This Christmas season I’ve got a few decorating projects lined up (like who doesn’t, right?). Hopefully I’ll get to all of them but I’m not makin’ any promises. I’ll just do the best I can. First up are these little Christmas votive holders.
Simple and sweet. At this time of year, I like anything that’s simple.
Here’s what I started with. Six little candle holders at 49 cents each from Goodwill.
I suppose they look cute enough as is, but they don’t really go with my decor.
I used a base coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – a mix of Paris Grey and Louis Blue.
Once that dried, I added a white wash in Old White, and wiped off just a little of it.
Just a hint of the grey-blue shows through. I painted the insides, as well.
Tucked inside are votives that came with glass holders. This way, wax doesn’t melt all over inside.
I grouped them atop my dining buffet and added some glass ornaments for more sparkle.
The white feather tree was a recent find, along with the star ornaments.
For just $3 I got some new Christmas votive holders that match my decor.
