EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Twisted Beaded Wrap: For each votive, you will need one 52 1/2-inch piece of 28-gauge beading wire and 1 package (3 oz) faceted rochaille beads (6 millimeter). Thread 8 beads onto wire, fold wire in half and twist to make cluster of 8 beads. Skip short space on wire, then repeat process. Continue until end of beading wire. Wrap beaded wire around glass votive candleholder; twist two beaded loops together to hold in place and secure with drop of glue. Continue wrapping, twisting two beaded loops together at midway point to hold in place, until end is reached. Twist end with another beaded loop to hold in place and secure with drop of glue. Ribbon Wrap: For each votive, you will need one 26-inch piece of 1/4- to 3/8-inch-wide decorative ribbon. Glue one end of ribbon to candleholder about 1/4 inch from top; wrap ribbon around votive and glue opposite end to candleholder to secure.

Candles are so very popular and these sparkling beaded votives would really "light up" somebody's Christmas stocking. Make sure to include plenty of tea light or votive candles so they can be enjoyed right away.
