Photos via Once WedThis project is versatile - choose any color palette, simple - only three ingredients, and they make a great giveaway to guests.
1. Pick up glass votives from a local craft market, floral wholesaler, or online supplier. I like the idea of using a textured votive holders to add dimension and visual interest. Luna Bazaar has an awesome selection of candle holders and until August 31st, you can save 5% off your entire order if you use SummerWedding at the checkout! WOOT!
2. Choose a couple of acrylic paint colors and mix with a little water in separate bowls until thin but not too runny.
3. With a paint brush, scribble watery paint on the inside of the glass. You may need a few brushes so that the colors don't run together and look like brown goo. You can let one section dry and then layer another color across the top if that is easier. Remember to leave some clear, see through space.
4. Once dry, add a votive candle and a sweet tag for guests to remember you by.
And voila, an easy peasy DIY wedding project that will make a beautiful impression. I can see this being used for all sort of other celebrations - bridal shower, birthday party, intimate dinner party - anywhere where color and light and DIY can be celebrated!
