DIY Flower Votive Tutorial
Hello Dream a Little Bigger readers! I’m Ama from Ohoh blog, happy to meet you. I’m a new contributor on DALB, so once a month I will propose you an original DIY. Let start today with a cute flower votive. I’m sure you have some of those glass votives store somewhere in your house. With just a few items, you can customize them into beautiful centerpieces flowers.
- Color paper
- Glass votive
Step 1: Put the votive on the sheet and draw the circle base.
Step 2: With the compass draw a bigger circle, about 8” diameter. If you don’t have a compass, just use a plate, a pot lid or anything round you have on hand.
Step 3: Draw a flower between the two circles.
Step 4: Cut the flower, and take off a part of the center.
Step 5: Cut small flaps around the center.
Step 6: Repeat step 1 to 6 as many time you need. You can also use the first flower as template.
Step 7: Put three flowers on top of each other and fold the center slits.
Step 8: Slip flowers around the votive base and fix the flaps with adhesive tape.
Step 9: Glue a strip of paper on top of the flaps to have a nice finish.
I love the result, it really dresses up a table. I choose some fall colors but it will work for any season. Maybe a deep red for Christmas and a bright yellow for spring. I hope you enjoy it. See you next month for another DIY.
