After putting the votive together i wanted to make the plain black cardstock glisten a bit so I painted on some glue and sprinkled on some glitter. The glitter was clear so I had hoped it would shine black. But it didn't. It looks more like frost on a black surface. So i didn't glitter the whole thing. It's plain on one side and frosty on the other. lol
And now for it's place of honor on my dining room table. Yes ok, it seemed really big above but it's quite small in comparison to some of my other creations. My son was so proud that he was able to turn on all of the little votive candles all by himself. The ones that look like candles are supposed to sit in the cups for the candelabra but the cups aren't attached so they all fall down when he tries. No worries, the candelabra still looks great without it's candles.
Hope you all have a fantastic night! I hope to have more to share with you soon.
