I have a really cute and simple little craft for you today. Bright beach inspired DIY raffia wrapped votive candles for your patio or anywhere. They are also budget friendly as all the supplies came from the Dollar Tree. Aren't they adorable in this little beach vingette.
I started with a couple of votive candles in jars and a couple of rolls of raffia that I found at our Dollar Tree. The raffia comes in packages of three skeins - a royal blue, a turquoise and a lime green - bright, very fun colors.
I simply wrapped each votive jar with the raffia using a little hot glue here and there to keep it in place.
Then I added a little bit of twine by winding it around and tying it in place. I glued a shell over the knot and wallah - you have a very cute little votive to use on your beach inspired patio or any where that you like.
Here are mine on my Twine Wrapped Table I made. I placed them in a little beach inspired vignette with a "faux" beach glass painted bottle wrapped with twine and filled with some beach grasses and a bucket of shells and twig balls.
So cute - so beachy - and so quick to make. I love these bright colors.
