CW: WRAPPED VOTIVES

Hi y'all!  I am Angie from The Country Chic Cottage.  I am so excited to be participating in Creativity Week here on seven thirty three.  I just love a good craft tutorial...they make blogging fun!  So here we go...

Ever needed a really quick wrap for some votive holders?  Company coming?  Got someone to impress with your craftiness?  Well this is quick, cheap, and EASY! 


You just wrap some of your drinking glasses.  Yeah those in your cabinet right now...go get em!  For the smaller two you will need burlap, fabric, and jute.




For the first one, I used my Cropadile.  Okay if you don't have one -- you will just have to skip this one or just put holes in your fabric without grommets.  I just love the Cropadile for putting in holes and grommets.  Use a piece of fabric the same height as your glass and enough width to go almost all the way around.  Rip those edges instead of cutting -- makes it interesting...


A couple of holes on each side and thread that jute just like you were lacing your shoes.


Pull it tight and tie it off.  One done -- already!  The next one is based on the same concept as my burlap and ribbon pillows.  Cut a piece of burlap the same height as your glass and enough width to go all the way around.  Remove some strings from your burlap on either side of you "opening".  Trust me -- those strings just pull out.




Thread in the jute again (lace up those shoes).  Tie it off -- and number two is DONE! 


Now for the taller one in the center.  I have a thing for sweaters -- sweater pillowssweater balls...and now sweater votive wraps!  You will need a piece of a sweater the same height as your glass and enough width to go almost all the way around (I think I have said that before...).  For this one I used ribbon to "tie it up". 


I took my seam ripper and tore a strand where I wanted a hole to be.  Yep that is it....


Thread in your ribbon and lace it up!


Three candle wraps -- super quick! 


I want to thank Kim for letting me guest post today.  I hope you all enjoyed it and stop by The Country Chic Cottage anytime!
