Glitter Votive Holders & Thanksgiving Centerpiece

9:14:00 PM

This Thanksgiving tablescape is inspired by a couple of my favorite bloggers. In the last week or so, Kelly at Live Laugh Rowe shared her Thanksgiving tablescape from last year, which included upside down goblets to create some height. This inspired me to dig out some awesome 70's goblets from my mom that is harvest gold...perfect for Thanksgiving!

Then Miranda at the Pinterest Project posted about using Modge Podge to glitter up some pillar candles. I've been attempting to get my craft supplies in order, and I happened to find some glitter tucked away, along with some clear glass votive holders from a failed project (don't ask). Keep in mind I have a 4-year-old girl, and everything is better with glitter in her mind, so I knew regardless of the outcome, one person would be happy with the results.

So for the glitter votive holders, this is what you need:

Clean glass votive holders (no residue from candles...or old failed crafts)
Painters tape
Mod podge or other adhesive

You will also want something to catch the excess glitter. I just used a piece of newspaper.

This is the super easy process:

Tape off the area that you want glittered with painters tape.

Brush on the Modge Podge. You want the coat to be even.

Shake the glitter onto the adhesive. Do this over a piece of paper so you can easily catch and reuse the excess. Yes, most likely you will feel like you are back in school, playing with glitter like this. I know I did!

Allow to dry before carefully peeling off the tape.

Then you can arrange your upside down goblets. Throw in a coppery lantern, a platter, some leaf dishes.

In about 20 minutes of hands on time, there you have it--a glittery harvest time centerpiece.

And of course, as soon as Lil Bit saw it, she loved it!
