from your scraps that you would like to accessorize with. Lay out your favorites and then decide if they will work as you want them too or not. Having a theme helps you narrow down your choices. Once decided, attach your selections using a hot glue gun.
Glue your favorite trim to your votive cup container. To hide my tumbler’s chip, I glued trim around the sides and also on top of the rim concealing the chip and the glue I could see from the first application. Place the glue on the trim. It cools too quickly on the glass. Press lightly so as not to ooze the glue out and burn your fingers like I did at first.
I also made this Angel Votive Cup at the same time using an etched stemware goblet that I paid ten-cents for at a yard sale. Here’s the results.
Find a gift box, as most people won’t have a container to store this wonderful, unique, fragile, handmade gift. Add some tissue paper and attach a handmade note and include the date. And there you have it. You just created your Handmade Christmas Votive Cup, a masterpiece and a one of a kind gift. Very hard to give away cause you like it so much!
