Since we’re not recycling glass anymore I’m still using glass jars from condiments and pickles and such for feline and flower votives, and this time I worked out a few different designs of ones that are painted on the outside rather than using the clear labels, and some can be used with pillar candles or seed lights. I’ve been visualizing these for a while and it’s good to finally get them out of my system.
All are etched to diffuse the light from the candle inside. They have either a vinyl label I’ve printed or hand-painting on the outside, but a couple are etched on the outside with alcohol ink on the inside. Because I’m largely using recycled jars each one is unique and I enjoy fitting the art or image to the shape and size of the jar. To some of them I add an extra finish in areas where a label won’t cover easily with alcohol inks.
A Special Discount
All the smaller ones are $15 each including shipping (or $10 if you’re local and can pick up) and include an LED candle. Price includes shipping.
You can also purchase two votives for $25.00, a savings of $5.00. I incorporate $5.00 shipping into each item’s price, but the cost of shipping two is the same as shipping one. Use the coupon code 2VOTIVES25 in your shopping cart for the discount.
Below is a gallery of the new ones. Browse them for the ones you like, then go to my gallery of Votives in my Handmade Gifts Gallery. In many cases you can also find other products with the same design, a card, tote, print, keepsake, for instance, which makes for a nice gift set.
