Doily Flower Spring Votive

Spring is in the air here in the south. We are loving all the signs of spring…chirping birds, buds on trees, flowers poking through the ground. In anticipation of spring, we created this adorable little flower doily votive holder.

Spring Votive Doily CraftIs that not the cutest little thing! It was really simple to create and quite fast. You can make a few of these in no time. They would be perfect for your Easter table or just in your spring home décor.

Supplies needed to make your own spring votive doily craft:

Votive Supplies

Step One…

Place the doily into a small bowl. Pour the Aleen’s Fabric Stiffener on top of it. Put the plastic gloves on, and gently work the stiffener into the doily. Squeeze out the excess fabric stiffener.

Step Two…

Turn the votive upside down. Place some plastic wrap over the end of the votive, making sure it extends down a bit. Place the doily soaked in fabric stiffener over the plastic wrap. Press down firmly on the bottom of the votive to get the bottom of the doily flat. Gently press down the sides, leaving them extended a bit to get the flower petal look. As the doily dries { a couple of hours }, curl the edges of the doily a bit to get it to dry in the flower petal shape.

Step Three…

Once dry, the doily will be hard but light. Place the votive candle inside the doily. See how it looks like a sweet little flower? You could also use a faux tea light as well.

Step Four…

The final step is to simply attach the little butterfly to the side of the doily. These butterflies have a wire that you can use to attach them or you could use a hot glue gun as well. So sweet!
