DIY Love Valentines Day Candle Decor

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, we've come up with an easy and inexpensive DIY idea to decorate your home. Using just a few items you too can make plain votive holders look amazing!



  • 5 Clear Votive Cups
  • Contact Paper
  • Painters Tape
  • Glass Etching Cream
  • Sponge Paint Brush
  • X-Acto Knife
  • Pencil and Marker



  1. Draw your letters out on the contact paper. (I went over the pencil with marker so that I could see it easier) Then cut it our using the X-Acto Knife.

      2. Use the painter's tape to mark off the areas that you will be etching. Apply the letter to the votive cup.

       3. Put a thick layer of the etching cream on the votive cup. Always follow the safety directions on the bottle of etching cream and avoid contact with skin and eyes. Let it set for 1 minute, then rinse off with water.

      4. Remove the tape and the contact paper. Repeat with the remaining letters. We dried the votive cups and placed tea lights in them to make the letters pop.
