Melt My Heart Candle Holder


A painted candle holder shows off a glowing heart when a candle is burning! (Bonus: That cute garland in the background is so easy!)



  • Crafts paint: red and white
  • Glass votive (ours is 3″ tall and 2.5″ diameter)
  • Foam paintbrush
  • Acrylic paintbrush
  • Heart pattern (print the pattern here)


Assemble the Candle Holder:


1. Cut out the heart pattern and tape it to the inside of the votive. Using red paint and acrylic paintbrush, use the pattern as a guide to outline a heart shape on the outside of the votive.



2. Use the foam brush to paint the rest of the votive red, leaving the heart shape unpainted. Add a second coat of paint if desired; let dry.


3. Add polka dots using the acrylic paintbrush and white paint; let dry.

Love that garland in the background? We folded punched 1-3/4″-wide circles and die-cut doilies in half, then used glue gots to secure them to a length of baker’s twine.
