Glass Etched Votives for Spring

These Glass Etched Votives were the perfect addition to my mantel!  While preparing my mantel for spring, I decided it needed something a little extra.  And since I’m slightly addicted to the Silhouette vinyl and Armour Etch, I decided to whip up something to fill in the holes!

Wanna make your own Glass Etched Votives?

Here’s what you need:

Votives and candles (99 cents each at Michaels)
Cameo
Vinyl
Armour Etch

Pick out your design in the Silhouette store.  Then create the stencil with the Silhouette vinyl.  Carefully apply to votive, taking extra care to get out all the bubbles and wrinkles otherwise the Armour Etch will bleed.

Glop on the Armour Etch and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

Rinse off the Armour Etch with warm water and remove stencil.

So easy!  I decided to make a set of three!  All of them are slightly different.   I think they turned out darling!
{The pictures would have turned out better if I had a different color votive, but I couldn’t find a purple that I liked!}
