I saw a couple of people doing cool things with glue, food coloring, and glass candle holders, so I decided to see if I could put a winter/Frozen twist on it. While we love Disney’s Frozen around here, this was more about making something to decorate for the holidays that we could leave up all winter long!
DIY Frozen-Themed Tealight Holders
This is a really easy craft that the kids will enjoy, too. I tried a few different variations on this craft that I’ll share with you in a little bit, but here are the basic supplies you will need:
- Mod Podge
- Food Coloring
- Snowflake Punch
- Battery-operated Tealight
- Glass Votive Holder
- Paint Brush
- Paper Bowl for mixing Mod Podge and Food Coloring along with a plastic spoon for easy clean up.
After punching out a few snowflakes from my white paper, I poured some Mod Podge in a bowl and added 5 drops of blue food coloring. I love the look of this color!
I used my paint brush to paint the colored Mod Podge inside the votive holder and let it dry. This is where I tried a couple of different variations as when I was painting the blue Mod Podge over the snowflakes, I wasn’t sure how visible the snowflake would be. So, I made a second one with colored Mod Podge on the inside and uncolored Mod Podge on the outside. I wasn’t sure which I would like better until it dried completely.
Actually, I ended up liking the one with colored Mod Podge on both the inside and the outside. The one with clear Mod Podge on the outside is on the right in the picture above. Which one do you like better?
Now, that we’ve completed this project, my daughter says she has an idea for another way to decorate them. We’ll share her great thought in the near future! We had so much fun making our Frozen-Themed Tealight Holders!
