Dollar Store DIY Project--Making Colorful Votives

Kellie from Nest of Posies made these great Dollar Store Dipped Votive Candles and I wanted to share her wonderful work with you. Visit her site to get the exact directions (I promise you, they are NOT hard!) And these dipped Dollar Store votive candles are perfect for tabletops for picnic or backyard wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners and post wedding parties.

Bright colors make tabletops pop no matter how casual or formal your wedding is. Add them to the tops of outdoor wedding tables, but be sure to group them together to get the 'color block' look. 

I admit, I fell in love with this project! Obviously you could make the pot shown yourself as well, some colorful rick rack added to a painted pot, then add some bright colored flowers! Simple!

The hardest part of these do it yourself projects? Choosing the colors! There are so many great paint colors to choose from!

Having an indoor wedding come winter time? Try metallic and jewel tone colors!

So head over to Nest of Posies and get ready for a nice long visit, so many great ideas, so little time! But it's well worth it to take some time to browse through all Kellie's great work!
