Easy Craft - Autumn Votive Jar
*Battery powered votives – real ones could defiantly be a fire hazard
*Paper Raffia I got mine from Nashvillewraps.com
*Hot glue for the corn shuck ones
Choose the jar you like and fill it two-thirds full of corn kernels. You could use cabdy corn for this too. For both projects I tore one left over corn husk into narrow strips and glued a strip around my battery votives - looks so cute!. Tie a little raffia knot around the jar top and you are done! I used Orange and Kraft colored Raffia but any colors you like will be pretty.
Corn Husk Votive Jars
For this project, I curled the pretty corn husks around the inside of my glass canning jars. I stuffed more husks inside this curled layer to make a place for my battery powered votive to rest. As above, use your Raffia to tie a knot or bow arond the jar. These would be cute on your Thanksgiving table too.
I’d love to see pictures of your votives. Send them to Kathy Green and I will post them and give you credit in a future blog post.
