I just cannot wait for the holidays this year! I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but there’s something comforting about slowly getting our apartment ready for the upcoming holidays. After rounding up some must-try votive diys, I decided to make some of my own!

Start by applying your adhesive (comes with the kit) to your votive. Let dry for about 15 minutes.

Once the adhesive changes from a milky color to clear, you’re ready to apply your gold foil.

With a fine bristle brush, gently dust off the excess gold foil.

Apply sealer over foil and let dry.

While your votives are drying, shape wire into circle. Measure enough to make a mini wreath frame that you can slip over your candle. Secure the rosemary to the frame by twisting wire pieces until tight. Once finished and votives are dry, light a candle and enjoy!
