The do-it-yourselfers from forthemakers.com show us how to cheer up a tablescape with a dose of color.  

Tools and Materials:

  • Glass votives (make sure they’re clean and free of debris)
  • Acrylic paint
  • Small dish or paint palette
  • Paint brush
  • Cup of water
  • Paper towel
  • Tealight candles

Step 1:

 First, prepare a paint palette with bright colors in tonal shades. Dip your paint brush into the acrylic paint and begin painting on the inside of the glass.
Step 2:
Mix white acrylic paint into your chosen colors to create complementary shades.

Step 3:

Layer colors on top of one another to create an abstract floral look. 

Step 4:

Once you have the colors just as you like, allow it to dry fully. Once dry, paint the entire inside with white acrylic paint.

Step 5:

Allow to dry completely before placing a tealight candle inside. Enjoy the glow!
