Last Minute Gifts: Mod Podge Candle Holders

I made these today...glass candle holders from Michael's that I Mod Podged and decorated with some glitter.  They remind me of something from the 1970s, but I still think they are cute!  And they are Christmas presents.
The peace signs candle holder is made from a piece of scrapbook paper. 
I put a larger votive inside so that it would last longer than a tea light.
I think I like the music one more because there the back of the music sheets show on the inside of the holder.  The peace signs candle holder is just white on the inside.
I wanted to light them but since they are presents, I didn't!
Total cost (including candles) for both candle holders was $7.50.

Fun project. I love that the music shows through too. I mod podged some battery candles so that they look more festive. I love it!

I love your candle holders, don't see why they couldn't be used all year unless the music on it is specifically Christmas. So pretty, imagine they look really special when they're lit us. I love to have candles lit in my home at night, makes things look so cozy and if it's a scented candle makes things smell nicer. (we have a dog that looks alot like the dog on your old header in his snow coat.)
