This sweet candle will make a great gift for your someone special to place alongside the tub. The supplies are relatively inexpensive and easy to obtain so you can make Valentine candy candles for all the special people in your life.
What you will need:
Fluted ivy bowl
Glass votive holder to fit inside the vase
Candle to fit inside the votive
Red ribbon, 1/2 inch wide
Red and white cinnamon hearts or similar Valentine candy
White glue or tacky glue
Instructions for the project:
Begin by filling the ivy bowl about two thirds full with red and white Valentine’s Day candy. Place the candle in the candle votive and then press the votive down into the candy so that the candle is nestled right in the center of the ivy bowl. You can then add four Valentine’s Day stickers to the outside of the ivy bowl, about one inch below the neck of the bowl. You will want to make sure all four stickers are placed an equal distance 1 apart. Fasten a length of 1/2 inch red ribbon around the neck of the ivy bowl and tie it with a small “shoelace” type bow. If you glue the two ends of the ribbon together with one end of the ribbon glued in place at a right angle to the other end this will form the sharp point of a heart shape. You can then put another dab of glue behind the joined ribbon ends; push the ends up slightly to force the ribbon into a heart shape, and then glue the ribbon end to the glass of the ivy bowl.
