Gather your tools and materials. You’ll need glass votives, paintbrushes, a cup of water, acrylic paint and something to put it on like a glass dish. If you’re prone to make a mess, a paper towel or two could come in handy. Make sure the glass votives are clean and free of grease or debris.
We prepared a paint palate with bright colors in tonal shades. Dip your paint brush into the acrylic paint and begin painting on the inside of the glass.
Mix white acrylic paint into your chosen colors to create complementary shades.
Layer colors on top of one another to create an abstract floral look.
Once you have the color just as you like, allow it to dry fully. Once dry, paint the entire inside with white acrylic paint.
Allow to dry completely before placing a tealight candle inside. Enjoy the glow!
