June 2, 2006, Newsletter Issue #2: Husky Holders For Your Votives

Tip of the Week

If you love different and unique try using dried corn husks to decorate your votives. Corn husks can be bought at craft stores and usually have a beautiful, delicate coloring to them. They’re perfect for those romantic meals on a hot summer’s night. To make corn husk covered holders for you votives you will need:
• A cutting mat
• Utility knife
• A ruler
• Dried corn husks
• Votive holders
• Scented votives
• Double sided tape
• Ribbon
• Scissors
On your utility mat, cut the widest part of the corn husks to match the height of your votive holders. Apply your double sided tape about a ¼ inch from bottom of the votive holder. Press on two or three of the corn husk pieces, overlapping their edges to cover the entire holder. Finish off by tying a ribbon around the votive holder. Now place your votives in the holder but be sure to trim the wick short and keep it short. Dried corn husks will burn easily so keep a close eye on your flame. Some great summer scented votives are Cucumber and Cantaloupe, Fresh Peach, and Island Mango.
