Valentine Votive Candy Cup

Hello friends!
Today I want to share with you a quick and easy tutorial for this cute candy cup.




 
This pretty little treat holder starts with a glass votive
 that you could pick up really cheap at a thrift store.




 
Now take a pink and white pipe cleaner and twine them together.


 


Now bend the pipe cleaner so that you have the shape of a handle.
Place it on the votive.
Take a pretty piece of dyed seam binding or ribbon and wrap a tight bow around the votive, making sure you are tying the pipe cleaners to the sides.





Now cut the pipe cleaners so that the ends stick out a little beneath the ribbon. Bend the pipe cleaners up, so that they are secure around the ribbon.
Add a flower to the center of the bow and voila! That's it!




 
Now you can fill it with your favorite candy! I chose Valentine M&M's.




Here is your sweet valentine for the day!


 


 
Wishing you all a lovely day, Lindsey
