We're big fans of votives, especially when we make them ourselves. They're great as homemade gifts, accent pieces and mood setting centerpieces for dinners.

Materials & Tools

  • Gauge No 6 / 0.5mm copper sheet* (used in card making)
  • Metal hole punch
  • Air dry clay
  • Metal snips (or you can use scissors with this metal sheet)
  • Cookie cutters
  • Roller
  • Multi-purpose adhesive



  • Try cookie cutters and hole punches in different sizes to vary the shapes and patterns of each votive.
  • *We recommend using battery-operated tea lights with this DIY. If you choose to use candles, always be aware of heat when using them around metal.
