How to Make

  1. Paint alternating stripes in three different colours around a glass votive and leave to dry.
  2. Paint the same stripy pattern across a mini porcelain frame so that they match.
  3. Fix a small piece of coloured cellophane behind the wing area of a butterfly sticker and cut around the edge, leaving the middle body piece - thorax and abdomen - uncovered.
  4. Fix cellophane butterflies to the dried votive and frame using the sticky body area. Add smaller stickers for extra decoration.

Top Tip

For really straight lines around your votive, place it on a flat surface and turn it while holding the paint pen against the side.
