Rose Petal Votive

Hi there! I've been wanting to make this rose petal votive for the longest time and I finally had the chance! It was so fast and easy to put together and looks AMAZING. It'll make the perfect addition to any table decoration.

You will need the following supplies:

- One Ivy Bowl or Bubble Ball Bowl
- One solid color bag of fake rose petals
- Hot glue gun
- Battery operated candle or Firefly Lights
- Bling (optional)

Apply hot glue to the very bottom of a petal. 

Place it on the bowl so that the tip of the petal is slightly above the rim of the bowl.  By gluing only the bottom down, the top droops a little bit like a real rose. 

Glue petals down one by one until you have a layer that circles the entire bowl. Now start to apply the next layer so that it overlaps the top layer.  To make it look more organic, off center the petals so they aren't lined up perfectly. 

Continue to work layer by layer until you cover the whole bowl. 

 You can add some bling to the bottom of the bowl if you'd like but it's not necessary.

There you have it! I can't wait to use mine in my room or for a romantic candlelight dinner :)

Until next time, happy crafting!
