This is everything you will need to make these votives for yourself:

  1. Purchase this yummy jelly and ask all your friends to as well. (the more jars the better!)
  2. Once you have thoroughly enjoyed your jelly, hopefully at a tea party or two, wash them out and remove the label if you like.
  3. Fill the jars about 1/2 full with white decorative sand .
  4. Nestle your choice of tea candles gently into the sand.
  5.  Arrange your jar or jars how you like, light the candles and enjoy!
