Now it’s time to show you what I made.

Scarlet Calliope Christmas Hop 1
  1. I bought a simple, undecorated votive at the grocery store and wrapped it with a vintage music sheet.
  2. Next, I added a strip of red paper at the top and bottom of the music sheet on the first votive.
  3. Then, I used a red scalloped circle, layered with an aqua scalloped circle and using foam dots placed my angel on top.

Scarlet Calliope Christmas Hop 5

I used Mama’s Mesh from the Merry Mesh Collection, along with some red ribbon from the brand new Simply Sheer in Christmas Candy. I also used some Rosebud Rumple Ribbon, and some Butterfly Blue Rumple Ribbon.

Scarlet Calliope Christmas Hop 2

I tucked in some sparkly details and attached a vintage Christmas ornament to finish it off.

Scarlet Calliope Christmas Hop 4

For the next two votives, I simply attached some tinsel to the back of the scallop and some silver glittered beads to the bottom.
