  • I have so many votive candles, but I never find a good reason to light them. Having some fun candle holders like these would be a good excuse! I really like the glass ones with the gold glitter around the rim. It would be nice if I could find a candle holder that holds more than one at a time. I think those little votives look better in groups.
