Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

When illuminated, these votive holders cast an eyeful of moody shadows on the walls.


  • Glass votive holders
  • Black construction paper
  • Hole punch
  • Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush
  • Black paint


Tear a sheet of black construction paper into about a dozen small rectangles that measure roughly 1¼ inch by ½ inch. Use a hole punch to add two eyes to each piece.

CandleEyebra - Step 2

Brush a portion of a plain, glass votive holder with Mod Podge, affix a paper rectangle, then paint more Mod Podge over it. Add the other pieces the same way, making sure the edges overlap.

When the candleholder is dry, use a tiny paintbrush and black paint to add little round pupils inside the eyes.
