The gleam of candles in glitter-embellished glass votives lights up the night.

Here's how: Press a small leaf-shaped stamp (available at craft stores) onto a glue stamp pad, ensuring the stamp is small enough to fit the container. Press the stamp onto a glass votive or hurricane. Hold the votive over paper and sprinkle fine silver glitter over the leaf shape. Let dry and gently blow off excess glitter—don't use a brush because the design is delicate. Don't worry if the leaf pattern isn't perfect—imperfections make the design unique.
