Group an assortment of glass votives wrapped with flowery vines on a table, mantel, or anywhere a soft glow is welcome.

Here's how: Use leaf- and flower-shape templates (see page 206, Family Circle, March 2008) and different colored card stocks to make leaves and flowers. Enlarge or reduce templates as desired. Fold leaves and flowers in half; arrange up and down the floral wire "stem," and use a paintbrush dipped in craft glue to adhere. Twist the finished flower vines around the votives, but keep paper embellishments away from flame.
