Step 1: Place Votive Holder in Jar

Insert a small glass votive holder into the center of a wide-mouth jar. (When choosing jars, make sure they all have wide enough mouths to fit most of your hand down into.)

Step 2: Add Sea Glass or Colorful Stones

Gently place sea glass or stones around the glass votive holder. Make sure the votive holder stays in the center of the jar.

Step 3: Add a Tea Light

Place a flickering LED light into the glass votive holder. To conserve battery power, tea lights can be turned off when they're not in use.
