  1. Using pinking shears, cut your tulle fabric to be 10” square. Hint: try making one favor first to make sure the fabric measurement fits your votive perfectly since the candles can vary slightly in size from different companies.
  2. If your votive comes in plastic wrap remove the wrap to let the scent escape.
  3. Gather up the tulle fabric square around the votive and pinch and twist it closed above the wick.
  4. With the help of a friend or family member, tie the ribbon around the tulle tightly.
  5. A hole-punched tag may be added to the ribbon (before tying) with your initials, wedding date, or a sweet sentiment like "Our Love Glows".
