Yankee Candle ‘Pastel Hues’ Votive Holder Gift Idea using Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles -Yankee Candle ‘Pastel Hues’ Votive Holder Gift Idea

Happy Friday everyone! What are you up to? A little spot of crafting perhaps?  Not for me unfortunately, I’m doing the ‘behind the scenes’ part of my job today and spending the day at my desk blogging and background admin. But I plan to do some crafting on Sunday!

I’ve got a sweet little gift idea for you today, one that’s quick and easy to make, and to be fair, the votive and holder from Yankee Candles are gorgeous as they are, but look so much more adorable when embellished with a little stamping, some gorgeous toning ribbon and a pretty punched flower.

I know it’s not a Treat Friday gift of the edible variety, but that kind of goes out of the window in the Summer School Holidays for my boys, but this is a nice Treat Friday project anyway!

I hope you like it, and definitely check out the votive holders. They’re gorgeous!

Pootles’ Picks Shopping Gifts

Everyone who shops with me gets a handmade card and gift in the post. Sometimes the gift is a handcrafted item, sometimes it’s a product share, sometimes it’s something else entirely!

And every person gets that, regardless of how large or small your order is. I am grateful to everyone who shops with me.

I do however also have a Hostess Code and always share the goodies out amongst everyone who uses it. This month, I’m trialling something different.


  • Spend over £50/€65 and receive the divine Metallic Edge Ribbon in Silver worth £6.25/€8.50
  • Spend over £100/€135 and receive the utterly beautiful Background Bits stamp set worth £19/€25
  • If you’d still like to use the code and be part of the collective, but your order is under £50, please feel free to use it and I’ll make sure to pop a little something extra in your parcel!
  • If your order is over £150/€200 please do not use the code as you will be your own Hostess and get your own rewards to spend!

  1. Love those votive jars, and you’ve dressed them up so sweetly!

  2. Very nice!

  3. Nice project. Kind of wish my son didn’t graduate last year. Would have made these for the teachers. But great as coworker gifts, right?

  4. Lisa Sylvia says:

    So pretty.

  5. What a sweet little gift. My 92 yo Mom will be giving quite a few little jar candles for Christmas this year and I’m trying to decide how to package them, will have to take a look at your different boxes and bags to decide.
    Thanks for showing us this adorable project.
