Hebrew Type Votives

If you follow my blog you might remember this photo from my “Oregon Trip” posting. These cool branches covered with pages from a book were from the West Elm store in Portland.

I wanted to try the same idea using Hebrew type. I used clear votive glasses because the lit candle lights up the words with a warm soft glow.  By the way, if you do this project, avoid using pages that have prayers or religious content on them. (I xeroxed a Hebrew newspaper).

Here are the materials I used for this project…everything was purchased at Michael’s craft store.

Decoupage is so easy…just brush the Mod Podge on the glass and apply the paper.  Then, to create a seal, brush more Mod Podge over the paper. In my inspiration piece, the paper was cut, but I decided I like the ripped effect better so I tore my paper.

I love the finished votives--a group of them would be pretty scattered on a holiday table.
