Dictionary Votives

With a dictionary from the thrift store, Walmart votives, and a little watered down Elmer's glue, these little votives came to life. 

I tired to find pictures for each votive, a lilac, a deer, mushrooms, etc. You can see how they look lit and not lit. The one in the front didn't want to flame very much.

When lit, you get a nice yellowed glow.

The wooden box they are sitting in is something I picked up at a garage sale. It looks like a little drawer, but both ends are finished and no hardware. 

It's so nice to have spring here early and have daffodils to give away.  I gave my daughter and Mom each a big bunch, and there is still lots in the yard. It's the only bulbs the chipmunks won't eat!
