Hi everyone! So before I begin this tutorial, I just wanted to mention that this idea originated from blogger/YouTuber Hello Maphie, and I am just recreating the DIY for my readers. She is incredibly talented and creative, and although there are plenty of DIYs on the internet that no one really knows who did it first, this is not one of them. She is definitely the brains behind this one, so be sure to visit her channel HERE if you get the chance! (:
Let’s get into it! It’s pretty likely that you’ve seen Diptyque candles before. Diptyque is a Paris-based company that produces a line of scented candles, perfumes and face/body care. For years, the candles have been particularly popular, popping up allover Tumblr and Instagram. When the candle burns out, people like to use the empty votive holder to store q-tips, makeup brushes, lipsticks, etc. I loved the way these holders looked on top of vanities and coffee tables, but unfortunately, the price tag was a little out of my budget. So, I decided to DIY one instead! Here’s how:
You will need:
○ A printer
For me the most difficult item to pick out was a votive holder because there are so many different shapes and sizes to choose from. Once you have your holder, find a few pictures of different Diptyque candles on Google Images. Only select the most clear and crisp looking ones. I copied the images into Microsoft Word and then printed them out on the sticker paper. You then cut the stickers out individually and stick them to your votive. That’s it!
Thank you for reading and I would love to see some of your recreations!
