Weekend Pick Me Up - Shabby Chic Votive Candle

Everyone knows about my not so secret obsession with shabby chic decor. I was scouring etsy the other day when I came across these shabby chic votive candles and I think they are just perfect.

Not only are they beautiful, but they're super affordable - $4 for each candle holder and even with shipping ($5) they're still under $10. The seller, Inspirations by Faith, will even do custom colors, text, and monogramming.

I've finally started redecorating my apartment (not sure if I can really say "redecorating" since I never got around to decorating it in the first place) and I think I'm going to pick up a set of these candles and make them part of a focal point in my new romantic shabby chic bathroom. Excitement!


  1. These are so so pretty!! They make me think "wedding" for some reason... hmm

  2. Yes, I can totally see that - I bet they would make cute favors :)

  3. I too am completely shabby chic obsessed! It all look so elegant and girly, love it! Very cute blog as well I am your newest follower :)

    1. Yay for shabby chic! Thanks for the follow :)

  4. I just stumbled upon this when googling my business name. Thank you so much for posting about my votives. These candles are one of my favorite "accidental" designs that I stumbled upon making while I was practicing stamping on curved glass surfaces. It turned out so cute, I grabbed a scrap of my vintage ribbon sitting on the work table, tied a bow, and now they are one of my biggest selling items! Of course I modified a few things in the design to make them more durable and to keep the ribbon in place, but they really were "a happy mistake". And they are my most popular wedding favor as was insightfully suggested above :) Cheers to everyone- hope you all have an inspired day!


Thank you so much for stopping by!
