Scrubby Valentine Votives
I love a holiday that’s all about PINK!! Valentine’s Day has inspired me to make 4 votives from 2 hot pink scrubbies from the Dollar Tree Store. Aren’t they cute?!
What you’ll need is a pack of scrubbies (you’d be amazed at the colors they come it these days!)
When you take them out of the packaging they look like this. You’ll notice that there’s a little circle that’s gathered in the center—pull that apart.

The scrubbies will look like this when you take them apart.
If you’re a knitter, you’ll notice that scrubbies are knitted–who knew?! Since they are knit circularly, and in Stocknet stitch, they WANT TO ROLL. Which we love! And we use to our advantage.
We are going to use two more items from the Dollar Tree store: 4 small bowls (4 for $1),
and 4 glass candle sticks $1 each. They’ll eventually go together like this, but don’t glue them yet!
The scrubbies will cover 4 bowls–2 completely, and the other 2 will have wreath rims.
Start with the larger section of the scrubby and glue the rolled edge around the top of the rim with a glue gun. Please notice that the scrubby is behind and below the edge of the glass bowl.
Next twist the bottom to get a snug fit and apply a lot of hot glue around the twist. Hold it until the glue is dry and then cut the end off.
The nice thing is that the cut end fits perfectly inside the top of the candle stick. Now glue the bowl and the candle stick together. Use Epoxy.
Add a few beads from your stash or from old jewelry. Light a little votive candle and that’s it!
I can do that! And you can, too!
