Jeanne d' Arc style candleholders...part 2

I made some more votive candleholders in the Jeanne de' Arc style today and wanted to share them with you.

Two years ago hubby received a Keurig coffee maker for Christmas from yours truly and ever since then we have had extra coffee filters laying around so I used a few of them for this project.
I took a coffee filter and laid it on a paper towel, flattened it out somewhat and started stamping with my script rubber stamp.


{  No certain way to do it. It will look great no matter how you stamp it}
I stamped until I had filled one whole side .
Then I turned the filter upside down (rubber stamped image on the underside) and sat my glass candleholder in the middle.

I scrunched the coffee filter up around it ...
...tied a piece of jute around it and added a charm.

I put in tealight candles and I was done! :)


 Now you have something else to do with your extra coffee filters too. :)
