How To Make Patriotic Votives – 3 Ways

1. Patriotic Votives with Rice and Food Coloring:

I made these last year for the Fourth of July. They were a hit, so I’m making them this year for Memorial Day too! All you need is a mason jar, rice, food coloring and a votive candle.

  • Start by pouring rice into 2 different bowls. Squeeze red food coloring into one bowl, and blue food coloring into the other. Mix until rice is completely coated. Let dry for at least 20 minutes.
  • Pour a layer of red rice into the mason jar. Follow by a layer of plain rice and then top with the blue rice.
  • Place your white votive candle on top of the blue rice and twist back and forth until the candle is pushed half way down into the rice mixture.
  • Repeat and make as many as needed for your Red White and Blue celebration.
