DIY Vintage Goblet Votives

one of my favorites was candle-stick making. so when i saw this DIY on {what junebug loves} i knew it was something i needed to get busy on. these vintage goblet votives would be lovely as a table centerpiece or would provide the perfect romantic ambiance bunched together on the mantel.
