Memorial Day Craft: Patriotic Votives

Memorial Day Craft: Patriotic Votives

Memorial Day is coming up on Monday. Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is when we honor Americans who have died for our country in all wars. Over 100 years ago, it became a widespread practice to decorate the graves of soldiers by friends and family.

With no surprise, Martha Stewart has come up with two ideas that I love; a table top patriotic votive and glowing hanging votives that I thought would be nice to make and to light in honor of our soldiers.
