Jane Austen votive holder

DIY Jane Austen votive candle holder

I am a HUGE Jane Austen fan. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book of all time. I would like to have a Jane Austen party one day, aka the “man repellant” party – where my friends and I could have a movie viewing and fawn all over Matthew Macfadyen (or Colin Firth depending on your preferred version). We’d have these candles there, which are so easy to make. You’ll want to bust over several for gifts and parties alike. Do you want to learn to make them? Visit the tutorial below.

    Hi Amy, nice idea! I love Jane Austen and I for me Colin Firth will always be the perfect Mr. Darcy ♥, For this project I will use the page were Elizabeth runs to meet Jane who was sick and observed Miss Bingley makes a rude comment about Elizabeth look but Mr. Darcy says the exercise brought out the brightness in her eyes. Woaw I got carried away!
