Oh my these votive holders made with zippers are such a neat idea and so simple and cheap to make especially if you have a zipper stash like me. Would this not look cool in a teenagers room for a simple candle light effect. You can even use the fake tea lights that flicker. What great gifts these will make. Thanks.

OMG! These are so fun. I would have never thought of making anything like these Hanging Zipper Votive Holders on my own. Now I can't wait to make some to hang in my craft room. These are so original, and so simple and easy to make. Wouldn't these look cute with buttons too?

@momnquilter: I've seen them at JoAnn's, I think multi-color packs and your choice of sizes, stocked where the wool roving and needle felting supplies are displayed.

I really love this idea, but where can the wool balls be found? I've never seen any like this. Thanks
