I have been a fan of Moroccan candle holders and have wanted to try making them for a while now. I could use the store bought puffy paint but where is the fun in that? I decided to try out homemade puffy paint and I love how easy it was! Check out my little moroccan votives!

I have been a fan of Hefty® Slider bags. I used them recently to make these personalized favor bags too. I used them for this project too since they are super strong and sturdy thanks to the MaxLock® track design! Plus Hefty® Slider Bags cost less than Ziploc® Slider Bags, when comparing the same type of bag (freezer/storage) and size (quart/gallon) of the closest price point. I got my Hefty® Slider bags at Walmart and you should too! Plus check out this Ibotta offer to save $1 at Walmart just for you!

Materials to make Homemade puffy paint –
- Shaving Cream
- White glue
- All purpose flour
- Food coloring or craft paint (I used burgundy craft paint)
The recipe I used for DIY puffy paint is
- ¾ cup shaving cream
- ¼ cup white glue
- ¼ cup all purpose flour.
I got this recipe for the best DIY puffy paint from The Artful Parent but instead of food coloring, I used craft paint. I started out with food coloring and quickly realized that red is actually going to give pink and the only way to get red is to add a LOT of food coloring or I could use craft paint! So I used the burgundy craft paint and it turned out perfect!
How to make Moroccan votives with DIY puffy paint & Hefty® slider bags –
Step 1 – Combine all ingredients in the Hefty® Slider bag.
Step 2 – Close the bag and knead it to mix all the ingredients well. Don’t you just love the strength and MaxLock® track design of the bag!
Step 3 – Cut off a small tip on the corner of the bag.
Step 4 – Slowly make your designs on the votives to get your beautiful moroccan votives!
I must admit, was a little skeptical about how it would dry and if the paint would be hard enough but I must say it did turn out pretty well!
