You might also want to check out Oriental Trading or Ikea. If you’re looking for tealights, Ikea sells them in bags of like 50 or more for super cheap.

I got a lot from IKEA & crazy enough-I found my 3 x 3 square glass votives at the dollar tree! I would have never thought to check there and I was about to pay $3+ on each one! I’d be careful with buying online-just make sure the shipping doesn’t actually ax out the cost savings-that was my trouble!

Pier1 has little clear glass votives in several shapes for $1a piece, and sometimes they go on sale.  Go on Platinum Tuesdays (first Tues of each month for 10% off your purchase).

For votive holders hands down Ikea has the best prices, and they have 3 different sizes. (I did an exhaustive online search and when you factored in shipping cost an in store purchase from Ikea worked out to be the best price per piece.) 

I bought my glass votives and now am searching out the best price on candles. Ikea has votive candles in the silver cups but me being super anal I want the ones in the clear cups (they are also more expensive). However, the Ikea votive/tealights burn for about 4 hours and are sold in a bulk bag of 50 at a great price.

I got my votives from Joann.com with a 50% off coupon. If you go to their site, they often post different coupons each day and you can probably catch a good one.

 I also got my holders from Ikea, but opted for small juice glasses instead which turned out to be 6 glasses for $2 which I thought was a great deal.

do not go to craftsnfavors on ebay or efavormart.com

i had to return mine twice and they gave me hell! it was awful! the quality was a joke. the candles were all lumpy and wobbley in the votives and their wicks were crooked out the sides! def not those related companies. somehow they are the same company but they go by a different name on ebay. they also have another branch of their company called ya ya creation? it was confusing, i never knew who i was speaking to to resolve the issues.

Try the dollar store. Sometimes they really have good finds there. You’d be surprised.
