    KatJoy227:  I like the DIY version! I like how it matches the colors of the others. Not really a fan of how the other one sticks out, since all 3 of the other pieces are the same color! Lookds great!!

    I agree that the bought one looks more mercury glass-y but the DIY one matches the rest better! I vote DIY!

    I actually think mix matchy is in right now and like the variation. 🙂 I guess it depends on if you are doing one or two votives (or more). I think it would look better if you did two (or more) of the store bought votives rather than just one because it will balance out the contrast better. Otherwise just stick with the DIY votive.

    I like the more matte appearance of the DIY one!

    I prefer a mix of textures and color.  Glitter, mercury glass, matte, shiny, metal, etc.  Mixing stuff allows your eye to move around the items.  When everything is the same, it can come off as flat and a little lifeless.  Remember variey is the spice of life, even in centerpieces.  Good luck!

    mrsblueeyes:  I agree with you. The mismatch look is in. I think that’ll look very pretty than all being the same color texture.

    I voted for the store bought votive but only because I like the variation it gives to the centerpiece. But if you are going for a solidarity look than the DIY version may be best.
