I am thinking of doing votive candle holders similar to these. This may be a stupid question, but how do you keep them from catching on fire. I know votives have the metal or plastic outside covers, but I can just see something flickering and everything going up in flames, is this a dumb concern? Or is there a way to prevent this…

Are those actually made of wood? Or are they some sort of plaster mold designed to look like wood?

In some states, you can buy anti-flammatory spray at craft stores like Michael’s. It’s the same sort of stuff you spray on Christmas trees, but I think it would also work in this situation. If your state is one of those places were the product is not available to the mass public, call your local fire hall. Lots of fire departments and boy scout groups are allowed to have the spray for Christmas trees, and they will spray your wood for you for a small donation.

I don’t know if the ones in the pictures are actually wood, but we have so much scrap wood lying around, I was planning on making them myself. I know they have those tools to hollow out the place for the candle, and we can use it as firewood this winter after the wedding, depending on if we go with the anti-flammatory spray…
