3 OZ Votives


Recommended Posts

Are 3 oz Votives very common? I mean do most people have a Votive Holder that will accomodate a 3 oz Dixie Cup Votive? I was messing around with some chunk Votives and thought that they might be better if they were a little larger than my molds.( Most of my molds are the straight...not regular shaped smaller Votives---by the way, do people like these?)

I happened to have some Dixie cups so I thought I would try them. They turned out AWESOME...but I just don't know if most people have a Votive holder this large or if there are any commercial companies with Votives this large?

Just wonderin'

I always ran into that problem with my octagonal votives - they take a bigger holder too. I found that many people have decorative votive holders that are huge! And while they burned OK in them, it wasn't ideal.

What I did was always give out a free votive holder to a new customer - they usually bought in multiples anyway. Or at least made sure I had some around for sale - I sold them for $1. That way they'd have at least *one* experience of votives buring right.

One thing I've got in my notes - the 3 oz dixie cup votives fit perfectly into some of the PartyLite wall sconces :)

The holder I use is the large oyster cup from WalMart. They are, I think, 57 cents and work wonderfully with the Dixie cup votives. Look good, too:) . I noticed in the Michael's ad this week, that they have all their votive holders 4/$1, but their oyster cups look to be the smaller ones.:sad2:

I usually use the 3 oz in gift sets or decorative holders...flower pot holder included. That way I know they have the right one. My website and my table signs at fairs all say that the jumbo volitves need a larger holder. I sell quite a few in the sets. Singles, I mostly sell 2 oz.
