Very High Quality And Personal Favorite
These votive holders just shimmer when you place your favorite sampler votives and light them! The cracked glass looks just like ice in the winter, but can be used all year long. A highly recommended product!

My favorite votive holder that I own.
I love the look of this votive holder! It's so beautiful with the small crackle appeal to it and when you're using it at night it gives the votives a nice, subtle flicker effect through the cracks. It's held up great through all of my constant candle burning and I continue on using it! A very affordable price for a great product that gives life to the decor of any room.

The thin, spidery cracks in the glass of this votive holder make interesting patterns on the wall. I enjoy using this as a votive holder, and because the bottom of the interior is flat, it can also be used to burn tealights without them slipping around inside. Also, the low light of the tealight will allow for even more light play on the walls.

Great Versatile Product
I am very pleased with these versatile glass candle accessories in that I am able to use them with different candle shades for which I do not have the "matching" votive candle accessories.

Base too wide
I'm not quite sure what the proper approach is supposed to be with votive candles. Do you try to manage them so they don't melt through the side and spill wax all over the holder? Or do you put them in a holder just slightly larger than the candle and let the holder act somewhat like the jar with the bigger candles?
My approach has been the latter, and for that this holder is a bust. The base and the bulge around the middle provide too much area for the candle to melt into. Very quickly you end up with wax melted into the bottom of the container and not enough wick left.
If you're buying this for a small votive you intend to burn just once, this would probably work okay. For Yankee votives where you'd like to get the full 15 hours of burn time out of them, this doesn't work well at all.
Be very careful when cleaning the spent wax from this holder. I cracked the lip of mine with an incidental tap from the knife I used to dislodge the wax.
