When you burn a candle in a colourful mosaic votive holder, the light shines through the colourful mosaic in a rainbow. Although you can buy these holders from a home decorating store or through an online merchant, you can also make your own mosaic votive holders by hand using a few craft materials. You can give mosaic votive holders to family members and friends as thoughtful handmade presents.
