How to make a clothespin votive

Vases are one of those items that seem to collect over time. Anything from wedding gifts to flower arrangements leave you with a surplus of these items. Why not transform one of these plain vases into something useful and different?
In this DIY, clothespins are used to add some extra color and interest to a glass vase. With the addition of a candle, the vase is transformed into a votive and becomes a chic way to add coziness to any room. Want a more simplistic look? Use a solid color paper or even paint the clothespins instead.
