lace-diy-holders

Lace and candlelight – probably two of the most romantic elements combined in one nifty DIY. Let’s get cracking!

You will need:

  • Thick lace ribbon
  • A shot glass or small glass candle holder
  • Tea light candle
  • Clear glue or a glue gun
  • Embellishments like rhinestones or little pearls

To make your candle holder:

  • Start by measuring your lace by wrapping it around the glass and finding the point where the two ends meet up. Cut the ribbon straight at this point.
  • Draw a line of clear glue from the rim of the glass to the base and stick one end of the ribbon down.
  • Apply two lines of glue – one at the top just below the rim and one at the bottom just above the base.
  • Place the glass on its side on a flat surface so that the lace part that’s already stuck down is lying flat on the table.
  • Now roll the glass gently over the flat surface, keeping the ribbon taught. This will ensure that the ribbon sticks evenly.
  • End if off by applying a final line of glue from rim to base, right at the end where the ribbon meets
  • Finally, complete your project by gluing your embellishments along the “seam” to round it off neatly.
