Supplies needed to make Romantic Lace Candle Holders

Step 1: Take out the lace trim you would like to use on your candle holder. Wrap it around the candle holder and cut off the extra lace.

Step 2: Place the lace trim on a piece of wax paper. Apply the Découpage finish onto a small length of lace (just enough to go on one side of the candle holder) using the brush.

Step 3: Lay the candle holder on its side and apply the lace trim on one side. Allow it to dry for about 15-20 minutes.

    I can’t show these to my older daughter b/c she will beg me to make them for her on the spot. For as long as I can remember she has been fascinated by lace in fashion and art. Gorgeous!

    Yesterday I was sort of down in the dumps and there’s a Michael’s 1 mile from us so DH wanted me to drive him to Quisnos for a sub. As I entered the door and started to walk down the crafts aisles, I spotted lace like this in cellaphane packages with glass vases and mason jar sample demostrations above. I didn’t really check it out thoroughly but immediately I knew I had seen this on Pinterest. Next time I’m down there, I’ll check it out more thoroughly. Since DH was waiting for me, I couldn’t take my time to examine it.
