Hello!I hope you're all having a lovely week. Sorry my Tuesday tutorial is a little late today, but we had a horrible storm and were w/out power for a good percentage of the day. So, today's tutorial is based on all of the gorgeous lace covered candles I have been seeing out there on the internet.
So, of course I had to give it a go and make some myself.
To make my candles, I simply gathered some clear glass candles. (Heather mentioned she found them at the Family Dollar for like $1.50 a piece, and sure enough that's where I found them as well!) I also gathered some vintage lace, little bits of vintage millinery, a vintage silk scarf, The Ultimate glue, and a foam brush. That's really all you need.
I poured out some of my Ultimate glue onto a dish and using my foam brush applied glue all over my candle. Then, I just started adding lace. I layered some, and some I just left with the one layer of lace.
I tore my vintage silk scarf into strips and tied a pretty bow onto my candle once I was happy with the lace layers. Then I finished it off by gluing on a bit of vintage millinery. REALLY easy, and REALLY addictive.
They're quite lovely when they're burning and you can see the flame through the lace, and I just love them placed around my studio and home. I also think they would make wonderful and inexpensive gifts!
I hope you'll make some lace covered candles too, or perhaps you already have? Leave me a link in the comments if you have, I would love to see yours. What projects have you been inspired to create from pinterest?
