These sweet little DIY Lace Candle Holders are a breeze to make. They are a cute vintage-inspired Valentine’s decoration. They would also make nice Valentine’s gifts for teachers or grandparents. You can use doilies or lace. I tried both and really liked the way each turned out. I also like the way the glass become slightly foggy when the Mod Podge dries.
What you need:
- votive candle holders (Dollar Tree, I bought 3) cost – $3
- votive candles (Dollar Tree) cost – $1
- Paper Doilies (Dollar Tree) cost – $1
- Lace (I had a few vintage hankies on hand that I cut up and used for this project. I see them at every thrift store, for only a buck or two. You could also just use any lace, it doesn’t have to be old. Get a 1/4 yard of something pretty at the fabric store. Eyelets would look cool. Or you could just stick with the paper ones that the dollar store has!)
- Mod Podge or white glue. (Dollar Store or Craft Store) (on hand or $1)
Total Cost – $6 for three votive holders.
What you do:
- Cut the lace or doilies to fit your votive holders.
- Spread a nice layer of glue or Mod Podge on the glass and place the lace on it.
- Cover the lace with another thick layer of Mod Podge.
- Let dry overnight.
- Put a candle in and enjoy.
