Once you've made your favorite scented candle or votive, don't stop there! Try your hand at making your own candleholders too!
This idea from Spirello blog is an easy and elegant one to start with! The lace candleholder makes a great table centerpiece, especially for weddings or more formal events.
What You Need:
- A Candle. Votives work best. Get all your candle supplies here!
- Old crochet doilies.
- A balloon.
- Wallpaper glue.
- Blow up the balloon and hang it with a string somewhere it can dry.
- Soak the doilies in wallpaper glue and stick them in an overlapping pattern over the balloon.
- Leave the balloon to dry. When completely dry, just pop the balloon and you'll have a beautiful lace shell you can use as a candleholder! (Make sure the candle you place inside is in some type of container, whether a glass votive or tea light holder.)
You could use this same technique with other materials as well, such as newspaper or string!
