Black Lace Candles

Simple glass votives are wrapped in black lace trim (this type of lace can be found in the ribbon section and sold by the yard at most craft and fabric stores. I purchased mine at Jo-Ann's). I'm pleased with the way these turned out. They have a bit of a Gothic feel to them.

Pick up a yard or two of black lace trim, cut off a strip that covers the perimeter of your votive candle. Using a needle and black thread, overlap the edges and make small stitches to tack in place.

    Thank you! I love this! I saw it on Pinterest as well. I am going to do this in ivory lace for my wedding. It was the perfect final touch I needed for my vintage wedding. Thank you so much!

    This is a very pretty idea. I have lots of votives.

    How easy is that? I thought you would have to use fabric or decoupage glue. I have lovely (very plain) battery operated candles with a very realistic flame. I’m going to go out and get holiday colors and have each seasonal changes.
