I had a whole bunch of little candles lying round the house and so I thought why not put them in mason jars to make them look like cute votive candles. But then I thought to myself “that’s not enough.” They definitely needed something more on them to look pretty, which was when I decided to add some lace and ribbon around them, just to give them something more to look at.
This is really simple to do at home and cheap as well. Half the stuff were things I had in my house. I only made a run to Hobby Lobby for some lace trims. All you need are:
- Mason jars
- Lace fabric or trims
- Measure out the lace around the jar and cut it, just leaving a little fabric to go over.
- Measure out the ribbon around the jar as well, making sure it’s long enough to tie a bow
- Wrap the lace around the jar and secure it with the ribbon making a knot and then a bow. (Don’t worry if the lace is loose, you can always tighten it once the ribbon is tied. Or you can always secure it with a pin)
- Add a candle into the jar and light it. As simple as that 🙂
