DIY Quick & Easy Lace Candle Holders

DIY Quick & Easy Lace Candle Holders

My love affair with candles started when I was 14. We had to make crafty thing to sell at the school Christmas bazaar, and a candle-making workshop was where it all kicked off. Since then, I try to make my own if I can, like this one here and here . But making candles from scratch is not always possible..so I cheat a little by embellishing the candle holder itself. With a little imagination, anyone can create really amazing bespoke candles. And no, you do not need to be a seasoned crafter either! ;) These candles would be perfect for cozy dinner party tables or winter weddings!

I had found some vintage pink saucers in a flea marked, and all I needed was to spray paint some ceramic candlesticks to match.  I have to say I was hooked - Not only was it easy to make, so pretty, but also way more inexpensive than buying individual stands. Now I have all sorts of plans for making larger DIY ceramic cake and cupcake stand - So watch this space! ;)

This is how these pink, glittered, candle cuties came to be. They'd be perfect for those lazy summer evenings - Imagine how they'd flicker and glisten on your tabletops or patios. Pretty picture, right?!  :) Super easy to make too (I used melt and pour wax!). Get the full crafty tutorial below.

My husband is not a sweet kinda guy. I'm mean, he's very sweet as a husband, he just doesn't like eating sweet things. So my baking cookies or cakes on Valentine's Day is wasted on him. This is why handmade, cute, scented, sparkly, heart-shaped LOVE soap is the perfect DIY gift for him! But if the words handmade soap  sound scary, then fear not - I'm using 'Melt and Pour' Soap base, so it's super quick and easy! ;)
