The last few years I’ve added a few dark glam pieces to the Halloween decor. Last year I made a large black glittered candelabra and I wanted to balance the fireplace out with a little light on the other side. I decided some dollar store votives would be just the thing. To glam them up, I added a little lace.
How to Make DIY Lace Votives
This is a really inexpensive project (it only cost me $3), with very few items.
Votives and vases (purchased at the dollar store)
Decoupage/Mod Podge (on hand)
Lace and netting (on hand)
Brush a little glue onto the vase or votive you’d like to place the lace on.
Once you cover the glass in glue, lay the lace down on top of it.
Let the lace and glue dry. Once the lace and glue are dry, add another coat of glue on top of the lace – don’t worry it will dry clear.
Once your votives are dry, go ahead and add any embellishments you’d like in addition. I added a lace flower that I made in about 30 seconds with a needle and thread to one of the small votives, but left the other two plain.
Add tea lights or candles and you’re done. Viola. DIY lace votives complete. I love a simple project!
One of my favorite things about these little lights are the fun patterns cast on the walls from the lace.
What sort of Halloween decor do you put out? Is it cute and kid friendly? Spooky? Glam?
