I'm sure you've seen them all over Pinterest! They're everywhere- as they should be!
Last week I went down to the States and a major part of that trip was to check out JoAnn's. I keep hearing good things about this store and the one thing I knew I wanted was their Paper Mache Letters. I also wanted to check out their lace and I was delighted to find out it was a) super cheap! and b) on sale! I got two different types of lace which I'm using to cover candle holders for the wedding centerpieces.
I got 4 yards of lace and 2 paper mache letters for about $20.
The centerpiece will be a collection of different sized candle holders, all covered in lace. To give this a try, I used a little tea light candle holder from Michaels.
Since the holder is quite shapely, I used the lace on the left because it's softer and not as stiff as the one on the right.
Measure (or eyeball) how much lace you need. With a sponge brush apply mod podge to the holder then apply the lace. Warning- It's going to get sticky! Then brush on another layer of mod podge on top of the lace.
Let it dry completely and then use an x-acto knife to trim any edges (if needed).
***For the plastic cup holders, PLEASE use battery operated tea light candles!!
The plastic holders are an inexpensive alternative that I'm going to mix into the glass collection. Hopefully no one will notice the difference!
I'll share again once I have the mock up completed!
In the meantime... Grace, Ivanka, Kate: who's your favourite?
