Lacey Votive Candle Holders
I found this project while browsing Martha Stewart’s website and had to share! These Lacy Votive Holders would be a beautiful addition to any wedding table setting.

All you will need are…
  • Tea light or votive candles
  • Small Glass Votive Candle Holders (to keep the project safe!)
  • Rectangular pieces of lace – 5″ wide by 14-21″ long works well but practice with one first to decide on what size works best with your glass holder. The Martha site recommends guipure lace but says any medium to heavyweight lace will work. (Lace can be found in any fabric store and it can be dyed different colors to fit the theme of your wedding or left a clean white, depending on the look you are after!)
  • Balloons
  • Fabric Stiffener
  • Needle and thread(to match the lace)
  • Optional: Fabric Dye (if you are dying the lace), Glitter
Now the instructions..
  1. Cut lace into a rectangle shape. Sew across the bottom with a loose running stitch and connect the 2 ends. Pull the thread, gathering the bottom into a tight circle, and knot.
  2. Place a balloon inside the lace, and then blow it up to fit the lace’s dimensions. Set the balloon upright in a paper cup so the lace form is upside down. Arrange the gathered lace to create an even bottom. Spray with fabric stiffener until saturated. Let dry.
  3. Pop the balloon.
  4. Voila! Add some glitters or beads to it to fit your theme if desired.

Paper Hydrangea Pomander

This is so easy to make! I wish I had found this when I was planning my own wedding. I really would've used it for my dessert table especially I already have all the materials needed to create this beautiful pomander :)

Materials: pretty paper, Martha Stewart flower punch, styrofoam balls, and some pearl tipped corsage pins.
