Simple Lace Votives

Not every project has to be (or can be) monumental. Sure, we all love big room makeovers and furniture before & afters, but we also have lives! Lives that only allow for a few extra hours to spend on projects (if we’re lucky). Today’s post is a simple and sweet project that you can do in those precious minutes between life’s responsibilities and collapsing in to bed each night.


I was so smitten with the black lace votives from our Halloween Mantel, that I made a lighter version for Valentine’s Day. All you need is a scrap of lace trim, glass votive and ribbon.


I attached the lace to the glass with a small piece of double-stick tape (I don’t want these permanent), then tied it with some bakers twine.


Sweet, fast, cheap and easy! That seems to be a recurring theme around here lately!

    I just discovered your blog today and have been pouring over it–it's such a breath of fresh air and full of new ideas that I haven't seen before. I must admit–I've already borrowed one of your ideas and am loving the results!
    Also, I'm extra excited because I noticed that you were featured in an article in the Dallas paper and I saw that you're from Plano. We are moving to the Plano area in the next few months. In fact, my husband is already there with a new job.
    Thanks for sharing–can't wait to read future posts!
