Old Doilies and Vases Make Candleholders

This idea has recently been shared in Flea Market Style and I know I've seen it other places. Here is my spin on it.

  2. That is so inspiring. I just got some crochet lace from my grandmother that her grandmother made. This is a great idea. I might just do this. Hope you had an amazing Mother's Day!!!

  6. Melissa! I am in awe of your craftiness -- and the amount of it! Everything is so fun and lovely, but I think the fishing tackle necklace and these doily candle holders are my favorites. Both have an airy, delicate feel. I like that.

    Hope you and yours had a wonderful Mother's Day. Hugs to you!

  16. Those are so pretty-
    would be great as center pieces for a party, or as a gift for a bride, graduate,housewarming... I bet you could make this pretty easy from Dollar store finds too... I see doilies for cheap there...
    I love the one with the buttons.
