    I think the moss would be cute or using fabric or lace to cover up the fake candles.

    I think it would look very rustic/cute to wrap them with moss. Then you’d get such a great glow effect when the candle is on! I voted for all the way up, but I think you can mess with it to see which looks best. Love what you have for you center pieces! This is something like I’m doing! I was just going to buy a bunch of tea lights tho.

    I was going to say lace as well – you can cut a strip of it and glue it on, it looks amazing.

    Craft stores sell spray paint that frosts glass. That could look nice.

    http://tipnut.com/decorative-votives/  I kind of like how they put it into a larger holder with flowers in it but maybe for yours you could put in some translucent pebbles, and I also like the lace ones a lot.  The DIY mercury glass would also look good with your set-up, I think.  Actually the DIY mercury glass is probably what I would do if I was you.

    There’s some stuff that you can use to etch glass to make it look frosted, I think.  I might try something like that.

    Most florists I’ve worked with use frosted glass or something else not transparent with the fake candles.  Maybe look into that stuff people use to etch glass and frost your glass holder things?  Or just buy frosted ones?

    I think lace would look great on them or possibly sponging paint on them to look slightly worn. I think you could do so much with them that you’ll hardly notice they are fake!

    I wouldn’t do the lace. We made a few lace candles and it was just more work than its worth, and the glue can get pretty messy (we used spray glue). I would just find a way to frost the glass.
