You can use superglue, Krylon Spray Adhesive, or glue the lace to itself.

 Measure how long a strip of lace you need to go around the votive holder with a bit extra for a folded edge.

I’ve been using glue dots to stick them onto my glass votive holders. I put two dots on the first edge, one dot halfway through, and then one or two dots on the bit of overlapping seam. It’s been fine when I’ve used my tester one and I’ve gone through two candles nearly 🙂

We used some very adhesive bonding glue from Michael’s and it worked like a charm 🙂 Double sided tape worked for like 10 minutes or so because it started coming off.

I have read a lot of stuff from Martha Stewart about attaching wraps.

She has you cut the wrap about 1″ long.  Fold under 1/2″ on the finished side to show and tape to be hidden or you could hem it, wrap the wrap around and tape again where the overlap occurs.

She has better directions on her website, with pictures.  Check it out!

I found this picture on one of my favourite flower blogs and in the comments the florist said that the bride was having the same problem you were and her answer was clear nail polish…they came out looking great so maybe you could give it a shot?
