I am going to be having votive candles and really like this look. What do you think they used to wrap around the candle? Lace or paper? Or something else?
And if it’s paper? How do I go about making it?

Check out this blog post by Miss Paisley using eyelet fabric. I tried it myself & it’s very simple… and beautiful! No matter what you use, a good spray adhesive will work wonders.

This is so cute. Wonder how is done too…

I’m pretty sure Martha had a paper template. Try searching her website.

I think Martha did it with vellum and I’m pretty sure I saw it on her website.

oh thats definitely paper, and i was gonna suggest a martha solution too: lace edge paper punches.
she has a ton of pretty ones that you would use to make the edges, and then maybe get a couple flower shaped ones to fill in the middle. these are very pretty! it’ll take alot of work tho if you want to use these on all the tables, cuz assume you need 10 per table times however many tables… its alot! but if you wanna put in that kind of effort go ahead! you’ll also have to have really good craftsmanship to make sure the paper is perfectly lined up and doesn’t rip or anything like that… because things like that will make it look sloppy really easily. also using actual eyelet fabric would be pretty too and less work because the pretty eyelet pattern is already there for you 🙂 good luck and happy crafting!

You could try to use doilies and cut them to fit around the votives. That might work…

I agree with YSQuenn. I was going to say the same thing.

For the Martha Lace Edge Punch, to get the same effect that you have that in picture, you would punch both sides of the paper (a thinner strip so the design butts up against each other). I seems that would be the easiest (and cheapest) way, since you would invest in the punch and can use some computer paper, since thicker paper will too be thick to let the light through.

I will have to think about this….
I wonder what would be less expensive paper or fabric? Although the paper might be more work if I have to whole punch the lace first.
I will look into fabric costs first.
Thanks girls for the help!

Looks like paper. I made some with paper lace from AC Moore. I simply cut it to pit and used a few hot glue drops to attach. Easy!
These are Dollar Tree votives that are larger than normal. I wanted the edges to sit higher than the rim, and used tealights inside.
