Enchanting for an evening reception, these votives are made with clear glass cylinders (we used several sizes), white lace, and white candles. To determine how much lace you'll need for each, measure height and circumference of vase. Before cutting, brush lace with fabric stiffener (available at crafts and fabric stores) so that it won't fray; let dry. Cut, allowing 1/2 inch for seam. For the top edge, follow the floral or decorative pattern as you cut. Wrap lace around vase, and use a hot-glue gun to secure the ends.
