Establish a gentle ambiance with these centerpieces that glow like moonlight.

Antonis Achilleos

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.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

These are simply beautiful! I am making them for my own wedding and didn't find it necessary to brush them with stiffener. I'm now on the hunt for glass vases and candles on sale!!! Thanks, Martha, for the great idea.

PinkPartyGirl: Where did you find the lace paper?

I did this for votive glasses using both patterned vellum and glittered scrapbook paper. I put a piece of contrasting ribbon around it. You can also trim the top and bottom edges using Martha's "edge paper punches" (I used the butterfly punch) for a beautiful effect!!!
