Vintage Lace Tealight Holder

 It's time once again for The Sustainable Pinterest Challenge, a group of bloggers who are challenged to recreate a pin from Pinterest focused on sustainability. Many thanks to Julie from Sum of Their Stories & Gail from Purple Hues and Me for hosting.  This month we are sharing something 'From the Kitchen'.

My inspiration came from this pin, but I wanted to use real lace. Not a problem when you have a little stash of it tucked away in the closet! 
It all started with a glass yogurt jar, Mod Podge, embellishing glue, vintage lace, flower trim, and some old jewelry.
Some Mod Podge was applied to the clean jar with a foam brush.
The netting (that was with the lace) was applied first and allowed to dry.
Another layer of Mod Podge was brushed on and the vintage lace was applied over the netting.
I just love the detail in this piece of lace!

The flower trim was added around the top edge.
Time to add a little 'glam'.  This earring was in the bag of jewelry and attached with embellishment glue.

The project was done except for the addition of a battery-operated tealight.

It gives off such a warm glow on a winter night!

I hope you'll pin, share, comment, and follow.  If you click on those 3 little lines at the top left of the blog (on the Home page), you'll see where to find me...or click on the icon below to share.

  2. That's so pretty, I love that lace and the flower trim and jewel thing (technical name!) finish it off perfectly. Those little yogurt jars are just so useful for craft project aren't they?

  3. Your lace tealight holder is so adorable, Ann! I bet you love seeing the wonderful glow and design when lit! Perfect for cold winter nights! Aren't those yogurt jars the best! I have several bags full of them. I love the Qui yogurt and can't seem to throw away the jars when I finish eating the yogurt!

  8. Beautiful! I love how the lace looks with the tealight glowing! It would be great for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner! I did not know they had special embellishment glue. I will be on the lookout for that.

  14. The up-cycled and embellished jar/tea -light holder is perfectly charming. Adding the netting as an under-layer for the lace was the perfect step. Then, the vintage earring really sets it off. (I love Mod Podge!)
