DIY Doilie Candleholder for the tablescape


The choice of table setting creates a different mood whether it be simple, special or to fit with whatever occasion you have planned. I will give you instructions on how to make a doilie candle holder for a perfect tablescape that you can use during ordinary days and other more intimate occasions too.

Things you need :

Old crochet doilies (or you can make your own crochet doilies)

A balloon

Wallpaper glue

A tin candle

A nylon string

A needle


Steps to follow :

Step 1 : Prepare all the materials needed.

Step 2 : Inflate the balloon depending on the size you desire.

Step 3 : Soak the crochet doilies in the wallpaper glue. Make sure it is soaked well. ( You can use old crochet doilies in your house, you can make your own crochet doilies to make it more personalized, and if you are not into crocheting things, you can always buy from the store. )

Step 4 : Once doilies are soaked well in the wallpaper glue, carefully stick them on the upper part of the balloon.

Step 5 : Stick as many doilies as you want and you can overlap while sticking them but be sure that it will fit the size of half of the balloon. ( By the way, I used five doilies. )

Step 6 : Tie the nylon string to the knotted bottom part of the balloon and hang it somewhere to dry. You will need at least a day to make it completely dry.

Step 7 :  Once it is completely dry, use the needle to prick the balloon and gently pull it away from the doilies and voila, your candle holder is done. You can now use it for your tablescape.
