Hi friends! My name is danni from oh, hello friend. I actually had the opportunity to meet ellie at alt summit in salt lake city and she is just the sweetest – I was really excited when she asked if I wanted to do a Valentine diy. I was lighting some tealight candles the other night and thought about this fun + quick inexpensive gift using general craft items you may already have around the house.
Lace tealight: a quick + easy valentine gift.
- Clear votive holders (michaels: $1)
- Tealight candles
- Modge Podge
- Brush for glue
- Lace doilies
- Small box of matches
- Various sheets of patterned paper
- Printable PDF tags
2) Modgepodge lace doily over paper on votive holder.
3) Cut a small piece of paper that will wrap around the matchbox. Use modgepodge glue to wrap the matchbox.
An alternative idea is to build your own slightly-larger matchbox that fits the candle inside it, sort of like a little kit :) Use this pdf
template to build a larger 3″ x .75″ matchbox. Inside, I placed the candle and wrapped five or six matches with baker’s twine, but you can include whatever other little surprises in your matchbox! I decorated with paper lace and fabric butterfies (martha stewart: michaels)
