In the meantime I received a box of trim from Decorative Trimmings for this month's Designer Crafts Connection blog hop. Designers love to play with new product and I am no exception. Unfortunately I received white lace trim in my goodie box - I needed black to lengthen my dress, but at least I now know where to get some!
Spring is wedding season and nothing says "wedding" like lace, so I pulled some additional supplies together and set to work.
Weddings + lace + candlelight = romance, so I pulled out some tall and short LED candles and simply wrapped them with the lace. There was additional narrow trim in my goodie box, so I wrapped that around the top edge of the lace on the tall candle, added a bow and a flower and voilà, a quick'n EZ candle decoration fit for the church and/or wedding reception.
I wanted to do something a little different with the shorter candle, so I added the narrow trim around the neck of a glass container I found at the dollar store then placed the shorter candle inside.
Outdoor weddings are also popular this time of year and I've noticed a lot of burlap being used for that "country feel", so here are some additional ideas using the same lace and trim.
I covered a rectangular shaped glass container with burlap then added the lace and the trim along the top edge of the lace. The table number is also burlap, decorated with the trim (and a little lace brad at each corner that I found in my stash of stuff). I attached the burlap to a piece of acrylic (from an old frame I think) with double sided tape and the iron on number at the center with glue dots; (quicker than getting my iron out). This was then glued to a bamboo skewer and placed between the flowers. You could also prop it up against the container.
There are lots more ideas to look at. Use the blue, DCC logo in my sidebar to hop thru the webring to see them all, then don't forget to check out our post on the DCC Blog. Enjoy! Y'all come back now....
KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON CRAFTING!
