Black Lace Candles

About a year ago, I was determined to have ivory lace votives for our wedding decor, they were super simple to make and looked elegant.  Since then, I have always wanted to wrap lace around taller candle holders, but never really got around to it.  I was at the Dollar Store recently, and came across some tall candle holders that would be perfect to wrap in black lace for some Halloween Decor! 

I simply used an old pair of lace leggings (not sure why I ever owned these, ahhh!) and slipped the candle holder down the leg and cut at the bottom.  The great thing about using old leggings is that you don't even have to use spray adhesive, the leggings fit perfectly tight around the glass candle holder.  Voila!
