Candle holder from glass jar and doilies

Today I'll show you how to make a beautiful candle holder from glass jar and crochet doilies. It needs a minimum of time and materials as you can see. And this is another way to use crocheted doilies.

You will need:
- Glass Jar (I took one from yogurt)
- 2-3 small crochet doilies 
- Ribbon, cord - everything you prefer to decorate the jar's top
- Glue in spray (you can use also not in spray, but it's more convenient and easier to use)

So, let's begin.
Lay the paper on a work surface and place the doily, face down. Apply the glue uniformly on the doily.


Take doily with care and attach it to the jar, stretching to avoid folds and positioning pattern uniformly. I used two bigger doilies and two smaller cuted out from an old tablecloth.

You can attach doilies as you like - covering all jar, or just one part, or use a rectangular doily and glue it on the bottom of the jar.

Attached all doilies, we have to decorate the top of the jar. I used the organza ribbon, but you can decorate with any ribbon or cord so on.

Tie a bow, put a candle inside and enjoy a romantic evening!
