Lace lamp/Doiliy Lamp – DIY. We are at our little cottage in Dalarna and we are fixing it up.

Lace lamp/Doiliy Lamp – DIY

So we are able to use it even in the winter. (Dalarna is in th middle/north of Sweden. To me and Jenny it’s north but Sweden is a very tall country so I guess we are not even in the middle). Anyway it’s great cause I have the time and space to do lots of DIY projects. Starting with this lamp. First we used a huge baloon that I bought at a party store. Then you collect all the old Dollys (?) Paint them with lots of wallpaper glue so they are soaked. Hang the ballon on a string and put the soaked lace on the baloon.

Then wait for a while. Pop the baloon when the glue is dry. Update 1:Some of you asked how to get the bulb into the shade. You mos def want to use a LED lamp or a energy saving bulb because it’s cold and it will not affect the glue either. I bought a nice looking iron wire in pink but when I opened the box it was red. Update 2: Problems making the lamp?! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.Good luck! Xxx Isabelle.


Glassware. Prettiness in a Jar. Let's face it, sometimes your wedding budget isn't going to be unlimited, you aren't the bride that walks into Kleinfelds and your family says give her whatever she wants a la Say Yes to The Dress.

Prettiness in a Jar

This is alright, because with a little Diy elbow grease you can can turn simple items into gorgeous personalized decorations. Today we are focusing on the mason jar. It can be hung, filled with flowers, lit up with candles, painted, wrapped in lace, the list is endless! Just to be clear this is a mason jar (they also come in blue and variety of sizes): Now, the fun part! Another option is using them strictly as candle holders, I found a couple options one as a major statement chandelier and another table simply filled with them. Lastly, the most common use would be as a vase, depending on the size your can fill them with a large variety of flowers or a single stem.

I hope your feeling inspired now! Xox. DIY Mason Jar Centerpieces: Floating Candles. Posted April 14, 2011 | 44 Comments This mason jar centerpiece is easy-to-DIY for your wedding!

DIY Mason Jar Centerpieces: Floating Candles

Adding candlelight creates a romantic atmosphere and these mason jars will add both a rustic and whimsical touch. First, you’ll need mason jars (you can buy them in bulk here for about $1 each) and fill with water. Next, tie a decorative ribbon (or raffia, as shown below) to the top of the jar in a bow. Place a floating candle (preferably long burning) in each jar and group approximately 3-4 jars together on each table.
