Step 1:

Measure your burlap to fit your candle holder by laying out the burlap on the table and wrapping it around the candle holder.  Cut the burlap to size.  Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect because for this particular candle, we are going for the vintage look.   Repeat this step for your lace.

Step 2:

Take the burlap and wrap it around the candle holder and using your hot glue gun dab a little glue at the top and at the bottom of the burlap just to close it off and to keep it nice and tight.

Step 3:

Take the lace and wrap it over the burlap and adhere it using the hot glue gun, but this time put little dollops of glue all the way around.  (The glue will seep through onto the burlap, this is a good thing, it will help to secure everything in place!)

Step 4:

Add your decorative embellishment to the seem, again this will just make the burlap and lace more secure.

Step 5:

Add your candle and enjoy!
