I have seen this in a few places but never thought to make it myself. The lace around the candle adds such an elegant touch, and it can be used in pretty much any setting. Simply choose your lace to match the theme. I think I will do this to make up my centerpiece for Christmas this year.

This is really adorable. I love the Victorian style. And this is also perfect for Halloween parties. The lace gave it more style and class. Very elegant.

These are so pretty, I might be a bit blind but I can't seem to find it, can these be done on wax candles or does it have to battery run candles? I would really love to try these out but I don't want to burn the house down in the process- they would be lovely at my sister in laws birthday dinner that we are having in a few weeks!

Gosh these look beautiful!!! This is a great idea for a great Gatsby themed party if you wanna impress your guests. I admit its very hard to burn these candles but you always make more of them everytime. They are great gifts and a wonderful way to spice up your valentine evening.

What a cute idea. I have a few of the flame less candles mainly because of grand children and a dog. Don't want anyone getting hurt or knocking them over and causing a fire. But they are all plain. This will certainly dress them up. They will look great on the mantel next to old pictures in Victorian style frames.

I don't think I've seen candles prettier than these. I wouldn't want to light these because they are too beautiful to see go. Good thing they are so easy to make!
