How to... Make tea light holders using glass ramekins from Gü desserts and lace

I don't know about you but I love Gü desserts (the cheesecakes are my favourite!), but what do you do with the glass ramekins the desserts come in? Here is the answer! Using scraps of lace and Mod Podge you can turn them into pretty tea light holders. A great excuse to treat yourself to a dessert I'd say!  

1) You will need

Scraps of thin lace, Mod Podge (I used the Matte Mod Podge), a paintbrush, scissors and glass ramekins or shallow glass jars

Note on Mod Podge- It's great stuff!  A pot lasts a long time and it has so many crafty uses, check out these Mod PodgeYouTube inspirations

2) Cut your lace into roughly inch sized pieces

3) Working from the top down and working on small sections at a time, apply a layer of Mod Podge to your ramekin and then lay a piece of lace over the top

4) Paint another coating of Mod Podge over the top of each piece of lace and allow to dry completely

5) Add your tealights and they're done! I've added a bow in garden twine for a rustic look. 

These would be pretty arranged in small groups for decoration and candle- lit atmosphere at an evening BBQ, garden party, wedding or cosy evening in

You could also use this technique with glass jars to make pretty vases or storage containers

Happy making!
