CELEBRATIONS: Faux Vintage Lace Napkin Rings

Faux Vintage Lace Napkin Rings via homework | carolynshomework.comI mentioned last week that this year, I’m not hosting Thanksgiving at my house (fist bumps everyone)! But when I do have large gatherings, I like to use napkin rings even if I’m not going to use cloth napkins.

Have you ever decoupaged? Decoupaging has been around for a long time. It’s a fun, versatile craft that just got even better. Martha Stewart has introduced a new line of decoupage products that are amazing. Think fabric paper, lace and trims. The possibilities are endless! Want to decoupage a plate? The formulas are dishwasher safe. Decorating a tote bag? There’s an oil cloth formula that will make your tote bag super durable.

Upcycling: lace water bottle


I was inspired to make this lace vase after seeing Decoupaging with Lace on Urban Comfort. For my version, I used a very tall bottle that some fancy water came in. This is actually a double upcycle project because the lace I used was an old curtain valance.


To make a lace bottle you can wrap the entire bottle in the lace or use strips of the lace depending on how you want your finished product to look. Apply Mod Podge to your bottle and wrap the fabric around the bottle. 


The length of the valance fit the bottle almost perfectly and I was able to use the lacy edge at the top of the bottle. Since the neck of the bottle is narrower, I cut the slits in the fabric and layered the slits around the neck.


Once the fabric is completely dry, add another coat of Mod Podge over the fabric. 


Add flowers and enjoy your delicate lace vase.


I think these would work perfectly as budget-friendly wedding centerpieces. So if you’re planning a wedding, start saving glass bottles and be on the hunt for lace remnants.



Thanks for visiting.
