{dainty::romantic::rustic}{v-day decor}

here is a post i found online a few weeks ago. i tried it myself and it worked so beautifully!

doilies are dainty. candles are romantic. burlap is rustic. i've combined all of them to make these pretty luminaries that would be great for a romantic v-day meal or even as a wedding reception accent. play around with different ribbons, buttons, twine and burlap while experimenting with various doily designs as well.

i found my doilies at the thrift store for about $0.35 each. i tried paper doilies but they aren't as pretty and they are solid in the center, missing the lovely designs that real doilies possess. because i only had a few doilies on hand, i only put them on one side of the jar, however you could place them on both sides if you like. they look lovely on their own or with a lit tea light glowing inside.

Burlap and Doily Luminaries

glass jars

adhesive spray (like Elmer's Craft Bond)



twine, buttons, and/or ribbon


make sure your jars are clean and dry. spray the jar with adhesive spray.


place the doily onto the jar and position it, making sure it's not bunched up anywhere. press in place.


spray the rim with adhesive, then wrap the jar rim with burlap.

you can also wrap the rim with pretty ribbon then tie a piece of twine around the rim as well. tie them both in a bow. another option is to use the canning jar lid, then wrap that with twine or loose threads from your burlap. thread two of the ends through a button and tie in a knot.

enjoy!! source
