DIY Doilie Candleholder

Such a romantic and beautiful doilie candle holder.

You will need:

Old crochet doilies
A balloon
Wallpaper glue
Soak the doilies in the glue, and stick them on the balloon. I used five doilies.
Let the doilies overlap a little bit.
Hang the balloon to dry. They need at least a day to dry.
When its dry you prick the balloon, and voila – you have a beautiful candle holder.
