Full Answer

Lace is a beautiful material that can be purchased at relatively low costs and used to decorate or embellish a wide variety of materials. Those who appreciate a more rustic look can use lace trim to dress up a Mason jar to serve as a candle votive. This simply requires a clean jar, a piece of lace trim, scissors, glue and a candle that can fit into the jar. More elaborate lace crafts may require more skill, time and money, but it is possible to use lace to make a shawl or wrap that can be worn around the shoulders in lightly chilly weather.
