Ivy Bowl Candle Lamp

Sometimes the simplest ideas are best - and this pretty little candle lamp is so simple to make! Wouldn't this be nice to give to anyone for birthday's or other specail occasions or to make as a homemade Christmas gift?
What you will need:

Two glass fluted ivy bowls (I bought mine at 77 cents each)

1 yard very wide gathered lace (3-1/2inches wide)

1 yard small width of gathered lace (1/2 inch wide)

Needle and thread


Your choice of ribbon

Votive candle

Candle cup (optional)


Fill the bottom ivy bowl with potpourri.

With the second ivy bowl, take the wide gathered lace and glue a hem at both ends. I used hot glue for quick results. Then run a basting stitch through to the other end. Don't knot off. Lay the lace around the neck of the ivy bowl and pull the thread until it is gathered to the other end, adjusting around so you have nice even ruffles and knot off to the other end. You can also stitch down the two ends.

Now with your 1/2 inch lace, go around the neck again, covering the the top of the 3-1/2 inch lace and glue to the other end. Take some thin ribbon to match your potpourri and cover the the top raw edge around the 1/2 inch lace and glue to the other end. Make enough bows for each ruffle on your fabric lamp shade. Insert your candle cup and candle and place on top of the ivy bowl with the potpourri. The fluted edges of the ivy bowls allow the scent of the potpourri to come out. Now you have a beautiful small lamp, that should only cost about $4. Enjoy !

RIP Donna-Marie
You will be truly missed.
