Dazzling Christmas Lace (Mylar)

Lace and Mylar make amazingly sparkly and beautiful Christmas decorations! The Mylar shimmers, creating a light-filled effect against the delicate lace. You can find Mylar sold as gift wrap at craft and party stores (sometimes called "foil tissue"). It's the same material that makes up foil balloons -- you can cut those up and use them for the embroidery, too!

An angel's lace wings unfold behind her glittering robe, and a lace candle flame and holly surround a bright candle holder. Click here for Kenny's project instructions on working with Mylar and lace in these designs.
