Author: S. Roberts - ArticleCity.com
Anyone who enjoys candlelight will love these little tea-light candleholders. Quick and simple to make and very attractive.
To make a tea-light candleholder you will need...
Shallow jars. Knorr - 'Stir it up' cooking sauce jars are ideal for this. Make sure your jars are clean and dry.
Metallic spray paint.
No nails glue.
Spray paint your jars with a thin layer of metallic paint. Make sure that you read the back of the paint can before you begin. When using spray paint it is important to make sure that you use it in a well-ventilated room and that you are not near any naked flames.
Paint the outside and the inside of the jars and then leave them somewhere to dry. You may wish to apply two coats of paint for good coverage.
Use 'No Nails' glue to stick on glass stones evenly around the outside of the jar. Be careful not to use too much glue because if it does splurge out onto the jar it will spoil the candle holders appearance. No nails glue dries white.
Once the glue dries your ready to put the tea-light candle inside.
You could use other things to decorate your candleholder. Glue on pasta shells or string before spray painting. Try substituting glass stones for seashells, sequins or buttons. Do make sure that any decoration that you apply is on the lower part of the jar. Never allow anything to cross the top of the jar because this would be a fire hazard.
Let your imagination go wild and create some beautiful tea-light candleholders for your friends and family this Christmas.
