Summer is here!! With the current heatwave taking over England we’re inspired to create pretty things for the garden. This tealight holder is so simple and can be created using things you may already have in your home. You could also add other things to it such as shells or even a few succulents.
You will need:
- glue gun
- 2m twine
- glass jar (we used an empty white company candle jar)
Step 1: Start by adding the hot glue to the glass. Then take the end of the twine and start placing it down onto the sticky glass (the glue will cool fairly quickly so wait until it’s gone to that tacky stage and then you can press it down without burning your fingers!). If I had any gaps I just kept gluing and wrapping the twine until the base was covered (about 1 inch high).
Step 2: Once the glue has dried and your twine is all stuck down fill your holder about 2 inches deep with sand. Then place your tealights and any other decorations into the holder.
This is so simple but really effective. These would also look beautiful as table centerpieces for a nautical themed wedding!
Happy crafting 🙂
