Just remember to check that you still have these tealight boxes that you almost never use!
And take inspiration from these 5 ideas:
1. An upside down glass for a design candle holder
- Wine glasses
- Small objects to decorate (cinnamon sticks, holly branches, mini gifts, figurines, Christmas ornaments...)
How to proceed:
Flip your wine glasses over and place a tealight on top of each one.
Depending on the theme you choose, add a small decorative element in each of the glasses: a holly or fir or eucalyptus branch, a few cinnamon sticks, a Christmas ornament, a mini-cactus, a mini-gift, a wooden figurine ...
You have here beautiful glass candle holders that will bring height and magic to your table for Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve!
2. Kitchen salt for a snowy decor
To create the snowy landscapes of Christmas, fill a glass or jar with salt, and place a tealight candle out of its aluminum 'case', on top.
Add, if desired, some non-flammable decorative accessories. Your guests will love it!
3. A glass of champagne for a Scandinavian candlestick
What is wonderful about tealights is that they float! So, fill a few champagne flutes with water and put your candles in there, without their aluminum case.
For a "Wow!" effect, add a small fir, thyme or heather branch or a little Christmas decoration that does not float in the water.
If you have a glass salad bowl, you can fill it with water, add a few branches of holly and and add several floating candles: this is a perfect centerpiece for a natural Christmas.
4. Make a Christmas candlestick with a red apple
Do you want to keep all your glasses for your guests? No problem, use some apples!
Carve the center of the fruit and put the candles inside: in 2 minutes, you will have beautiful Christmas candlesticks. A perfect red ornament for a traditional Christmas.
5. Masking tape for personalized candles
If you have a roll of "masking tape" in a drawer, simply wrap some around the aluminum of your tealights and place them all over the house, on a small plate so that they do not burn anything. Easy as pie!
Keep these ideas for the holidays and you will have the most beautiful decoration!
