5 Minutes to a Creative Tea Light Candle Holder - With How-To Video

Here is a quick and easy way to create a gorgeous Tea Light Holder to enhance your table setting or to create a warm atmosphere on a centre piece. It takes less than 5 minutes to create and looks wonderful.
I use Gonis Decor Universal Paint colours, as these paints are universal, can be easily mixed with one another, and when I want to change my Tea-Light design, are easily removed. I have a small home, if I had to collect all the Tea-Light Holders that I decorate for each season, I would have to consider building an extension!

You will need:
A Clear, Glass Tea Light Holder (I am using Gonis Mini Windlichter)
Gonis Universal Colours (2 Different colours)
Gonis EisKristal (Glass crystals)
Using the Gonis Decor randomly cover the inside of your Tea-Light Holder.
Using the second colour, randomly make some squiggles in the Tea-Light Holder.
Use your finger and run it around the inside of the glass mixing the two colours slightly.
Sprinkle the inside of the Tea-Light with the glass crystals and swirl the holder around to cover all the surfaces.
Done :-)
Allow to dry and then place your tea-light candle into the holder and experience the wonder!

  1. Squee!!!
    I was honestly just about to toss a Marks & Spencer tealight holder today that totally disappointed me by losing its colour in the first round of dishwashing it encountered. Rip- off!
    Now I have an idea to salvage it- and even make it look a lot better than before.
    Thanks a million!
