Decorative tea lights – Diwali craft

Here is another post for Diwali craft- Decorative tea lights.

I still haven’t bought any diyas yet (Diwali is just 5 days away, what am I doing?). I had these unused Tea light candles packet from last year which I was planning to use this Diwali.

Decorative Tea lights

And as luck would have it I saw this amazing post- Tea light with washi tape. The candles looked so cute and there was hardly any effort required (which always suits me). But there was just one problem.
I did not have washi tapes and I don’t think that they are sold in my area.
Now it seems that it was my lucky day bcoz I found another post with a tutorial to make washi tapes at home – with a double sided tape and tissue paper. Can’t get better than that.

We tried these with tissue paper


And craft sheets


or you can just stick a glitter tape on them


And then you can just hand them over to your kids to decorate them.

Adapted from:
 Tea lights with washi tape-

 How to make washi tape-

 Things required:

Tea light candles
double sided tape
tissue paper/craft sheets
glitter pens/ colors/ sketch pens to decorate

To make Decorative Tea lights

Stick double sided tape on craft paper or Tissue paper you want to use.

Cut along the edges of tape.

Take off the white paper

and stick to the tea light candle.
red candle

Decorate the candles.

So your tea lights are transferred from this

to these decorative tea lights
