Christmas 3 Trees Tealight

I designed and created a Christmas 3 Trees Tealight.
The 3 trees are made melting pony beads and a metal cookie cutter.
I left the trees sort of rough edged like they might be in the wild.
I hot glued the trees together to make them like a tent to set over a battery operated tealght candle.
I made a small red ball out of polymer clay for the top of the trees and painted it with clear glittery paint.
I made a base for the trees/tealight using the same method I made the trees.
I set a battery operated tealight on the base and set the tree tripod over it.0-all-tetrelghtI like the design pretty well. It’s different because depending on where you’re sitting determines which tree you see… unless you put it on a rotating base.tetrelght

Wishing you crafting fun this holiday season!

*just an extra note:
I fashioned a temporary rotating base out of an old music box to make the short video to show you each tree of the tealight lit and flickering.

Simple Balloon Light

bln-5I made a balloon light using A Balloon & a
Battery Operated Tea Light. It’s a simple thing to make.
One thing that’s important to do is cover up any little sharp legs.

Here’s wishing you a bright weekend of sunshine.

* A glow-stick would work nicely too.
There’s direction online for balloon lights made with glow-sticks.

Great Glowing Easter Eggs

egglight1As I was going through my old blog picture/files I came across the many different holders/displays I made for battery operated tealights.
I decided not to wait til Friday to post this Flashback because Easter is coming up and this might make a fun decorating idea for someone to use.

This is one of my more favorite ideas that I put together. I placed battery operated tea lights in plastic eggs. They’re such a fun inexpensive decoration.

My husband told me that I needed to drill a 1/16 inch hole in the plastic egg so the heat from the battery operated light can vent out.

So, if you decide to use this idea of putting battery operated tealights in plastic eggs, be sure to drill a hole in the eggs to help the heat vent out.

Be sure to keep an eye on the eggs and tealights in case they over heat and need to be turned off.

Here’s wishing you all a very bright
& cheery rest of the weekend.
