Washi Tape Tealight Candle Makeover11:24 AM
Spring is coming, and I am perpetually doing things on a budget, so I have been looking for ways to add Spring touches to my home without spending a fortune. Tealight candles can be purchased for about 20 for a dollar at the Dollar Tree, but they aren't very pretty or impressive. I scored some Washi tape on Christmas clearance at Target, even though very few of the patterns were actually Christmas related. I decided to take some of the more Spring looking Washi tape patterns and give my tealights a makeover. These Washi tape tealights are perfect for Spring and cost pennies to make!
Washi Tape in your choice of colors/patterns
Tea Light candles
Step 1: Gently wrap a length of Washi tape around the metal holder of a tea light candle to measure the length you will need.
Step 2: Cut the length of Washi tape, and then cut it in half down the center length wise if needed, so that there is no overhang on the candle base. Our Washi tape was too thick for the metal base of the tea light candles, so we cut it in half lengthwise so it would fit smoothly.
Step 3: Wrap the cut piece of Washi tape securely around the metal base of the tea light candle.
Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 to wrap as many tea light candles as you like. This is a simple and easy way to dress up those inexpensive tea light candles.
