DIY Flower Tea LightsPosted on Aug 23, 2014 7:32:41 AM by Dawn Barrett
Turn a basic battery operated tea light into beautiful spring flower that light up the night! These DIY Flower Tea Lights will add spring or fall decor to your home year round! All you need are fabric petals, spoons and Glue Dots.
Today, we have a quick and simple project with faux flower petals and tea lights. This project was inspired by Smart School House's original DIY Flameless Rose Tea Lights.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Glue Dots® Advanced Strength Dispenser or All Purpose Glue Dots®
- Faux silk flowers or petals
- 4 plastic spoons
- Battery powered tea light
Here’s what you do:
- First, cut apart your faux flowers. Cut the bottom edge of each petal into a curve.
- Use pliers to cut the handles off the plastic spoons.
- Using Advanced Strength Dispenser or All Purpose Glue Dots, adhere a petal onto the backs of each spoon.
- Place two Glue Dots on top of one another to form a thicker glue dot, and then adhere the spoons to the tea light. The extra Glue Dots help with the curve of the spoons. The spoons should be evenly spaced around the tea light.
- Adhere additional petals around the base of the tea light to form the flower. Fill any gaps. It will take about two more rows of petals.
Now, wasn’t that easy? I love the way they light up at night! You could even use fall colored petals for warm autumn home decor. :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
