Since the dark nights have been drawing in I've been burning a lot more candles around my flat. I love candles and always have a supply of various kinds knocking about the place - church candles, scented candles, bog standard house candles and of course tea-lights. Tea lights are great because you can put them almost anywhere... they look great in jars and other glassware, on pretty plates, they're okay on their own too - but recently I've been decorating them with washi tape just to make them that bit prettier.
It's so easy, and here's how I did it...
2. Washi Tape
That's it! Simple. I chose to stick to a polka-dot theme, just because I love polka-dots.
Wrap the washi tape around your tea-light. Depending on the size of your tea-light, you may need to fold the tape underneath the candle (I did).
Tear off the strip and voila! A lovely set of patterned tea-lights. I will be doing this all the time now, and it also gives me an excuse to extend my washi tape collection ;)
If you're interested, I sell a set of yellow and polka-dot washi tapes in my shop - you can buy them here.
Ahh, these dark nights are not so bad after all.
