Tea Light Craft Tips and Tricks

While this project is fairly straightforward, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind.

  • If you’re using one of the tea lights you have at home, check that the battery still works before you start to paint. You don’t want to go through the whole process only to find out that the flame doesn’t light.
  • Once you let the first layer of paint dry, if you can still see parts of the candle, just add another coat. You can paint as many layers as you need to get the color you want.

Overall, this is a simple project. That’s why it’s a perfect activity for families to do together.
