DIY Tealight Houses


This simple diy from Fellow Fellow employs an old idea to create a romantic "candlelit" town. Isn't the top photo gorgeous? The best thing about this diy is that you can use virtually any photo. It's fun to experiment with different types of images to get different effects. Just make sure to use a battery-operated tealight candle (obviously, mixing open flames with paper is never a good idea).

Thanks to Harriet for the link!

  8. Ooooh! I saw this around somewhere, and have been thinking about them ever since! :)
    It would be nice to make them with photos from a trip, as a memento... As you say, the possibilities are just too vast!

  9. So glad you liked the link, it is such a great idea isn't it? Too bad I'm rubbish at this sort of thing and would probably mess up the cutting out though!
