Christmas Crown Tealight Holders ~Bostik Challenge


It is less than 7 weeks to Christmas and by now we should have all started our Christmas preparations in reality. There is so much to do, Christmas lists to make, menus to plan, guest lists to sort out and presents to wrap , tree and  table decorations to choose and make too.

As long as I can remember I have always encouraged my children to be part in all the planning, one aspect that we all loved doing when they were younger is making our own decorations and table settings. I really miss doing this as both my girls are grown up now. However I now have my crafting buddy Miss M to restart this tradition. This month our Bostik Box theme was Christmas so Little M and I made these pretty crown tea light holders for the Christmas table.

To make the crown tealight holders you will need:


1 a4 sheet of glitter card
1 a4  sheet gold card
2 tealights with batteries
1 star punch cutter
Bostik Glue
Pencil
Scissors

How to Make.

1. Measure and draw a rectangle 15 cm x 3 cm on the reverse of the green glitter card.
2. On the top long top edge draw a scalloped edge.
3. Cut the card out, if you have a star punch cut our starts along the cardboard strip using it. If you don't you can draw stars and cut them out free hand.



4. Wrap the strip around the tealight loosely and secure the edges with glue so that it form a tube around the tea light.
4. Using a top of a jar lid that is slightly bigger than your tea light draw around circle on the gold card and cut it out.
5. Stick the prepared tube shape onto the gold card and leave to dry.


6. Once dry, place your tealight inside the holder and put it on.
7. Repeat for as many tealight holders that you require.


This craft is suitable for young children although, adult supervision may be required for using scissors.

  15. Your post brings together my two favorite things to have at Christmas time. Children and candlelight. I often think also that decorating doesn't have to be expensive to be beautiful, and these fit the bill in every way. x

  19. You've reminded me how worryingly close to Christmas it is. Yikes. And here was me grumbling at Christmas ads on the TV. I only worry, because the husband and I are in the middle of some pretty big home improvements, and time is ticking.

    So seeing your adorable Christmas decorations is just wonderful, and you've put a little light (pun intended) in to my Grinch like soul. I love them. So easy to make, and so sweet. Lovely to have on the mantle above the fire, or on the dining table come Christmas dinner.
