Here’s a quick and sweet idea from Mrs. Green Tea at Wedding Bee: Make covers for battery-operated tealights out of thread and fabric stiffener. I love how these look, and they are super simple! These are great for weddings, parties, or even to dress up your home, and the great thing is — they are safe! No fire hazard here! [click here for information on how to make these] [via]

Mix up the look of these by choosing different thread (or other similar material). I really like the organic look of this off-white thread, though!

Project Estimate:

  • Battery operated tealights, 2 for $1
  • Thread, $1
  • Fabric stiffener, on hand
  • Cardboard roll, on hand
  • Plastic wrap, on hand

Total: about $.50 each
