DIY nut tealights

Nuts in the shell are a holiday classic.  But what do you do with those shells once the nuts have been removed?  Over at One O, Chiara turned a few shells into festive little tea lights!  Of course, as with any candles, don’t leave these burning unattended – especially since the bottoms of the nuts are rounded, so you’ll need to be careful about how they sit.  They make a great additon to a fall or winter centerpiece!  [how to make nut shell tealights]

Project estimate:

  • Nuts, on hand or $1 and up
  • Tea light candles, on hand or $1 and up
  • Candle wicking, about $2 and up

Total:  about $2 and up
