Summer Tea Lights

These tea lights look stunning and add the most beautiful touch to any table. They couldn’t be simpler and my kids absolutely loved making them. At home they are stunning. As a gift, they’re simple to package. If you live near the beach, it makes the perfect gift to send to relatives and friends. Collect the shells, perhaps taking a few photos of the family at the beach. Pop the instructions in with the package and the gift is complete.

What You Will Need:

  • One small Glass or Jar
  • Water
  • Variety of seashells
  • Floating candle


Step 1:Drop some shells into a glass. Begin with the smallest shells and top with the larger ones.

Step 2: Pour some water into your glass until the water reaches approximately 1.5cm from the top.

Step 3: Straighten the wick of your floating candle and gently place in the water.

Step 4: Light your candle.
