Save some rubbish from landfill with these easy upcycled Christmas tealight holders.

 

Easy Upcycled Christmas Tealight Holders

 

Christmas is almost here and it’s time to deck the halls. I tested three tealight holder ideas which are easy enough to do with the kids. These would make a great eco-friendly gift or advent calendar activity!

Dessert Dish Tealight Holder #1

 

This ceramic dessert dish lends itself really well to my metallic Sharpies. I added some simple Christmassy designs, some song lyrics and some “snowflakes” (read – stars in silver pen). Surprisingly, this was the easiest tealight holder to create – I did mine while listening to a Facebook live I was catching up on! If you make a mistake, you can always use a bit of nail varnish remover on a cotton bud. Be sure to check in an inconspicuous area first!

Dessert Dish Tealight Holder #2

 

I didn’t really need to do anything to this – the glass dessert pot looks festive enough as it is. Pair with more festive bits and bobs, or an old beaded garland in it like I did. This had the added bonus of using some old Christmas decorations I was tempted to throw away. I just put mine in loosely, but if you have more time to spend you could glue it on. This would make it look much neater than mine!

Snowglobe Tealight Holder

 

Take a clean glass jar (I used an old Nutella jar) and turn it upside down. Glue some cotton wool to the inside of the lid, making sure you can still do up the jar. Decorate the outside however you like – I tried gluing cotton wool around the edges and adding cotton wool snowflakes. The snowflakes weren’t as effective as I thought they would be, but the Sharpies came to the rescue again.
