Tea light decorations.

I will admit to being just a little bit of a tea light addict.    These tea light decorated with gold sharpie are quick and easy, but add instant glamour without the need to store or keep loads of tea light holders.

Mr PSGC has also complained that sometimes our house looks more like a crypt with all the candles I have burning.

Another of my addictions is mason jars – so these mason jars tea light decorations also got the gold treatment.

For both projects, I used a very fine liner oil based gold sharpie.

Gold sharpie to decorate tea lights

To get perfect circles, I coloured in various sizes of stickers with the pen.  When pealed off, they give a perfect circle.

I decorated around 20 tea lights, and 8 mason jars in around 20 minutes before a dinner party, using squiggles, arrows, dots, spots and chevron.   You could take more time and do detailed patterns or designs.


These make great outdoor displays for tea lights, or could be themes for a wedding with the bridge and grooms initials for reasonably priced bulk tea light usage.  Scattered around flat surfaces, or the mason jars can be strung with wire and hung from trees or fences.
