Create tea lights

Leah Gage

Do-it-yourself wedding decorations help couples save money and stick to the budget. These decorative themed tea lights are one example of a cheap, easy decoration that can be made at home.


  • Tea lights, as many or as few as needed
  • Thin decorative tape
  • Scissors

Step 1: Measure around the circumference of the tea light

The easiest way to do this is to take a string and wrap it around the candle.

Step 2: Mark off the length and then lay it out on a ruler to get the exact length of the piece of tape needed.

Step 3: Cut the desired length of tape.

Step 4: Stick one end of the tape, sticky side down, to the side of the candle and begin to slowly wrap it around the tea light, keeping it even with edge of the tea light and removing any bubbles along the way.

Repeat for as many tea lights needed.
