Cheap and cheerful, this DIY project is a spring-twist on our popular hurricane and tea light flameless candles. These tissue paper flowers, a popular craft on Pinterest, look even more adorable with our flameless candle centers.
The candlelight perfectly illuminates their soft, translucent petals and creates a whimsical ambiance perfect for summer BBQ decor or using as place card holders. Since they're flameless, they also make great and safe nightlights for girls 10+ who are too embarrassed to use a plug-in light.
These are very easy to make:
- Cut your petals and leaves out (as seen above) so they are all connected in the center.
- Layer the leaves and petals in a desirable way (try to make it look like a real flower, with no awkward gaps).
- Place the candle in the center and fasten clear, scotch tape in a ring around the base. This will hold all of the leaves and petals together in order to create the holder and make them angle upwards.
