Battery Operated Tea Light

Ten Easy DIY Battery Operated Tea Light Projects

Just in time for holiday gift giving!

If you’re like me, and love giving and receiving handmade gifts, now is the time to start getting those creative juices flowing just in time for holiday gift-giving. Candleholders and lanterns are the perfect gift to say “Merry Christmas” and warm the homes of neighbors, teachers, friends, and coworkers. They make great hostess gifts for all those holiday parties and events. Most of these projects are very inexpensive, kid-friendly, and use recycled items and basic craft supplies. I prefer to use safe, mess-free, battery powered tea lights rather than wax candles when giving these as gifts. They’re a safer option for recipients with kids and pets (or that forgetful aunt that may very well burn her house down) and longer lasting.

We’ve compiled a list of easy DIY candleholders that are ideal for you and your kids or friends to get crafting and ready for gift-giving season.
