Maritime Tea Light Candle Holders

These are just perfect for summer evenings at home or on the patio. The light is soft and atmospheric and the motifs remind you of a day at the ocean. These were made with die cut motifs but if you do not have a die cutting machine, look for solid colored stickers with similar motifs.



Maritime Tea Light Glasses by Day

For one glass you will need:

- straight glass such as a whiskey glass
- die cuts or stickers with motifs such as anchors, ship’s wheel, fish, lighthouses, etc... that will fit the glass (the die cuts here
  are from Sizzix e-clips cartridge “vacation” and were cut to different sizes depending on what was needed
- thin white rice paper or thin white mulberry paper with fibers
- dark blue cardstock
- decoupage glue of choice
- clear drying craft glue
- flat paint brush
- scissors
- ruler
- tea light
- Fiskars border punch with waves or similar border punch from another company

Maritime Tea Light Glasses Tutorial 2


1. First cut the rice/ mulberry paper so that it fits the height of the glass exactly and the circumference of the glass plus 1 centimeter in the length for overlapping the paper. For our glass we needed a piece that was 9.5 centimeters high x 25 centimeters wide in size. Then use the decoupage glue to adhere the white paper to the glass and set aside to dry.

2, In the meantime cut a 4.25 centimeters high x 25 centimeters wide blue card strip and use the border punch to create a waves motif along the entire top edge. Then adhere this border to the bottom of the glass.

3. Now die cut several sizes of the maritime motifs out or use stickers with such motifs. If using die cuts, glue these to the glass at random places. Brush glue then on the entire glass and cover the glass with the paper afterwards. Let glue dry thoroughly before using.
