DIY Tea Tin Candles


I’m loving this colorful display of tea tin candles via Country Living. Simple but effective (not to mention eco-chic) as table decor or favors, don’t you think?   Click here for the tutorial.  For tea tins, I saw a colorful assortment at PearlRiver in NYC.  There’s also your local Asian supermarkets and of course, eBay to scour.  Happy hunting!

Just a quick note: The tutorial calls for wire-core wicks, and when you burn those, they have a tendency to release lead and other bad stuff into the air. Go for 100% cotton wicks instead, and tie them around the tie rods instead of wrapping them. It should have the same effect.
