Lots of tea light holders

These vellum candle shades are one of my all time favorite Cricut projects - very simple to do and so pretty.  You can read about how to make them at THIS POST.

Do you remember the candle holders I made for Halloween using the orange lids from Tropicana Orange juice bottles?

(Just click the photos to go to the original posts)

The orange color was perfect for Halloween and I collected some extras thinking that I could spray paint them for Christmas.

Well, here is some good news - if you buy the "orange juice beverage" that comes in this bottle it already has a red top - perfect for Christmas versions of the tea light holders.

I  have another idea for a way to use two of these bottle tops together - any guesses?

Today we will take a day trip to Toledo.  Everyone tells us it is a beautiful city with lots to see.  We will be trying out the marzipan candy that is made in all sorts of interesting tiny shapes - and yes, I will take photos!

(I am on a trip to see our son and daughter-in-law in Spain this week.  I wanted those of you on the email subscription to have something arrive each morning as usual, so I am sharing photos and short updates.  If I have internet access and time I will try to add some new photos from Spain when possible.  I have lots of crafty projects lined up to tackle when we get back, so stay tuned!).

  1. Such beautiful tea light candles and very clever using the juice caps.
    First and only thing that came to my mind by putting 2 together was to make it into a drum and use as tree ornament.

  2. Yummy, love marzipan! Glad you're having fun.
