    I am doing these as well.

    Just curious though, can you see the sand through the bag? I just don't want the sand to compete with the doily design on the bag...

          I think they'll be safe. I got some tea lights and am making my own as well. I picked up a a couple dozen of the small white bags at Michaels over the weekend. I think they were $2.99 a dozen. (they came pre-packaged)

                Hopefully there will be enough sand in the bottom to weigh them down.

                My plan is to get the small white bags and get a small doiley. Use some spray adhesive and spray on the doiley and glue it on the inside of the bag. I got a straight edge cutter that makes a lace design for the top edges of the bag.

                Put some sand in the bags and use tealight candles. I got teal colored tea lights to go with our wedding colors. Maybe the bags will have a slight teal glow.

                I'll post pics when they are done. I still have to find some small doileys first!

                  Has anyone found gold doilies in stores? I have only come across white.  I'd like to avoid shipping charges by going straight to the source:)

                    I finally found white bags. I know Michaels had them but they were like 3.99 for a dozen or so. Target has them for 1.89 for 40 of them.
