LED Tea Lights vs Votive Candles

Recommended Posts

Finished my LED tea light luminaries tonight! Thank you so much for the helpful ideas. Took a picture with my Blackberry. I wanted to take a picture with the tea lights all lit up but it didn't turn out so well. Here's the finished product.

It depends on the quality of the LED lights...I've seen some pretty bad ones reminiscent of the Christmas candles people put in their windows for Christmas...ummm yeah. I'm getting married in JA in Aprill and my WP says its the windiest month. But she guarantees that if the the votive holder is tall/deep enough, it will protect the flame from the wind...

Vellum is the thick, transparent paper you see in invitations. You can get different kinds of vellum in any scrapbook stores. I bought the LED tea lights from Dollar Tree then I cut the vellum in about 2.5 in. strips and wrapped them around the tea lights using a hot glue. I used a stamper to put the words WITH LOVE on the vellum.

I originally wanted to do glass candle votives and wrap them with vellum to be used as luminaries but then my WC did say that it was too windy and sometimes, tea light candles could not remain lit.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
