Christmas tea lights - Make pretty paper Christmas tea-light holders - Christmas decorations to make - Craft -

You will need
● Jam jars
● Translucent white paper
● Ribbon or string
● Newspaper or wrapping paper scraps
● Tea lights

To make
Wrap a strip of translucent white paper (preferably with a snowflake design) around an old jam jar, securing with a length of ribbon or string.

Cut simple motifs like a heart or sprig of holly out of newspaper or scraps of wrapping paper and tuck behind the string, then place a tea light in the jar.

Group together to create a glowing table centrepiece or line up along a mantelpiece.

Remember, never leave a lighted candle unattended.
