News Candles

We have a daily newspaper which causes a lot of old paper for kids projects (paper mache, painting  underlay etc.). But now I’ve found a use for it…

@ Mrs. Twinkle

a tea light
an old newspaper
a black marker
adhesive foil

All you have to do is draw or write something with the black marker on the newspaper. Cut it out and apply the adhesive foil and cut out with a boundary of  about 5mm. Stick on to your tea light and you have a personalized “News Candle”.

After making mine I popped down to my friend Urs’s (my local florist, and brought a little spring herald home to add to my decorations.


  1. It seems you want ‘news’ of Spring! I can’t blame you, but there’s bound to be lots more snow and ice before the pretty flowers outside bloom. Makes it a great time to be inventive, and you certainly are.
