Tip of the week – Diwali S7

Standard

Candles are great when it comes to decoration, because they instantly set the mood. And they are inexpensive and suitable for any occasion.

For Diwali – festival of lights I want to customize and use them in every creative way. So, in my search I found really cool way to turn any glass/bowl into a beautiful candle holder.

Yes, and it works great. I got the candle floating wicks kit @ Hobby lobby for less than $2 😉 The kit has 3 reusable floats and a lot of wicks.

Fill the glass bowl with water and add food color.

Add vegetable oil making sure there aren’t any air bubbles. Use a spoon to avoid so.

Insert wick to the float and leave it carefully.

Use a wine glass, glass bowl or used candle containers and enjoy the beautiful and radiant flickers of these candles 🙂

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
