Craft idea with a personal message or Christmas countdown

Recently I have you HERE and HERE Two beautiful Christmas lights were shown and the motifs were great for making DIY tea lights out of them. I used the glass from the IKEA JÄMLIK scented candle and made my tea light around it. It consists of two layers and if you twist the inner band out of tracing paper, either your own personal text or a Christmas countdown will appear in the star. The first version is a great “Christmas card” of a special kind, for example as a gift to parents from daycare children or students. There is also a simplified version of both motifs in my print file, which is easy to color without much gluing or cutting. I hope you have fun crafting!
