Lola loves… Simple garden tea lights

These garden tea lights are such a simple idea and are so easy to make!


Simply wash the label off an old glass jar, tie string around the top of the jar and then tie each end of a long piece of string to that. Now you’ve made the handle.

Decorate with a strip if fabric tied round the jar and knotted.

I painted the lids with metal gloss paint so that they match and don’t have company brands all over them.

Pop a tea light in and fasten the lid (the lid makes sure the inside of the jar doesn’t fill with muck and rainwater). Then hang on a branch. Easy!
