Painting Tea Lights

There are times when I’m putting a tablescape together, and I can’t find the color tea lights that I need.

It’s something that drives me absolutely nuts.  I always have candles on my table.  I love what the candle light does to the ‘feeling’ of a table.  But I can’t handle plain white when I need color!  Since I already paint candles to match my color scheme, I figured I’d try it with some tea lights.  It worked beautifully!

Here are some that I did to go with my Mardi Gras Tablescape.

It was never to brag about what I have or what I can do.  My blog is about showing you what you can do.
