Today's project is for the romantic at heart.
Candle light is one of the most important ingredients of a romantic Valentine's dinner for two
and what could be more appropriate than a heart of tealights. You can make
this simple "heart wreath" in no time at all and all you need is a hot
glue gun and some tea lights. I suggest you make this project on a
sturdy surface that you can transport easily to the dinner table as the
hot glue is not very strong.
I've used a combination of 20 unscented Glimma tealights in red and scented Tindra tealights in shades of ink from Ikea. Just lay the tealights out in a heart shape and play with the colour arrangement until you are happy.
Take a sheet of paper larger than the heart and press it down over the top so that it leaves an outline of each tealight. Place the paper on a firm, portable surface and move each of the tealights into its position on the paper. Glue each tealight to the one next to it.
Gently remove the paper out from under the tealights. Transport your tealight heart to the dining table and carefully slide out your firm work surface.
In a dimly lit room, the flickering light and beautiful aroma from these tealights will give your dinner table a wonderful soft glow and set the mood for a very romantic evening. Happy Valentine's Day!
'Til next time....
