DIY: Wired Tea Light Holders

We love the simple decorative effect of tea lights. With just a few twists, you can make your own wire holders similar to these we spotted on the Swedish blog Calinas.

Above: Sculptural DIY holders add instant glow to outdoor summer dining.

Above: Plastic-Coated Black Wire is $4.68 for a 9-foot roll; the Stanley Long Nose Plier is $9.18.

Above:†Use the pliers to easily twist and shape the wire.

Above: The slow, smokeless flame of these all natural beeswax candles give off more light; package of six for $10.00.

Remember to keep the flame safely away from anything flammable.
