– Paper towel and/or toilet paper rolls

– Hot glue

– LED tea lights

– String / fishing wire

– White paper

– Tub (for paint)

– Scissors

1. Cut the tube down to size, consider having varying heights of candles.

2. Paint the tubes white, let dry.

3. Once dry, drip hot glue around one of the open ends of the tube, to look like melting candle wax. Dip the glue end in a tub of white paint and let the paint drip down below the hot glue drips.

4. Poke a hole on opposite sides of the top of the tube, about one inch below the top and thread fishing wire through. Tie ends in a knot in the desired length. Rest LED light on the thread, and hang up!
