Agate Slice Tealights

Ever since this image of agate slice night lights from Anthropologie appeared in my Pinterest feed:


I have been slightly obsessed.

I knew I couldn’t afford to buy them, but I wondered if I could make similar tea light holders?

When I priced Agate slices, I decided I needed to think outside the box.

I returned to my favourite source, my recycling bin.

Milk cartons, 
And tuna tins!

Firstly, I resorted to my fallback, gold spray paint and painted the tins.


Then I got my sharpies out and drew some “agate slices”


Then I coloured them in.





Once my “slices” were done and the tins were dry, I used my hot glue gun to stick them together.


A quick and thrifty little craft that is also environmentally friendly!!!!


Perfect little night lights!
