Valentine’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to break out your crafting supplies and get super creative. In my newest video tutorial, I am going to show you how you can make a cool “LOVE” lantern using four tea lights and some ordinary cardstock or cardboard.
This Valentine’s Day DIY project is not all that challenging, but it does require a slow, precise hand. So make sure you set aside enough time to work on it without rushing yourself.
In the list below, I share the materials and tools you are going to need to turn this project into a reality. I want to draw your attention to the tea lights which I mention. These can be electric or traditional tea lights. You will need a total of four of them.
The most important thing is that they are going to need to be in little containers if they will actually be traditional candles. You want some kind of barrier between the candle flames and the cardstock or construction paper you are using so that there will not be any risk of a fire. You can get around this completely by using LED tea lights since they should not generate heat.
Read on for the full list of materials and tools as well as the written instructions to accompany the video tutorial.
You now know how you can create a beautiful arrangement of tea lights which is perfect for Valentine’s Day. You can see why I suggested you set aside some extra time so that you can get the result you are aiming for. Drawing the letters and cutting them out neatly takes focus and attention to detail.
Once you have your lights ready, you can set them out on a table for a romantic dinner with some rose petals scattered around to create a lovely ambiance (don’t miss out on our Valentine’s Day recipe ideas). But these lights also would look nice sitting on a table, dresser, or so forth. Anywhere you are trying to create a romantic setting, they can add to the atmosphere.
While you are getting ready for Valentine’s Day, you’ll also need to think about a gift to get your loved one. That’s a great chance to get busy with more DIY projects, so check out these handcrafted Valentine’s Day gift ideas. With your DIY Valentine’s Day lights shedding a romantic glow, you’ll have the ideal setting for giving your loved one the perfect handmade romantic gift!
