Succulent Inspired Paper Tea Light

Succulents are so gorgeous and I love having them around. So for today’s monthly creative blog hop, I thought, why not make a succulent inspired paper tea light! We are all showing you a paper post this time and so making a cute tea light with paper felt like a fun idea. And who doesn’t like a little succulent light lit up on a warm summer’s night??

paper coffee filter

green water colors

white glue

paint brush


small glass or jar

tea light candle

adhesive lace ribbon


1. Paint the coffee filter with your water colors on both sides. For this tea light I painted three filters on both sides. Set aside and let dry.

2. Cut out oval shapes in different sizes.

3. Grab the jar or glass you will use for the tea light and add glue to the top part.

4. Start adding the smallest ovals all around the top.

5. Do the same as in step 4 except a layer lower, underneath and in between the first ovals until the whole jar is covered.

6. Add the adhesive lace ribbon to the bottom.

7. Add your candle light.

8. Fold the top of the ovals in shape and done!

    Katrin that is such a pretty and inspired idea. I never would have thought to use the paper like that. And the color you chose is perfect. It creates such a nice atmosphere with the tealight.

      Thank you Mary. I don’t really use coffee filters anymore, but found these the other day in my kitchen, and am glad I could use them up!
