The project from today is very small and cute. I made DIY Christmas ornaments out of materials that otherwise would go in the trash. We're making DIY book page Christmas ornaments set in empty tealight containers.


So, when your candles run out, here's something you can make with them!

2. Cut the book pages

Cut two circles out of old book pages. Trace around the tealights to get the right shapes.

Cutting the book pages

Cut the circle bigger than the container so you can bend it in the edges and have enough room to glue it to the container.

Also, cut a long piece of paper to glue around the tealight.
