Directions to Make TP Roll Tealight Holder
Begin by cutting the TP roll in half.
Make a Few Slits like this and open it resembling a flower. You can make it with even 10 or 15 petal.
Now paint the inner and outer surfaces of the Toilet paper roll. Let it dry of 5 minutes.
Add patterns with 3d puffy paint. We have added gold paint to the Blue base.
Let all the paint dry. And the decorative tealight holder is ready! Just Insert the candle inside and light it. It will rightly and firmly fit inside.
