A quick and simple Christmas Tee Light Decoration, made using an Old CD, acetate, Peel Offs Stickers, candy Tray, Transparent Glass paint (Pebeo Vitrail, Pebeo Vitrea 160 Pens) and Glue. The outline of the Pee-off’s give a leaded stained glass appearance to the design.
Peel Off Sticker on acetate
Peel Off Sticker on acetate after painting
Cut a square of Acetate to approx 3.5″ by 3.5″
Gently score a line approx 0.5″ up from the bottom of one side. This will act as the securing fold to the CD
Select an appropriate Peel Off Sticker as your design.
Stick this in the centre of the acetate sheet, with the base of your design between 0.25 and 0.75″ above the scored line ( or ensure that the centre of your design is approx 1.25″ above the score line. This is approx the height of the Tee Light Flame)
Fill in the blank areas of your Peel Off Sticker with the glass paint, or glass pen, and allow to dry
Stick a candy tray over the centre hole of the CD. This will hold your Tee Light in Place. Many Tee lights come with a lose metal or plastic cup. This can be used instead of the Candy Tray.
Once your paint is dry and your Tee light holder is secure over the centre of the CD
Fold the acetate sheet at right angles along the scored line away from the design.
Secure the acetate sheet by the folded tab to the CD. Ensuing that the acetate is 0.5 to 0.75″ away from the edge of the Tee Light.
Add extra detail to the Acetate sheet by sticking on spangles etc
CAUTION:Never leave your burning Candles unattended. Do not place your Creation in a draft or near flammable objects
Note: Pebeo Porcelaine 150 paints and Pebeo Vitrea 160 Glass Paints are designed to be baked in an oven for a hardwearing finish. The paint will dry under normal conditions and is perfectly suitable for this project. After all You won’t be washing your decoration in the Dishwasher! Will You ??!!
