Remember to never leave candles unattended! We've burned ours for hours on end with no problems- actually we were hoping the plastic edges would curl more than they have, and we feel ours to be perfectly safe to use indoors but I keep an eye on it. You might prefer to use it outdoors because of burning a candle inside of plastic, but it could easily be made into a lamp if you wired a led into it or filled it with Christmas lights.

Step 1: What You Need
Sharpie pens of whatever colors you want your project to be
Glass tea light holder
Elmer's glue (or any other glue you want) (optional)
Step 2: Destruction of Plastic
The second bottle is cut just from the center part with no base or top. Each layer will get sandwiched on top of each other to become contrasting layers of stained glass
I just cut them all freehand but if you wanted to you could easily trace a pattern on with a whiteboard marker and use that to cut then wipe it off before coloring in the design.
Step 3: Coloration
Next color in whatever pattern you find suitable, I decided on a simple design with one color for each wing that I had cut out. I colored each piece in the same fashion and with the same basic design.
Step 4: Slide It Together and Light It Up
Place a small glass tea light holder in the center- you can glue it down if you feel so inclined. Light a tea light and place in the holder. Enjoy your new stained glass enhanced ambiance.
