Step 1: Supplies

Materials you will need are listed below:

  • Egg Carton.
  • Battery Operated LED Tea Light.
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissor

Step 2: Petals Making

Carefully cut out 5/6 egg cups from the egg carton.Make four equally spaced, inch-long slits at the wide end of each cone to form petals.

Step 3: Petals Shaping

With scissors, trim the edges to form perfect flower petals. For the bottom layer make big petals cup. Make shorter petals for inner layers.

Step 4: Flower Making

Cut out circles on the inside so that you can place your flower petals around the light bulbs. Glue the bigger petal cup carefully around the light. Repeat until the little smaller cups come, then roll it so petals curve and make a bud shape. Light the candle.

Ahh.. Here your cute rose tea light is ready... Enjoy!!
