Make your own tea light holder with FIMO! The ideal craft project for the upcoming autumn season!

What do you need? 


How do you start with this? 

  1. Cut two strips from the desired FIMO soft colours and cut them into many small pieces/confetti with a knife. 
  2. Roll out a block of white FIMO soft with the acrylic roller into an approx. 3mm think slice and place it on a piece of baking paper. 
  3. Sprinkle the confetti irregularly on the white FIMO slice. Let the colours overlap for a nice effect. 
  4. Using a rolling pin, roll over it with gentle pressure until the coloures confetti are merged with the white FIMO slice. This goes especially well if you put a piece of baking paper on top. 
  5. Using a large round cut-out, cut out a large circle and remove the remains. 
  6. Knead the removed scraps into a strand and roll it out with the acrylic roller into an approx. 3cm wide strip. Now sprinkle a few confetti pieces on this FIMO strip as well and roll over it with gentle pressure using the rolling pin. 
  7. Place the strip around the tea-light glass, pressing the clay gently. Cut the edges straight and smooth the seam with a modelling spatula. Roll the glass back and forth on your work surface with light pressure so that the FIMO bonds well with the glass. 
  8. Harden the circle and the rimmed tea-light glass for 30 minutes in a preheated oven at 110°C with top/bottom heat. Let everything cool down well. 
  9. Now you can place a small tea light in it and admire the beautiful reflection of your homemade artwork.
