Glowing TeaLight Olympic Torch

Get the kids involved celebrating the Olympics by creating this Glowing Tealight Olympic Torch! So fun…it actually lights up! This would be great for the kids to make and have for the opening Olympic Ceremony! They could hold their own glowing torches as they watch!

Four 5″ Squares of Yellow & Orange Tissue Paper  |  Toilet Paper Tube

Battery Operated TeaLights  |  Orange Cupcake Cup

Gold Paint  |  Paint Brush  |  Glue  |  Scissors


First paint the toilet paper tube gold and let it dry. Then glue the cupcake cup onto the top of the tube.

Cut the yellow and orange tissue paper into approximately 5″ squares – you don’t need to be exact. I cut one corner of the tissue paper off and lined that edge up with the bottom of the tealight. That way it was not hanging over the bottom of the tealight.

Apply a little glue to the edges of the tealight and layer the tissue paper around the sides. I started and layered four yellow pieces of tissue paper then reapplied the glue and layered four orange pieces. Let dry. {I had a hard time finding orange cupcake cups for this earlier project. Check here to see where I found them.}

Then sit the tealight into the top of the cup. This way it is easy to take the tealight in and out of the torch making it easy to turn it off and on…saves on batteries! Win!!
