SUPPLIES

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

Flameless Tea Light  |  Orange Cupcake Liners – I used the orange from this multi pack or you can use these plain orange cupcake Liners

Gold Paint  |  Paint Brush  |  Tacky Glue  |  Scissors

DIRECTIONS:

First paint the toilet paper tube gold and let it dry. Then glue the cupcake liner 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 tea light. That way it was not hanging over the bottom of the tea light.

Apply a little glue to the edges of the tea light 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 of tissue paper. Let dry. I also used the orange cupcake liners for this kids Turkey Craft. It’s super cute for Thanksgiving!

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

Hope the kids enjoy make these Glowing Torches for the Summer Olympics or if they are more a fan of the Winter Olympics!

  1. Brilliant! It looks like you basically made your own flashlight out of the toilet paper roll and the votive candle. I think I’ll build mine around a flashlight bc I’m way lazier. 🙂 This is so cute! Thanks for the idea!

  2. I am sorry to bother you. We are having Olympic games at our school this Friday, and I bought materials. The only thing different is I bought glue sticks. I attempted to make a sample one, but I am a little confused about the wrapping of the tissue paper. Do I glue tea light and wrap paper around it, and drop in light wrapped in tissue paper, or do I just use light as a guide, and drop in afterwards? Should the tissue paper be glued to inside of muffin cup afterwards? Perhaps, the glue is my issue? I can’t get it to stay. 🙂 This craft is super cute, so I am hoping to figure it out.

  3. How clever and oh so festive for this summer and the Olympics coming up. Thanks so much for sharing this with us on #shinebloghop this week 🙂

  4. I don’t even have little kids anymore and I want to make that torch, it’s so SUPER cute! But the darn ads!!! There’s even an ad that gets between the heading “Supplies” and the supply list, which makes it hard to spot them. Darn advertising setups have no consideration for the user experience! Grrr! I’m not blaming you, because I have enough marketing experience to understand how these things work, but — dang the companies that have webpage owners at their mercy and make them put up with that; it’s annoying!

  5. What is the likelihood that it could catch fire with the tea light? Just wondering for next time. I’d like to do the light up, but that one thing worries me.

    1. I don’t think it is likely that LED battery tea lights will catch fire. They do not get hot. Plus they are not attached to the torch but sit inside the cupcake liner. While I don’t know for sure…I don’t think it is likely.
