Doily Tea Light Holders

Author: Angie Holden


  • Doilies
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Stiffy
  • Glasses large enough to accommodate a tea light
  • Bowl a disposable one works great
  • Tea Lights real or battery operated


  • Start by covering the glasses you are going to use with plastic wrap.
  • Pour the Stiffy into a disposable bowl.  NOTE:  You can pour any excess at the end back into your container and reuse it.
  • Add your doily to the Stiffy and be sure to cover it completely.
  • Then squeeze any excess from the doily.  IMPORTANT:  You do not want to wring out your doily as that may stretch it.
  • Apply the doily to the bottom of the glass.  Press the bottom to ensure it is flat.
  • Then create pleats all around the outer edge to take up the excess material.
  • Once happy with the shape, set aside to dry overnight.
  • Then just remove from your glass and your doily tea light holders are complete.
