Sunday DIY: Decorated Tealight Holders

Firstly I'd just like to say a big thank you as I hit and passed 50 followers this week which is great! It's nice to know that so many people are interested in my blog and I really appreciate it :)

So, you may have guessed from the title that Sundays are the day I've decided I will post DIY's when I have them, mainly because the weekend is when I'm most likely to have the time. They will probably mostly be really simple DIY's like this one and the ones I have posted before. I hope you guys like them as a blog feature and if you have any ideas for DIY's please do let me know and I will see what I can do!!

Scented tealights and holders from IKEA, both came in multipacks.
To create the design on the glass I used this pen instead of traditional glass paints. I picked it up from Hobbycraft for just under £4 and I believe you can use it on other surfaces like ceramics too. I chose to keep it simple and buy the black pen to begin with as I was just testing it out but they do come in a wide variety of colours. For the design itself I just made it up as I went along to be honest, but they could be personalised with writing too which I think might make cute little gifts.

This post also marks the start of me actually trying to stick to a posting schedule, fingers crossed it will work out. I realise I haven't done a film post for a few weeks now but I promise they will be back soon starting with Winter's Bone which I believe I said I was going to do a post on ages ago (I'm rubbish!). Please check back tomorrow for a week in photos post!
