Craft Instructions

Version 1:

  • This is the least expensive version as you can use regular battery operated tea lights instead of the more expensive submersible lights.
  • Fill the bottom of a wine glass with decorative stones.
  • Place a battery operated tea light among the stones with just the top portion (the part that lights up) showing above the stones.

Version 2:

By simply changing the light source, you get a completely different effect.

  • Fill the bottom of a wine glass with the decorative stones or marbles. Experiment with how full you want the glass filled with the stones. Different amountss of stones gives a very different look.
  • Turn on one of the submersible tea lights and burry it among the stones. Add a second light if you want your wine glass light to be brighter.

Note: Depending on which direction your lights are facing, it will give a different effect. I like to place one light upside down to get a glow on the table.

Version 3:

  • Prepare your wine glass light as you did in step 2.
  • Put some water in a separate container and add food coloring a few drops at a time until you get the color you want.
  • Pour the water over the lights and the stones.
  • If desired, sprinkle a few pieces of confetti on top of the water.

Note: Be sure to use submersible tea lights if using water.
