DIY | romantic outdoor lighting

Share this project

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the fabulous ‘my beloved’ shoot this week… I know I did! In the shoot I incorporated this easy way to light any outside area – hanging battery operated tea lights! Many venues will not allow open flame candles… a perfect alternative and you don’t have to worry about them catching on fire or blowing out in the wind!

Supplies: scissors, thread, and lots of battery operated tea lights!

This is beyond easy, cut thread and tie it onto the little base of the battery operated flame – it is usually tapered so the thread will stay on. Make sure to double knot. I would make all these up ahead of time!

That’s it! Remember to leave a long amount of string for tying onto objects; ie. tree’s, fences, poles, etc.

Carefully add all your pretty tea lights to any place that you would like some safe, romantic lighting!

Great alternative! A lot better than using candles. It may be cheap yet romantic.

Your are brilliant! I will be doing this and a ton of other ideas you have for my renewal of vows on September 28, 2012. We had a court house wedding the first time around to save on price and finding your blog is one of the best things I ever did! You are a huge inspiration! =) Thank you and I'll be posting pictures for you when we get everything done =)
