Assembly

Step 1: Stuff empty tissue roll with plastic shopping bag & cover one end with packing tape to keep the bag in place. Leave enough space at the other end so the battery operated tealight will fit. No need to secure the tealight in since you need to be able to turn it on and off.

Step 2: Place tealight in top of tissue roll. Place crocheted candle over tissue roll so the flame sticks through the hole in RND 1. You can use an orange chenille stem in place of the tealight candle if you do not have a tealight candle.

Step 3: Hot glue the Christmas floral decoration to the bottom of the candle on rnd 14.
