Winter’s Light Series - Glittered Battery Tealight Candles
January 19, 2016
Hello! Continuing with our Winter's Light Series, I'm bringing you another way to light up your January - our glittered battery tealight candles!
Perfect for your party, event, home, or holiday decorating needs, these battery tea light candles are coated with superfine, super sparkly glitter! One of the great things about these candles (besides how pretty they are!), is that they have very minimal shed. I LOVE glittered things. I DON'T LOVE poorly adhered glitter. It's no fun to shell out money for a nice looking product only to open it up and find it is half naked with most of the glitter in the wrapping.
After glittering for many many years, I have come up with a method that produces a very well-adhered product. In the rare event that your tealight gets a bald spot, you won't find glaring white underneath - I give my tealights 2-3 coats of paint in a color the matches the glitter to cover up that white! Lastly, before shipping your item, I handle each tealight I made, giving it a very vigorous brushing and rubbing, to ensure everything is really stuck on there. If it doesn't pass the test, it doesn't get shipped!
(I won't tell you that your tealight will never shed a drop of glitter - it is the nature of glitter, some of it will spread it's love a bit. What I will tell you is that you won't get pools of glitter and naked candles. :) )
Each candle measures 1-1/2 inches in diameter, and 1-7/8 inches tall, and has as a gentle flicker. Turns on/off easily with a switch on the bottom. They use a single CR2032 Lithium battery - one is included with each candle, and you can easily find replacements at drug stores, hardware stores, online, etc. BUT - to make life a little easier for you, we toss in an extra "just in case" battery for free! This means your candle will come with one battery already inside so it's ready to go, and you'll have an extra one just in case!
Our battery candles are made to order, so keep that in mind if you are ordering for a special event. I do keep a couple of each color on hand to ship as needed, but for the most part they are made as the orders come in. While I aim to make them immediately upon order, I play it safe and tell you to expect 1-2 weeks for them to be made before shipping.
Great for weddings, birthday parties, halloween, Mardi Gras, sports parties, wedding or baby showers, Christmas, whatever you can think of! Currently we have 11 colors available, but we plan do release more within the next few months. You can find them all here!
We hope you enjoyed this week's edition of our Winter's Light series! (You can read more about the series here). Have a lovely week!! :)
