Here’s what you’ll need:

2. Fold another sheet of white paper into three equal sections crosswise.


3. Fold it again into three equal parts crosswise.


4. Crease in half lengthwise and trace a petal like shape onto one side. Cut out all layers at the same time.


5. Cut thin strips on each side of the petal and a short vertical cut on the base of the petal.


6. Gently tug at the strips for added texture.


7. Place the two ends of the petal together and stick several of these onto the paper base until it’s full.


8. Place the glass on top of the finished leaf candle holder.


8. Using washi tape, cover up the edges of the tea candle for some extra flare.


9. Insert the tea candle into the glass and light a flame.
