New Artwork – Stain Glass Elephant Tea Light Holders
Elephant Tea Light Holders
I had a lot of fun hand-painting these three elephant tea light holders. I painted them as a gift for my niece for Christmas. She loves elephants. These candle holders took me a long time to make. Longer than any other present this year. I told her if she didn’t like them then I wanted them back because I liked them. I had them lit with tea lights for a week before I had to wrap them on Christmas Eve. Then it snowed and they sat on the cabinet in the box for 3 months. I was so tempted to unwrap them.
They are painted with Pebeo Vitrea 160 paint in oriental green color for the background. I wanted the background to have a scattered effect. I mixed black ink and veiled white to make the grey for the elephants. Using the Pebeo Vitrea black outliner I outlined everything.
Each of the candle holders has three tiny elephants circling the bowl. The bowl is one inch tall. The elephants are less than a half inch tall. I know the elephants look a little plain but they are very tiny and were very hard to draw on the glass. But I loved them and I hope my niece loved them too! The candle holder holds a tea light size candle. The Pebeo paints create a stain glass effect. The light from the candle creates a beautiful green glow.
The tea light holders are in three sizes. The smallest is 6″, the middle is 7″ and the tallest 8″ stemmed glass candle holders. I bought the tea lights and stemmed candle holders at Dollar Tree.
