Spring-themed tea lights are a simple elegant idea for those spring evenings, I love creating a relaxing or romantic mood with candles when I get some me time (which doesn’t happen as much as I would like).

Diva using a flame-less candle, the steps are beautifully explained in an easy to follow pictorial, and the results are simply stunning!
