This is a set of three snow flake tea lights. The pattern is by Shelia Landry. I love cutting her patterns and really enjoyed meeting her on our trip to Saratoga Springs NY earlier in the year.

These are cut from 1/8 iinch Baltic Birch Ply, spray painted white, with “twinkles” glitter paint with a final coating of Krylon gloss spray for the finishing touch. I usually give this away with any order I am givin, but I might be changing that to the “Please Don’t Text and Drive” ornament (Pattern by Steve Good) to get the work out.

These look cool! I always liked this pattern and it is fun to do. Sometimes I brush sparkle glaze on them to make them shimmer. That makes them look more snowy. I love sparkle glaze sometimes. Keith teases me because he says I make everything sparkle. But I let him tease and do my own thing anyway! :D

You do really nice cutting and I am happy to see you posting your projects here. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Barb.

Shelia, the “twinkles” paint I use is a glitter paint that sparkle in the right light. LOL. I love sparkles too, especially at Christmas time with all the lights.
