To make the Lotus Tealights:

* First cut out cardboard discs (as many discs as you want to make lotus tealights). The size of the disc should be 3 inches larger than the tealight. Now apply some glue at the base of tealight and stick it in the centre of the disc.

* Once this has dried, start sticking circular rhinestones in the lightest shade around the base of the tealight.

* Then stick teardrop rhinestones in the darkest shade, on the outer edge of the circle.

* Let this first layer dry before continuing.

* Next choose a lighter shade of teardrop rhinestones and stick these on by overlapping onto the first layer, placing them in the gaps made by the first rhinestones.

* Once all the rhinestones are stuck on and hide the cardboard disc, your lotus tealight is ready

* Optional: stick a string of golden beads around tealight to give it that extra touch of elegance.
