DIY Hanging Tea Light Holders!

Do you remember the branches I have in my urn outside our front door? Here is what I decided to do with them:
I think they are going to look really great at night!

I am using flameless tea lights so I don't have the fire department at our house anytime soon.

Here are all the supplies you will need:
Florist wire
Tea light holder (must be the kind with the larger rim, if it is straight up and down the wire will fall off)
Scissors
Tea lights
Cost: wire(.97 Walmart), tea-lights (.99 Michael's), tealights (6.79 Michael's, less if you have a coupon)
Wrap floral wire around tea light and then twist it around itself. You may have to pull tight on the long end to get it snug when you are done wrapping the wire.

Take long end of wire and loop it around existing wire on the opposite side.

Then twist the remaining wire. I did all this with my fingers but if you could use pliers if you prefer.

Voila!
You just made a hanging tea-light holder.
