DIY | Simple Washi Tape Tea Light Candles


For me, Sunday's are all about relaxing and doing something that makes me feel happy, so today I'm bringing you a really simple DIY using a few things I had to hand in my craft box.

I picked up a pack of simple tea lights from IKEA last time I visited which were £1.75 for a pack of 100 and found some washi tape in various colours and designs which I had bought from eBay (they have an amazing selection).

I then wound the washi tape around the side of the tea lights and once it had gone all the way around just snipped the extra with some scissors.

It's a really simple idea which brightens up a plain pack of tealights, and they look beautiful on my windowsill. I plan to burn them later on when it gets dark.

I'm now looking up other ways to use washi tape and will hopefully try to make some more DIY's soon.


Do you like washi tape?

Ten things I'm looking forward to at Disneyworld

I'm sure that it won't come as a surprise to any of you that this year, Bradley and I are finally going on our honeymoon to Walt Disney World, Florida. Whilst I am stupidly excited already about the thought of going and seeing as much as I can cram into two weeks, I've carefully thought about ten things that I am most excited about doing/seeing and are my "must do" rides/attractions.

1 :: Purchasing a pair of Minnie ears upon arrival and not removing them the entire trip!
I think this is customary for anyone at Disney World, and especially for a first timer like me. Where else can you walk around with ears on your head and not look like an idiot? I also want to pick up a first trip and a birthday pin badge!

2 :: Riding the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
With a wait time of over two hours for this ride, I think we will be attempting to fast pass this but I will definitely be riding the mine train one way or another!

3 :: Trying a strawberry oolong tea slush
Fans of youtubers See Ya Reel Soon will know all about this drink which you can find at the Joy of Tea counter within the China pavillion at Epcot. It looks like the most perfect drink to cool you down on a hot day!

4 :: Drawing something at Animation Academy
I love sketching at home,(check out my Olaf) so I'm really excited about having a go at drawing a character at Hollywood studios. 

5 :: Eating a Oreo Mickey bar
I love oreos and I love ice cream so this is the perfect combination! Too bad ice cream melts otherwise I would be using up all my snack credits and bringing all these home!

6 :: Meeting Chip and Dale
Chip and Dale have fast become two of my favourite characters, they're just so cheeky! I can't wait to have a photo taken with them!

7 :: Trying to get Glactic Hero status on Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
I've been watching videos on how to get galactic hero status, which is a high score of 999999. I want that badge! It will be mine!

8 :: Breakfast at Chef Mickey's
Did someone say Mickey waffles? Err...yes please! Plus as it's a character breakfast you get to meet Mickey and friends too. It's also in Disney's contemporary resort which I'm excited to have a look around in.

9 :: Watching the Dapper Dans
I've been a Dapper Dan fan since the first time I saw them on videos online and I cannot wait to hear them sing! I also love the little outfits they wear too with the hats and stripey waistcoats! I really hope I can sneak in a photo with them!

10 :: Watching the Electric Light Parade and WISHES!!
Lastly, but certainly not least. I cannot wait for the electric light parade and wishes. Every time I see a video it makes me cry! I was hoping to run into Magic Kingdom on our first day to catch wishes, but due to when our flight arrives and we get through customs etc we won't have time. It will definitely be done on the first full day though!


Have you been to Disneyworld before?
What would you recommend as one of my "must dos"?

Disney Listography

Ever since I was little I was always making lists of some sort and I still enjoy it now. I was recently searching the internet for some listography inspiration and couldn't find much in the way of Disney related listography so I've decided to create my own for all the Disney fans and listographers out there!

Please feel free to use the template below for your own list making, I had fun creating it because it meant I had to make a list! I think I will create some more in the future and pop them up here for everyone to share.

If you decide to have a go, please leave me a comment to your post or tweet me the link, I love reading lists as much as I love writing them!
