Buying "floating" candles can be down right expensive and in this economy who can afford that luxury? Create that intimate look floating candles provide for much less using...tea lights! These tiny lights are normally used in luminaries and under chaffing dishes, but they normally aren't the light of the party. Our research team has discovered that by removing them from their ugly tin cups and double-coating the metal disk on the underside with melted wax transforms them into festive "floaters". In tests, ours burned for upwards of 3.5 hours and cost mear pennies. Tea lights come in a variety of attractive colors, often are sold in bags of 100, and we even floated ours in tinted water.
