Hygge tea light

Say farewell to stress – in the simplest possible way!
The world we live in seems to be getting more and more hectic. Hygge counterbalances the stresses of daily life: let your cares take a back seat, enjoy the moment and find your centre again. It’s easy to do with a home-made hygge tea light made from FIMO soft. Its knitted look creates a cosy candle-lit mood in no time.

Step-by-step tutorial

Roll four cords 5mm thick from each of 2 blocks of FIMO soft, one in dolphin grey and one in white.

Twist the two cords of the same colour round each other in a clockwise direction.

Do the same with the other two cords but twist them anti-clockwise.

Now lay the two twisted cords lengthways next to each other and press together to create the knitted look.

Press the knitted strips around the tea light, with the white at the top and the grey at the bottom.

Cut off the leftovers.

Now harden the tea light for 30 minutes in a preheated oven at 110° C / 230° F on upper and lower heat. Make sure you use an oven thermometer so that you can be certain the temperature stays constant at 110° C / 230° F.

Tip: Work in progress and left-over material should be protected against sun and heat and can be stored in a screw-top jar or in cling film.
