copper tea light holder

made a copper tea light holder :)

cut a 1 1/2 inch wide strip by 6 inch long from copper

draw your shapes onto the metal

small tip (if you like a shape make a template out of plastic via exacto knife )

cut out your lizards

i use a jewelers saw with 1/0 blades

shape the strip ,dome a circle and cut a 3x3 inch square

solder everything together ( use plumbers solder as it has a low melting temp )

start polishing - steel wool will do or sand paper

put a tea light in and light it
