There’s hardly anything more cozy than candles on a dark winter night.

But burning candles can also be risky, especially if you have pets or small children at home. That’s what makes this alternative so clever.

By using this smart trick you get coziness, minus the risk. It’s safe and you only need things you probably already have in your home.

Since I’m the kind of person that loves making use of things I no longer need, I found this hack just perfect – and that’s why I wanted to share it with you.

Here’s what you need

An empty coca-cola bottle (plastic)
A string of white Christmas lights
Parchment or wax paper
Construction paper
A knife
Clear tape

1. Start by removing the label.
