Lamp DIY – How to Make Threaded LED Tealight Cover!

Do you need that extra “cool” look to your home?  Then consider making one of these threaded LED tealight covers.  You can bypass that smelly candle and make it extra fuzzy and warm by adding these custom tealight covered lampts to you home.

I was messing around with different materials trying to dress up a little LED tealight, and this is one of the versions I ended up liking (plus it’s dirt cheap since it’s just thread!). I love me some textures. This may be useful for those with wedding venues that don’t allow real flames.

Lead Wheel Weights Must Not Used Anymore!

With Europe going crazy with RoHS and lead-free-ness, we are still polluting the earth with over 500,000 pounds of lead each year over here in the U.S. from lead wheel weights that go on cars.

Why is this so important?

Well, lead is poisonous and we should do everything from using lead, especially if that might end up in the dirt.
