Metal Hanging Tealight Holder
Advantages: Can be used inside or in the garden
Disadvantages: None for me
The tea light holder I am reviewing has a slightly different pattern on it to the one Dooyoo are showing in their picture.
We received this pretty hanging tea light holder as part of a wedding gift along with some lovely scented tea lights, my family know how much I love candles or anything that fragrances my home and thought this would be just the sort of thing I would like, they were not wrong I love it.
My hanging tea light holder is in the shape of a heart, it is rounded like a pillow so there's room inside for the tea light. Its approximately 20cm's long and is painted in an off white colour to give it a vintage look. The front of my tea light holder has little holes punched out of it that form a heat pattern. They go all around the edge in large and smaller holes, in the 2 rounded parts at the top of the heart are 2 little heart shaped holes punched out with smaller round holes outlining them. The centre of the heart has a small heart shaped hole outlined in 3 rows of holes each getting slightly bigger. This pattern is repeated on the back too.
The front of the tea light holder has a little heart shaped hinged door with a little latch to open and close it. This is where the tea light goes. The heart has a metal holder inside it to take a regular sized tea light which sites securely in the holder.
My tea light holder has a chain attached to the top centre of the heart so you can hang it up, the chain feels strong and measures approximately 50cm's, it is in the same off white colour as the heart and has a hook on the end of it.
Although the holders are designed for both indoor and outdoor use I have only used mine inside. I'm not sure how this would weather and as it was a wedding gift I don't want to risk anything happening to it so I have mine hanging in a window.
When the tea light is lit in the holder its really pretty, the light shines through all the little holes making it a very nice decoration. I could see how these would look lovely in the garden and am tempted to buy some for that purpose. You could have just one or several hanging around the garden and they would add a lovely atmosphere to an evening BBQ.
As I mentioned mine was a wedding gift but these hearts are widely available in garden centres and online shops such as Amazon. They cost approximately £5-10.00 depending on where you buy from but in my opinion they are worth the money.
They have a lovely vintage look to them and make a pretty window decoration even without the tea light lit inside it still looks really nice. These would make a lovely gift for any occasion and if hearts are not your thing they are available in a bird shape too.
Summary: A very pretty tea light holder that would make a lovely gift
