Sint Nicolaas tealights with silhouette


Sint Nicolaas is everywhere in Holland: plenty of miters and lots of pepernoten. These cute Sint Nicolaas tealights with silhouette give the living room a Sinterklaas boost of cosiness.


You need the following to make the Sint Nicolaas tealights with silhouette:

  • Glass pots
  • Paint (or tissue paper)
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Decoupage glue (mod podge)

How to make: Sinterklaas tealights with silhouette

Paint the inside surface of a glass jar or use decoupage glue and press the tissue paper flat against the jar. Download the miter silhouette and the bonnet silhouette of Zwarte Piet. Print it and cut it. Add a layer of decoupage glue onto the front of the jar and press the silhouette against it. Add another layer of decoupage glue and let dry. Put a tealight (or one on batteries) into the glass jar and you are done!
