Angel tealite | Hobbyideas
A very thoughtful idea of making a mother and baby angel as tealites to adorn your home décor. You could paint them in your desired shades but pastels are recommended. They make a very different kind of tealites from the regular ones we see. Your mom would be elated seeing these once gifted to her on mother's day.
