Get out a buncha' tea lights, 'cause you're gonna need 'em
. Well, that is, if you'd like to have some inexpensive steam-powered holiday lighting this Christmas Eve. Should you be able to find some extremely thin copper tubing, a 10-pack (or more) of those dollar-store tea lights and some ordinary juice glasses, you can have some dazzling lighting effects
adorning your home early next week or even if you're hosting a New Year's party a little over a week from now.
All that is required here is some simple copper tubing, the tea lights, needle-nose pliers and a little time (and maybe a blowtorch...seriously
). These materials can create some really neat and authentic lighting effects
for that get-together and you can dazzle your guests by saying your holiday lighting is ram from steam power! It's true -- this is probably the smallest steam engine model I've yet seen. All for a few dollars and a little time.
