The tealight candle, another option similar to the votive but smaller in size, is set inside its own aluminum or clear lucite container and available in different quantities at Tealight holders can add an elegant detail to candle-lit settings. Scented tealights and fire safe electronic tealights are also available. Tip: Be aware that not everything is a tealight holder. Consider if the material is flammable or too fragile to withstand the heat. Even some glass is too thin for tealights and will crack and break under the hot pressure! Use fillers, such as sand, to absorb the heat and pressure.
