The photos are self-explanatory. After painting your pot however you wish, you want to cover the bottom so sand won’t leak out. We just used duct tape. Then fill it 2/3rds full with wadded up foil.  Fill with clean white sand. Bury your tea light to the top edge and place stones around it.  Paint the ends of your bamboo skewers. The kit can be placed on a tray or in a basket if given as a gift.
