First, cut cardboard circles.The size of the circle should be 3 inches larger than light. Now apply some glue at the base of the light and stick it in the centre of the cardboard circle.
Once it is dried start sticking round acrylic rhinestones in the lightest shade like white around the base of the light.
Now stick teardrop rhinestones in the darkest shade. Start from the edge of the circle.
Let it dry for a while. Stick teardrop rhinestones in a lighter shade than the above one in a way that the base of rhinestone is on the cardboard and tip rests on the outer, darkest rhinestone. Stick where space is left
Once all the rhinestones are stuck on the cardboard, your lotus light is ready. Now you can stick a string of tiny golden beads around tealight to give it a touch of elegance.
