To avoid having the tea candles sitting at an angle like the right one in the picture, don't use beans or anything coarse for the ballast. Ballast is supposed to be heavy and even. Plaster of Paris with a tea candle pressed into it before it hardens makes a much safer ballast.
However, unless you have cats who like knocking things over, you don't normally need a ballast. Gluing some of that sticky feeling drawer liner mesh onto the bottom (outside) is much safer.
Also, unless you are a sadist who enjoys seeing people burn their fingers, include a few pieces of spaghetti. They work really well for lighting the candle, pilot lights and even BBQs.
