substitutions for candles to mark a circle

Dear Lexa
Are there any substitutions I can use to mark a circle besides a candle? I live in an apartment complex and also use a Wheelchair. The apartment managers do not like or allow candles in the building can you help me substitute any other objects in place of candles?

The candles used to mark the quarters or 4 directions of the circle could be replaced by small electric lights or flashlights. You could also use something symbolic of the quarter instead of the candle such as
a feather to represent the east
something red and fiery (jalapeño pepper comes to mind) to represent the south
a bowl of water or a shell to represent west
a smooth stone to represent the north.
You could also just visualize the candles without actually having them there.
blessed be
