Lovely Holiday Candles

I saw this and this and came up with these:

I bought the plain religious candles from K-Mart for $1.49 each.

I let Little Miss choose the tissue paper; she chose this pretty gold one. Next, we tore the paper into pieces.

I watered down some school glue and spread the glue onto the candle with a foam brush.

I made one so I could show Little Miss how to do it and she did the entire candle on her own.

When the candles were completely covered in tissue paper, we allowed them to dry and then added glitter and ribbon.

This is a great kid's project and the creative possibilities are endless.

This will be one of the Christmas gifts that we will mail to her birthfamily.

“For it is in giving that we receive.”
-St. Franciss of Assisi

I'm linking up with Heather at Blessed Little Nest. Go check out all the great ideas.
