Christmas Candleholder

Cast a glow on children's faces with this simple, charming hand-painted candleholder. Follow the winter theme by turning the snowman into a snowflake or a Menorah.

What you'll need:

  • Baby food jar (emptied and rinsed out)
  • Paint
  • Ribbon
  • Tea light candle
  • Paintbrush

How to make it:

  1. Empty out and wash jar.
  2. Tie ribbon around the top, but back from the edge so the flame can't reach it.
  3. Paint any kind of design you wish on the jar. Try snowflakes, hearts, tree ornaments, etc.
  4. Put small candle inside.
  5. Light and watch how pretty it is.
