Here's a way to create a gift that really shines. Brighten up a room or highlight a table with a hand-designed candle dish.
What You'll Need:
- Glass bowl or tumbler
- Permanent markers
- Round or star-shaped candle (available at craft stores)
- Food coloring (optional)
Step 1: Decorate the outside of the glass bowl or tumbler -- all the way around -- with permanent markers. Be sure to let it dry for a few minutes between applications of different colors. Draw stars, snowflakes, or bursts of fireworks.
Step 2: Fill the bowl or tumbler half full with water and float a small candle in it. If you want, add a drop or two of food coloring to the water.
Step 3: Ask an adult to light the candle. The light will shine through your design.
The next marker craft gives you a crease-free way to mail your artwork to a friend or relative.
