Candle Dish

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.
