Decorative Tea-light Candleholders - Kids Make

Quick and simple to make and very attractive. Anyone who enjoys candlelight will love these little tea-light candleholders.
To make a tea-light candleholder you will need...
Make sure your jars are clean and dry. Knorr - 'Stir it up' cooking sauce jars are ideal for this. Shallow jars.
Metallic spray paint.
No nails glue.
Glass Stones.
When using spray paint it is important to make sure that you use it in a well-ventilated room and that you are not near any naked flames. Make sure that you read the back of the paint can before you begin. Spray paint your jars with a thin layer of metallic paint.
You may wish to apply two coats of paint for good coverage. Paint the outside and the inside of the jars and then leave them somewhere to dry.
No nails glue dries white. Be careful not to use too much glue because if it does splurge out onto the jar it will spoil the candle holders appearance. Use ‘No Nails' glue to stick on glass stones evenly around the outside of the jar.
Once the glue dries your ready to put the tea-light candle inside.
Never allow anything to cross the top of the jar because this would be a fire hazard. Do make sure that any decoration that you apply is on the lower part of the jar. Try substituting glass stones for seashells, sequins or buttons.

Glue on pasta shells or string before spray painting. You could use other things to decorate your candleholder.
Let your imagination go wild and create some beautiful tea-light candleholders for your friends and family this Christmas.
