Let your kids be creative and have fun as they craft patriotic candle holders to celebrate the 4th of July. 
  • Baby food jar (or other glass container)
  • Red, white, and blue tissue paper
  • Glue
  • Paint brush
  • Battery operated candles
  1. Mix 1 part glue and 1 part water in small bowl. This makes a Modge Podge type glue.

  3. Apply tissue paper cut into small squares and stars in red, white, and blue. 
  4. Paint another layer of glue on top of tissue (feel free to apply liberally as the glue dries clear).
  5. Allow the jar to dry and then place battery operated candle inside.
  6. Enjoy your work!
*Warning: These candle holders are not flame resistant and you should only use battery operated candle.
