DLTK's Kwanzaa Candle

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

This pretend Kwanzaa candle is made with a toilet paper tube, a printer and a little imagination.  It goes well as a table decoration along with the matching Kwanzaa napkin rings.

  • Print out the craft template of choice.
  • Colour (where appropriate) and cut out the template pieces.
  • Glue the large rectangular piece on first to cover the tube.
  • Glue the flame to the top of the "candle".
  • Glue on the ears of corn in whatever way you choose to decorate the candle.
  • Set the candle on top of a round piece of construction paper or a doily so you don't get imaginary wax all over the place.
  • Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
  • Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP  or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
