Real Candle Christmas Craft

contributed by Pat!

Here is a Christmas craft for older children.


(I had mixed beans, kidney beans and a red candle so that's what I used for mine...  I'm always telling people to use what they have!  You can also add sequins or sparkles to your bean and glue mixture!)

I think I put in more beans than I needed to...  I was worried the candle wouldn't stay solid as it seemed wobbly when I first put it in (you can sort of see the colored bean layer and then the white layer I added because I didn't want the candle to tip).  I must say though that once the glue dries, the candle sits in there VERY sturdily.
