Here are some easy to make candle holders that children can enjoy with a
little help.

Supplies needed:

Small tea candle
Empty baby food jar
Colored tissue
Glue and paintbrush

Make a candle holder just the right size for a tea light candle out of a
recycled baby food jar. Remove the label from the baby food jar and clean
thoroughly. Give your child scraps of brightly colored tissue paper and
glue mixed with a little water. Have your child brush the glue on the
baby food jar and glue the tissue in pace. When the jar is completely
covered with tissue paper, go over the jar again with another layer of
glue. Add a tea light candle and you have just created a perfect candle
holder gift.

Here is another idea for making a unique candle holder out of soup or
vegetable cans.

Supplies needed:

Empty soup can
Hammer and nail

Remove the label off of the can and clean well. If the label on the can
is difficult to remove, you can soak the can in warm soapy water and
continue to remove the label. After the can is clean, fill it to the top
with water and place in the freezer. When the water is frozen, use a
hammer and a nail to pound holes into the can. The ice inside the can
will help it hold its shape. Be creative with the design. Let the ice
melt and place a small candle or tea light candle inside. These candle
holders look pretty outside around the holiday season.
