Gardner’s Candle Holder

16 Oct

Found at: http://playinginthedirt.ca/2009/03/07/gardeners-candle-holder/

This lovely little candle holder was given to me by a little friend last December.  I’ve been planning to write about it ever since.  This candle is holder is a great weekend gardening project you can do with your kids.

You will need:

craft glue
an assortment of seeds, beans, dried corn, etc.
an old muffin tin (one you don’t plan to use again for baking
tealight

In a plastic bowl, combine the seeds and beans. Gradually add some craft glue and stir the mixture until the glue evenly coats all the pieces.  Transfer mixture to a muffin tin and press lightly so that the mixture takes on the shape of the tin.

Take a tealight and press into the surface of the seedy blob until you’ve made an indentation the same size as the tealight.  Allow to dry.  White craft glue usually dries clear.

Pop the candle holder out of the muffin tin.  You’re done!

This little candle looks pretty in any room of your house, and makes the perfect gift for the gardeners in your life.

Note from Sheri:  YOU COULD USE BEADS OR COLORED PEBBLES (FISH TANK PEBBLES?) AS WELL. GET CREATIVE!
