This candle holder was actually a gift from my mother. I deconstructed it and added a bit to it for purposes of this post. This could easily be created by anyone preschool-age or older. Just make sure there are no sharp edges on the can and you help youngsters to avoid pinched fingers.

Supplies:

  • small tin can (tuna fish can for example) – cleaned and label removed
  • small candle – real or battery operated
  • clothes pins – paint if desired
  • ribbons and other decorations

Directions:

Clip clothes pins around the edge of the can.

I didn’t have any ribbon for Easter or any of the patriotic holidays, but I think you can use your imagination and figure out how to dress it up to match your decor or the season.

 

 

Thanks Mom!
