Make a Christmas Candle Holder.


Whenever we walk on the beach, we always come away with an armload of beautiful driftwood. There is always some to be found… little treasures from faraway lands, bleached pale from their long ocean travels.

So, what do you do with your armloads of driftwood, you ask?
Sometimes we use it to build a magnificent castle…
Other times, we make sweet candle holders to decorate our home for Christmas.
To make our candle holders, we needed…
driftwood,
a few candles
a drill with a drill bit as large as the candles.
K decided where the holes should go and I drilled them for her, just the right size for our candles to fit in snugly.


We wiggled the candles into their holes and our candle holder is ready to put in a special place.


We will light our candles at dinner time. If you are going to make some, please make sure that the dirftwood you use is stable and wont fall over. Also, never leave them unattended as if they burn down, the driftwood will catch alight.
A favorite way to get my kids to eat dinner is to remind them that they can blow the candles out ONLY when they are finished. They clean their plates… It works every time!
Blessings and magic.
