Crafty Candle Holders

Look what Nate and James made! (with help from Mom, of course!)

dried corn
dried beans
dried whatever-you-have-in-the-pantry
white glue
plastic wrap
small container to make the candle in

Directions: mix the appropriate amount of dried goods in a medium container and add plenty of white glue. Press the mixture down into the plastic wrap lined small container. Let set for a few minutes and smoosh a candle down into it. After a couple hours, remove carefully from the container, remove plastic wrap and candle so it can thoroughly dry. Let dry overnight.

They look great on our table! Thanks, Nate and James! Happy Thanksgiving!

I've done these with split peas, coffee beans, black eyed peas, and even layered different beans/pea combos and they look awesome!
