Making your own fourth of July candle holders is a fun way to get in the patriotic spirit! My kids and I always love making crafts to celebrate the birth of our country. Each year we try to come up with something a little bit different, so we can add to our holiday decorations each year.
This craft was really fun for the kids to do to make the candle holders cost less than $2 each! All you need is the following
- Scrapbook papers (in shades of red, white, and blue)
- Star paper punch
- Mod Podge
- 2 glass votive holders
- Paint Brush
- Food Coloring
- In two separate cups, pour a little bit of Mod Podge craft glue. Set aside.
- In cup number one, place 2-3 drops of blue food coloring and stir (or more if you want a darker color)
- In cup number two, place 3-4 drops of red food coloring and stir (or more if you want a darker color)
- With your paper punch, punch out star shapes of your different scrapbook papers.
- Hold the stars in place on your votive holder, and with the paint brush use ONE of the Mod Podge mixtures to secure the star.
- Place as many stars as you like, and then coat the whole outside AND inside of the holder with tinted Mod Podge.
- Repeat on the second holder with the other color.
- Allow to dry.
- Add a votive candle for a unique candle holder for your patriotic festivities.
