Today's Carol: Deck the Halls

Here's a simple way to "deck the halls" (or your table) with a creation by your child.

Votive holder
Acrylic Paint
Tea light
1)  Using a Q-Tip, make "dots" all over the candle holder.

2)  Allow to dry.  Place a tea light in the holder.  Very pretty and simple....or you can move on to the next step.

3) Smear the outside of the glass with a thick coat of glue. Be careful not to scrape off any painted dots.  Roll or sprinkle with salt.

4)  Allow to dry completely.  Place a tea light in the votive holder.

I can't quite capture the effect, but they really do look quite festive!  And all for under $1 a piece!
