Paper covered candles: probably one of the easiest crafts ever and lovely on the table or fireplace mantel.
Here's what you'll need:
a couple glass votives
a selection of paper, wrapping or scrap
scissors, glue stick, tealight, matches
Cut your paper to fit your glass. Don't worry about making it perfect. You'll have time to trim.
Apply glue to paper.
Press against the glass. Repeat with the other end of the paper.
Trim the excess paper.
Don't worry, the edge of the glass will guide you to a decently straight cut.
light the tealight
And you're done.
You did a terrific job!
