DIY Patriotic Sand Candles and Beachy Sand Candles
- Sand (red, white, blue for patriotic candles)
- Citronella Votive candles
- Drinking glass
- Clear glass vase, jar, or clear decorative container
Funnel; optional; a plastic bag can also be used
Directions for Beachy Sand Candles
Fill the container with sand from the beach, or any color of your choice
Place the Citronella candle in the sand
Place the seashells decoratively in the container
Directions for Patriotic Sand Candles
Fill a clear drinking glass with enough sand so that a votive candle placed on top falls just below the rim.
Set the glass inside a clear glass vase or jar
With a funnel, fill the gap between the two containers with layers of colored sand, using enough to reach the rim of the drinking glass; this is done so that you do not need to use a bunch of the colored sand, since that is more expensive!
