Mother Teacup Candles
Moroccan Hanging Lanterns made from jars.
A wonderful way to customize a useful gift. This artwork candle is a great idea for Mother's Day! Have children decorate tissue paper with markers. Wrap the tissue paper around a plain candle, wrap in wax paper (wax side in, on the tissue paper), and heat with a hairdryer. You can see the wax melting and the tissue paper changing color. Heat until you can no longer see the base tissue paper.
