Diwali Candle Holder
Diwali Candle Holder for Kids – Materials
- Transparent glass bangles (You can stock up on these here US/ UK)
- Plastic craft board
- X-acto knife
- Clear adhesive glue
How to make your DIYA for Kids
Select transparent glass bangles for this project. The selected bangles should be of the same size for each candle holder. Take a piece of plastic craft board and place a bangle on it. Use pencil to trace the inner circle of the bangle.
Use x-acto knife to cut out the traced circle from the plastic craft board.
Place the cut out circle inside the bangle (the one used for tracing the circle) and apply clear adhesive glue around the side to join the board cut out with the bangle.
Now start adding more bangles, one on the top of the other one to create the height of the candle holder. Use clear adhesive glue to join the bangles.
Keep adding bangles until reaching the required height for the candle holder. Mix and match different colored bangles.
To decorate the candle holder add beads to the top open end. Add more decorative items if you want to.
Now place a candle inside the holder and light up the candle!
