Fall Harvest Candle holder, using edible materials, is a festive addition to any holiday table that uses natural ingredients that are reusable - you can make soup!
List of Materials Needed:
- 1 package Orange lentils
- 1 package Yellow lentils
- Walnuts in the Shell
- 24 Karat Edible Sheets
- Gold Hardware Paint
- Glass vases
- Non-drip Candles
Use a double glass cylinder to create a ‘sand art” like design with multi-colored beans and grains. (If you plan on reusing the beans for a soup, make sure to use varieties that require similar cooking methods) Layer the colored beans color by color, making patterns of uneven layers or creating pockets with dowels or strips of cardboard and back fill with a contrasting color.
Fill the center cylinder with a fine grain halfway then place some decorative walnuts into the four corners.
Add the candle to the center of the vase, pushing it down into the grains to complete the centerpiece.
Let the kid in you come out on this project or better yet, get the kids involved!
