Kids can make this patriotic tea light using a toilet paper roll and craft sticks.
How to make a patriotic tea light
You need just a few supplies:
- Toilet paper or paper towel roll
- Craft sticks
- Red, white, and blue acrylic paint
- Liquid glue
- Battery operated tea light
- Double-sided adhesive (optional)
- Embellishments (optional)
Let’s make it:
- Measure the height of the tea light and mark it on the toilet paper roll.
- Next, cut away the excess roll, leaving the circle.
- Paint the craft sticks and set them aside to dry. I used three red, two white, and three blue.
- Add a bead of glue around the toilet paper roll. Optionally, add a band of double-sided tape, too.
- Glue the craft sticks in place around the toilet paper roll. A rubber band will help keep them in place as the glue dries.
- Set over a battery-powered tea light and enjoy!!
- You can optionally add embellishments for stars. I glued on rhinestones, but you could cut stars from white paper.
