- glass cylinders with straight vertical sides
- vellum paper
- permanent markers
- hole punch
- wired ribbon
- candles or tea lights
Cut vellum to fit around the exterior of glass cylinders. Help kids draw pictures or write messages to Mom on the vellum with permanent markers.
Using a standard or decorative single hole punch, punch two holes on each end of the vellum. Make sure the holes are punched in the same place on both sides so they will line up when tied together.
Attach Art to Glass
Use scissors to cut two 8- to 10-inch lengths of colorful ribbon for each candleholder (Image 1). Wrap vellum artwork around the cylinder's exterior, then gently thread ribbon through punched top and bottom holes to pull the vellum together (Image 2). Tip: Vellum can tear if ribbons are pulled through too forcefully, so work carefully.
