Easy Upcycle Christmas TP Candle Craft

Candles have been an important symbol of Christmas for eons. Did you know Martin Luther was the first to light a Christmas tree with Candles?  Symbolizing the light of Christ in the world, On the weeks leading to Christmas through Advent, a candle is lit in church. 
Each year at Christmas our family used to make candles for our doors from left-over Christmas wrap tubes, Christmas paper and ribbon. I was trying to think of a craft kids might be able to do at home if they didn't have any craft supplies. so I created this mini-version from items we had on hand. - a Toilet tissue roll,  and junk mail. How to secure the flame in the candle was a puzzle, until I folded the paper to make the flame - and the light came on! These instructions can also help students learn a few geometry terms. Here's what you need:

Upcycle TP Roll Candle Supplies:

  • Junk Mail with no Printing on one side.
  • Empty Toilet Paper Tube
  • Optional - tape or glue,

Upcycle TP Roll Candle Tools:

Optional - Scissors

3. Now, cut or tear a flame from Junk Mail that is 1 inch wider than the Toilet Paper Tube. Tip - fold the paper in half for a symmetrical flame. This will also help your flame stand in your candle.
