These crafty candle holders are quite easy - you just need some glue, water, scissors & fabric. They work nicely as gifts because you can give them individually, as a duo, or even as a trifecta. Just be sure to use battery operated tea lights - a real candle in these bad boys wouldn't be safe. (Sorry 'bout the mom in me momentarily popping out. I've got to protect the Isn't That Charming clan.)

:: Materials Needed ::
- Craft Glue
- Water & a cup to put it in
:: Step 1 :: Mix craft glue & water until the water is a cloudy mixture. I eyeballed the proportions, but as a general rule, keep the mixture 1/3 glue and 2/3 water so that it dries clear on the fabric.
:: Step 2 :: Cut fabric into thin lines, approx. 1 - 2 inches in width. You will need about 5 - 6 lines of fabric per jar.
:: Step 3 :: Dip the fabric into the glue & water mixture. Gently squeeze the excess liquid from the fabric.
:: Step 4 :: Place into cup, smoothing out any air pockets.
:: Step 5 :: Cut excess fabric from the top rim of the jar.
:: Step 6 :: Let completely dry (Mine took about 24 hours). Be sure to use a battery operated candle inside the jar.
