I started saving bacon fat so that once I get enough I can use it for cooking. Lil thought I was making a candle the first time I poured some into a jar and ever since has been hounding me to make one. Today was the day.
You will need:
Decorative hearts - Dollar Tree is where I found mine.
Glass jar (Yankee Candle jars work well. I save these once the candle is gone, wash them out, and then use them for things like this.)
This is simple to do, but an adult should apply the adhesive to the jar and if a child is placing the hearts make sure that little fingers do not get covered in E6000. We did about a half of the jar at a time; I would apply a row of adhesive, my seven-year-old would place the hearts, and then we would move on to the next row. I let the jar rest on its side for about thirty minutes and then we worked on the second part of the jar; once it was covered with the hearts I let it cure for at least another hour until we set it upright.
As you can see from the photos below our candle holder puts off a nice glow when it is lit up. This is a super simple project you can do with your children and can be done with any type of clear decorations.
