The kids and I had a blast making these sand candle holders. Best yet, it was free to make because we had all the supplies. To make we layered colored sand into the teacups. I got the colored sand many years ago, you can pick some up at any craft store. We simple took a spoon and layered the sand into the cup. My daughter used a stick to push the sand around to make a cool pattern. I went for a striped look. Aside from sand everywhere, this was pretty simple and fun. I'm having fun placing my new decor all over the house.
