"Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
What You Need: black
a small glass container—candleholder or jar,
multi-colored aquarium gravel, clear silicone, and a votive candle.
What You Do: Use a permanent marker to write your name on the
bottom of the container. Apply a layer of clear silicone to outside of
glass container, you do not need to cover it completely—halfway up the
container in a wavy pattern is visually interesting. Pour
aquarium gravel over silicone. (Place a tray under the container as you pour
the gravel to catch the overflow.) Firmly press the gravel into
the silicone. Press more gravel into the areas that need filling. Allow
to dry. Place votive candle in the container. Let your light shine!
the candle requires adult supervision.
