Salt Dough Diva Candles
Wednesday, 5 November 2014
It was always this time of year, when living in London, Reuben would come home with handmade diva candles from his lovely Montessori nursery. The children would explore the festival of Diwali and one of the mums would come and give a talk, they would taste Indian sweets, and make their little candle holders. We decided to make colourful candle holders with the boys over half term using our favourite salt dough recipe. The boys made a huge mess (as they do when flour is involved) and I helped shape balls of the dough into the holders which we then left to dry. Using our favourite new fluorescent and glitter IKEA paints we decorated and then covered with glitter for that extra sparkle!
How do you bring light into your homes at this time of year?
