Materials

With a nice little jar, some dilute white glue and some Epsom Salts you can make a pretty tea light holder.

First paint the jar with diluted glue…

Epsom Salts

Two Candles

If you are Finnish you might put two candles in the window today…

On December 6th, Finns and people with Finnish ancestry place two candles in the window, to show that people would find a safe haven in the house during times of oppression…Happy 104 years of Independence, Finland!!
