Patriotic Sand Candles

Very pretty, very easy and not that expensive: Patriotic Sand candles are perfect for your 4th of July table. Put some citronella candles in them for an outdoor feast.

  • Glass drinking glasses (the thrift store is an amazing place to find really fun and interesting glass glasses! Ultra Cheap too - bonus)
  • Votive candle
  • votive holder
  • funnel
  • red, white and blue sand


To make a sand candle, fill a clear drinking glass with enough sand so that a votive candle placed on top falls just below the rim. Set the glass inside a clear glass vase or jar. With a funnel, fill the gap between the two containers with layers of colored sand, using enough to reach the rim of the drinking glass.
