1. Take a ruler and measure the height of the candleholder. Cut a strip of thick paper that is long enough to wrap around the candleholder and tall enough to cover its top.

2. Outline a design or trace a stencil on the paper. Place the paper on top of the cutting board. Use an X-ACTO knife to cut out the image.

3. Cut the tissue paper to fit the size of the other paper.

4. Use the glue stick to glue together the two pieces of paper.

5. Wrap the paper around the candleholder, and glue the two ends together

6. Light the candle.

Warning: Make sure the candleholder is heat resistant. Do not leave the lit candle unattended.
