These home made holders can ramp up your parties ambiance, and if you use a Citronella candle it can help keep bugs away! To make your own you will need scissors, tape, a pen or pencil, a sheet of paper, nails in different sizes, a hammer and a tin can.
Step One: Fill your tin can with water and freeze it overnight.
Step Two: Draw the pattern you’d like on a sheet of paper and tape it to your can

Step Four: remove the paper and use warm water to melt the ice. Drop a candle in and your finished!
