Recycled Craft: Christmas Candle Craft Project for Kids

I am forever looking for ways to use old paper towel and toilet paper rolls for crafts.  We’ve got ours set up as a holiday centerpiece, but you could easily make this into a Hanukkah craft by creating them in different sizes and adding the “flames” each night.

    I made advent wreaths similar to your project. If you use a square of yellow or gold tissue for the flame and stuff it inside the tube like you do when packing a gift bag, the flames can be lit and snuffed simply by pulling the tissue up or pushing it down inside the tube. The fun continues!
