Glittered Felt Candle Ornament

I love how Pinterest comes through for you.  I was not quite sure what we were going to need for a craft for our third grade girls this week at our Women of Grace Wednesday group.  Our fearless leader will be sharing Isaiah 9:2-6 with the girls, as we are beginning our Advent series with them. This passage talks about God's promise of light coming into the darkness. I put 'candle ornament' into the search on Pinterest and up popped this super easy Glittered Felt Candle Ornament. I knew it would be a perfect craft to do with these great kiddos.
Here's what you need: glittered white felt, orange felt, golden yellow felt, thin ribbon or cord, skewer, hot glue (or Elmer's) and scissors (not pictured)
Start by placing the felt with the glittered side down. Position the skewer at the end of the felt and begin rolling tightly. Continue to the end of the felt.
When you reach the end of the felt, run a line of hot glue along the end. Place both ends of the cording into the line of glue and continue rolling the felt, pressing to secure the end to the body of the candle. (If using Elmer's glue, you'll need to wrap it with a rubber band to hold until dry.)
From the golden yellow felt, cut 1 large flame (elongated almond shape). From the orange felt, cut two smaller flame shapes.
 Glue the orange flames to either side of the yellow felt to make it a double-sided flame.
 Remove the skewer from the rolled up candle.
Put some hot glue into the hole and stick one end of the flame into it, using the skewer to press the flame deeper into the hole.
That's all folks! Your Glittered Felt Candle Ornament is finished. I'm so excited to share this with you and the precious girls today. I hope we will all gain a better understanding of Jesus being the Light of the World during this glorious Christmas season.
