DIY candleholder

Тhese great Christmas candleholders were made of salt dough. To prepare your own batch, you will need: a cup of flour, 1/2 cup salt., 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 1/2 glass of water.
Shape a ball of salt dough into a candleholder  as shown. Etch a pretty design with a toothpick (running-stitch style). You can add ball shapes at the end of each beam (make a hole to secure to the main body). Dry in a low oven (do not forget to remove the candle from its metal nest). When the candleholder is dry and cooled (this might take longer as the shape is quite thick), you can paint it with tempera.
