— ruler,
— pencil,

— wooden skewers,
— different sweets, marmalade, paste which you'll string on the skewers.

How to Make:

1. Wrap the styrofoam with packaging paper. It'll be the basis for candle. You'll put the skewers into the basis — the skewers will easily pierce the styrofoam and be held on well there.

2. Our candles will be made not from the wax but from the marmalade and paste. Look at the sweets which are lying in front of you carefully and make your minds which you want to place at the bottom of the candles, in the middle or on the top. It's better to start with the paste. Atop leave a bit of place for «a flame»

3. Cut out the templates for a flame, a drop out of any cardboard or thick paper. Drop templates will be of 3 sizes: the biggest ones — for red paper, average — for orange, small — for yellow.

4. Take the sweets and outline the drop templates. Cut out the big paste or marmalade drops and put them aside. Make the same with the orange and yellow sweets — but now outline the average and small templates.

5. Now make «the flames»: onto the red marmalade drops put the orange and atop — the yellow ones.

6. String them onto the skewers. Cut off the ends of the skewers, if they are too long: they shouldn't be seen out of «the flames».
