Create a pretty candle out of plaster of Paris. We used a snowflake cookie cutter to make a festive 'Frozen' candle. It would make a great gift for Christmas.



Time: 20 minutes plus 24 hours drying time.
Age: 5 to 10s, Over 10s
Level: Medium

Materials
  • Aluminium foil
  • Cookie cutter
  • Plaster of paris powder
  • Tea light candle
  • Glitter
  • Coin

  • Method
  • Scrunch the aluminium foil tightly around the base of the cookie cutter to make the mould.



  • Mix the plaster of Paris powder according to the instructions on the pack. We added 2 parts plaster to 1 part water.



  • Pour the plaster of Paris into the cookie cutter mould and tap gently to release any bubbles.



  • When it starts to set, push a tealight candle into the plaster and weight down the candle with a coin.



  • Share some glitter on top of the damp plaster for some sparkle.
  • Remove the aluminium foil when set.
  • Allow to dry for a further 24 hours then press the plaster candle gently out of the cookie cutter.
