What you will need: 20 oz soda bottle(I used diet pepsi) Exacto knife Scissors Model car/airplane paint Thin ribbon Silk or dryed flowers Ready: Take off the middle paper of a 20 oz diet pepsi bottle. Now you will see a line towards the bottom of the bottle with swishes like icicles hanging down. Cut with your exacto knife to get you started, then use your sissors to make a nice straight edge around. This is now your candle cup. Paint with the model paint in gold and then when dry, paint with white the icicles hanging down. Insert a glass candle votive and a tea candle and enjoy ! For the top, find the line with swishes going up. Cut around that line with the exacto knife and finish off with your sissors. I didn't add a bottom, the tall candles just stayed right at the neck and stood up straight because of the round bottom. Paint with the gold paint, let dry. Tie a little ribbon at the neck, with a bow and add some dry or silk flowers. Viola - two candle holders recycled from the trash and made into treasure!
