Better late than never, and we are still in the Easter season! This is a very simple Paschal Candle for your home. You will need a tall glass votive with a white candle. It will look better if the glass is clear, but the choice is yours. Print the paschal art and simple wrap it around the glass votive, securing with a bit of tape or glue. Voila! A very pretty, instant Paschal Candle for your home or school room, suitable for even the youngest crafters.
