Simple candlestick holder DIY

Happy Thanksgiving!  So your turkey’s done, the side dishes are taking turns warming up in the oven and you’re ready to set the table.  To create a candlestick holder in a pinch I used dried mung beans in tiny ball jars to hold these beeswax candles in place.  You can use any dried beans you have on hand or pick something pretty from the bulk section of your grocery store (split peas, black beans, white beans, whatever ya like).  Try a mix of different colors if you want.  You could probably even use rice if you don’t have dried beans.  I left the metal rim on the ball jar to make it look a little more finished.  You could also use a small shot glass or brandy snifter if you don’t have jars.
