    Sorry for the delay.

    If you are interested in attending this Make & Take, please reply to this thread.

    We have enough materials for 10 builds.

    There will be no cost for this one!

    I'm hoping to make it to the April 15th Make and Take and see what everyone comes up with for the candle build. I recently made some using toilet paper roll tubes and wanted to share my experience. First, I used scissors to cut around one end to give more random look. Then, placed two strips of masking tape in the opening to make a cradle of the approximate depth of the LED Tea Lights.

    Next, I used the mini glue stick gun to apply drips starting with a blob where the drip would end and running a stream up to the top. After repeating this for all sides, I applied melted glue around the inside and outside of the rim.

    After allowing the melted glue to solidify, I removed any small spider web strands of glue and brushed on a black acrylic paint. I also painted around the LED base.

    After letting the black paint dry for a couple of minutes, I lightly went back over the drips with a highlight color. The LED Tea Lights I used were the flameless flicker amber variety and were found on Ebay for under $8 for 24 pieces shipped. For this size tube, I was able to do about one candle per glue stick. Goodwill always seems to have an assortment of inexpensive candle holders available to finish the display.

    Nice end result, Mike!
    I hope you can make it to the meetup. It's been a minute since I saw you.
    I was just thinking about reaching out to you about leading one yourself!
