Last week I took a version of the firework jar craft to our regular home education group. The kids have got fairly good at fimo crafts now and can produce some creative and individual pieces of work with them. I took a bag full of baby food jars, some large bars of soft black fimo and small bars of translucent fimo along with shape cutters of stars, holly leaves etc
As you can see, they all came up with something unique and the jars make very beautiful candle holders. As before, roll out some black fimo and cover the jar, blending the cracks to make it smooth. Ten cut out shapes in the black and gently remove the piece, replacing it with a translucent piece instead. Use a pencil to make holes through to the glass and fill with balls of translucent clay.
A clutch of these on the Christmas dinner table would be a beautiful, memorable table decoration indeed. Yet another perfect use for baby food jars!
