In Ireland, they use candle holders to decorate, so we make candle holders when we study Christmas in Ireland. My amazing assistant traced their hands in advance. You trace their hand so their thumb is up and their fingers are together, but trace around their fingers. Then you add the candle and holly/berries for decoration. We used hole punches for the berries, but it is also pretty with red glitter.
We really enjoy crafts when we are studying Christmas Around the World. All these patterns can be found in my Christmas Around the World Packet!
