Roll out flat about a golf ball sized amount of air dry clay.  Next, cut the clay into a rectangular shape.  I rolled my tea light candle on the clay to make sure it was the right length.

Next, cut your straw into thin pieces.  Note, you will want to cut them the depth of your rolled clay.  Then, press the straw pieces into your clay in a random pattern along the upper section of your clay.  Lastly, use your sharp item to wiggle and pull out the clay from inside the cut out straws.  If the straw pieces come out during this process, it’s fine – simply push them back into the clay.

Tea Light Holder steps

To connect the flat rectangle clay together, use simple clay working techniques.  I put mine together, added a little water with a paint brush and then using my sharp item, did some simple hatch lines across to blend the clay sides together.  After the clay dries, it holds together perfectly.

I love the addition of the colored straws as pops of color to these candles, but it could easily be painted if you don’t have any straws on hand.
