Water Bottle Luminaries – 7th

My seventh grade students created these luminaries by upcycling a water bottle!  First the students created and colored their underwater designs onto a half sheet (9″ x 6″) of acetate using sharpies. The bottom of the water bottle is filled with a little bit of sand and a candle, and the colored acetate is wrapped around and held together with clear tape. They look beautiful all lit up. (Real tealights should not be left burning unattended.)
