Our Family Motto

We, the Peterson Family:

Promise to be honest in all we do and say,

Stand tall and righteous throughout each day.

Serve around the world and in our home,

Give thanks for blessings we’ve been shown.

We’ll work as a team with joy and love,

And honor our Heavenly Father above.

Patriotic Candle

Red, white, and blue tissue paper
White craft Glue
Thicker Paint Brush
Empty Glass Jar
Sparkles (optional)
Votive candle

Mix white craft glue with enough water to make a thin, paintable solution that is not see through, mixture should be white. With your paintbrush, paint the glue mixture onto the jar. (Work in sections as the glue will dry before you get to it if you paint the whole thing.) Paint a section with glue mixture, place pieces of material onto the layer of glue, cover material with more glue mixture. Material will be wet, but not dripping. Continue until the entire jar is covered, pieces are placed on quite randomly. Let dry. When finished, put a votive candle inside and watch the red, white, and blue glow!
