How to Make

  1. Use a ball candle or make a ball shape from some wax. Make the brown candle paint by mixing half green and half red together in a paint palette. Brush the brown paint onto the candle and let one coat dry before adding a second layer to make the colour darker.
  2. Use yellow paint, straight from the tube, to add a wiggly line around the top of the candle. Fill it in to look like custard. Use silver candle paint to add spots over the surface of the pudding and decorate the top with tiny holly leaves and berries.

Top Tip

You might find it helps to push a cocktail stick firmly into the base of the candle so you can decorate it without touching the sides.
