How to Make a Thanksgiving Candle

Today I’m going to continue with some Thanksgiving crafts by showing you how to make a Thanksgiving candle.   This candle is very easy to make, but it turns out beautifully.  You will see how just by adding some seeds to an average candle can make it into something spectacular.  Make a bunch of these and add them to your Thanksgiving table or put them around the house as Thanksgiving decorations.  Either way it will look beautiful.  So, let’s get started.
