Paper straws, color and pattern of your choice
Yellow tissue paper
Just cut your straws in half, so that you have a good candle size. Cut your yellow tissue paper into about 3x3 squares. If you desire, you can glitter the edges of the paper to give your candle a little sparkle!
Take the center of your paper and just kind of scrunch it to form a flame. Then take a dab of glue and stick it in the top your straw...and you have a perfect birthday candle!! These would also look so cute on top of a cake, using all different patterned and colored straws too!!
