To make your own Christingle:
You will need:
A square of silver foil (75 mm/3″ square)
Red tape, ribbon or strip of red crepe paper
Sweet and/or dried fruit
Instructions: (with adult supervision, please!)
If the orange does not sit flat, cut a small slice off the bottom
Cut a small cross in the top of the orange.
Wrap a piece of red tape, ribbon or strip of red crepe paper around the middle, and pin into place.
Lay a square of silver foil (75 mm/3″ square) over the small cross cut in the top.
Place a wax candle on top of the foil and wedge it firmly into the orange (the foil catches the hot wax).
Thread sweets and/or dried fruit onto 4 cocktail sticks and push these into the orange around the base of the candle.
Now you are ready to join our Christingle Service at 4pm on Christmas Eve.
Safety Disclaimer: Lighting candles can be dangerous. Children should always be supervised by an adult.
