1. Pour about 1 inch of red sand into the bottom of the cup.

2. Pour a similar amount of white sand on top of the red.

3. Finish with a layer of blue sand and position a votive candle in the middle, twisting the candle into the sand so that it is flush with the top of the sand.

4. Repeat, making as many votives as you want for your party!
