Here’s a craft the kids and I worked on for Valentine’s Day: glass jar candle holders. You can customize these with any colors or patterns of tissue paper to match any holiday or décor. They would make perfect gifts for holidays or teacher appreciation. Many of the supplies can also be found at the dollar store – woo hoo!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- glass jars or candle holders
- Mod Podge
- brushes (we used plastic knives instead because we’re out of brushes)
- cookie cutters
- tissue paper in various colors and/or patterns
- battery-operated flameless tea lights
WHAT YOU DO:
Tear pieces of tissue paper to use as your first layer, and stick to the outside of the jar using Mod Podge.
Add a second layer with shapes (trace shapes onto tissue paper using cookie cutters then cut out – or freehand cut out your shapes).
After your candle holder has its final design, coat all tissue paper with a layer of Mod Podge and let dry.
Place a flameless tea light inside the jar, and enjoy!
Our little guy used the tissue paper shapes to make his own Valentine’s Day artwork by gluing hearts on paper…
