Valentine’s Votives: candle-holders made from jars and tissue paper
What you’re going to need:
- glass jar
- Mod Podge (or white glue, slightly watered down)
- paint brushes
- tissue paper cut/torn into 1 inch squares
If you’re using Mod Podge, you can get right to it, but if you’re using white glue, you’ll first need to mix a little water into it. Not a lot. Just enough to make it a bit thinner and runnier than it usually is.
What you’re going to do:
The hooligans started by coating their jars with a layer of glue. We used sponge brushes for this. They’re great for soaking up and spreading the glue around, but I’m sure a regular paintbrush would be just fine.
You may have to help really young ones with this final step: With a little glue on the brush, gently tap down any pieces of tissue paper that are sticking out from the glass. This puts a final coat on the jar as well, sealing everything, and adding some shine.
