- Glass jar or candle holder (always make sure that your glass is heat safe!) – we used mason jars, small candle holders and recycled glass jars.
- Red, white and blue tissue paper
- Mod Podge decoupage medium
- 1″ foam brush
- 2 pieces of wire, approximately 14″ long each
- Beads for decoration
- Tea lights or battery operated candles
- Wash and dry your glass jars.
- Cut your tissue paper into small shapes (we used squares, 12″ strips and stars). Cutting several layers of tissue at a time will make cutting easier and save time.
- Use the foam brush to apply a thin layer of decoupage medium to the outside of the glass.
- Place the tissue paper on to the glass, and smooth out any air bubbles by gently rubbing with your finger. Allow to dry completely (at least 30 minutes).
- Apply an additional coat or two of Mod Podge to seal the piece.
- To add an optional beaded handle, wrap one length of wire around the neck of the jar, and twist tightly to secure. With the second piece of wire, make a small, open loop at one end, and wrap it around the first wire. Crimp the loop shut to close and secure. Add decorative beads if desired, and finish by attaching the second end of the wire in the same way.
