"Stained Glass" Votive Holders

Tissue Paper (any colors you want)
Mod Podge (matte finish) - In a pinch, you can use school glue
Glass containers to fit your candles
Paper punches in various shapes
  1. Cut out the tissue paper shapes that you want. Punch out quite a bit, you can always do more later if you didn't cut enough.
  2. Water down some Mod Podge (not super drippy, but thinned-out).
  3. Start putting your tissue paper shapes onto the glass using your paintbrush.
    • Tissue paper is so thin you can pick up the pieces with the wet paintbrush.
    • You can brush Mod Podge onto glass first, then stick the paper shapes, just brush over the shapes again afterward so they are saturated.
    • Tissue paper rips easily so do not be rough, take your time and brush gently.
    • You can overlap shapes if you prefer.
  1. Once you are done decorating the glass, set it aside to dry.
  2. Once dry, any areas not covered with tissue paper will look frosted.
    • If you'd prefer the areas to be clear, simply dip a Q-tip in hot water and carefully scrub off the Mod Podge.
  3. Place a candle into your glass container, and enjoy.
