I saw this done in this month's issue of Women's Day Magazine.
Empty glass jars
Orange tissue paper
Black construction paper
Measure strips of tissue paper and cut to fit the size of jar. Brush glue on a small section and adhere tissue paper. The article said to dilute the glue to 3 parts glue, 1 part water. We just winged it. We overlapped a little bit. Cover the outside of the jar and let dry. Cut out shapes in black construction paper and glue onto the jar. Apply glue to entire jar to seal and let dry over night. Article said to place battery operated votive candles in but we just used real tea lights.
Cutting her paper
My 19M old could care less about this one.
Still working away on her playdough. LOL
Oldest takes a break to play, too.
Back to the candles
Picking glue off the fingers was fun, too!
Cutting off the excess. She is very meticulous!
I did the big one... oldest did the little one
I loved the way these came out, I ended up making a bunch and putting them on our mantle... all with stuff we had on hand at the house. Take that pottery barn! :-) My daughter's candle is on the far left. She decided to use orange construction paper for her design so it didn't show up so well... and that is OK! :-)
