In addition to lighting up your home, your child can give these candleholders as gifts to light up a friend or relative's holiday.
What to do:
Step One: Dilute a small amount of glue with water in the mixing bowl.
Step Two: Tear the tissue paper into squares.
Step Three: Using the paintbrush, cover the outside of the glass jar with the diluted glue mixture.
Step Four: Lay a piece of tissue paper on the jar. Cover the entire jar with the tissue paper. Try overlapping contrasting colors in some areas, or making a design with the paper.
Step Five: Sprinkle a bit of glitter over the paper to add a sparkly effect.
Step Six: Tie a ribbon around the top of the jar. Add a dab of glue underneath the ribbon to help it stay in place.
Step Seven: Let the jar dry.
Now your candleholder is ready to glow!
