Tissue Paper Votive Holder

I have always heard that tissue paper could give create a stained glass look, but I wasn’t too sure until I tried it out myself. I couldn’t believe how easy it was! This is cheap to make using scrap tissue paper and votive holders that you can get for a dollar or less.

NEED:Votive Holder With Tissue Paper

  • Tissue Paper
  • Elmer’s Glue
  • Votive Holder
  • Large Paint Brush (sponge brush works great)
  • Permanent Marker (optional)

HOW TO:

  1. Cut tissue paper into 1″ or smaller squares
  2. Brush a thin layer of glue on about half the votive holder
  3. Randomly place the tissue paper onto the votive holder (on the bottom and top, I let the tissue paper hang off and trimmed when I was complete)
  4. Brush more glue on as you work your way around
  5. After you have covered the holder, brush glue over the whole thing
  6. When glue dries, decorate with permanent marker (optional)

What do you think? I was very impressed how it turned out. It doesn’t even look like tissue paper. I am going to try this on a larger scale when I can get to the store to get a hurricane candle holder.
