JUNE 22, 2020 PATRIOTIC VOTIVE CANDLE HOLDERS
- Glass Votives (I purchased a set with citronella candles included)
- Tissue Paper (red, white, blue)
- Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Star Template
Step 1: Separate out the color of tissue paper you'd like to use, and fold it over several times. Use the star template to cut stars through the layers of tissue paper.
Step 2: Cover the outside of your candle jar with a layer of Mod Podge
Step 3: Add tissue paper stars on the outside of the candle lar. Overlap, or leave some space around to any pattern you like. If the tissues tear, peel off and replace with a new star.
Step 4: Once you have all the stars you want on the candle jar, cover the stars with other layer of Mod Podge to seal them onto the jar. Let it dry completely. Mod Podge will dry clear. Happy July 4th!
