You Will Need:

  • Glass votive
  • Tissue paper in red, blue and white colors
  • White glue
  • Water
  • Foam brush
  • A pair of scissors

How To:

  1. Take the tissue papers and fold them over to create a thick fold. Use the scissors to cut different sized star shapes from the same. Repeat the process with all three shades of tissue paper.
  1. In a separate bowl, mix the white glue with a little water to create a sticky paste. Use the foam brush to take the glue and brush it over the outside of the glass votive.
  1. Next, take the stars one by one and place them on the glass jar over the glue. You can place them one over the other, as they will still allow light to peer through because tissue paper is so thin. You can make a layer of different colored stars and place them any way you like. In case some of the tissue paper stars tear off, you can just remove them from the glass jar and glue another star in its place.
  1. Once you glue all the stars in place, take the foam brush, dip it in the white glue mix and layer it over the stars. It will help to seal your tissue paper stars in place, and they will not fall off. If you see the brush strokes over the stars, do not worry. Once the glue dries, you will not be able to see any more lines over your design.
  1. Use it to light some beautiful candles during your Fourth of July celebrations and send back some as gifts with your friends and family members too.

Tip: If you are having a get together, use such multiple holders to light up the gathering place.
