Colorful Votive

Pin This

This particular craft is inexpensive because you are recycling kitchen jars! Not only is it very colorful, it makes a wonderful warm light. With just tearing and gluing, even kindergarten aged children can help make it.

Here is what you will need:

  • Glass jar
  • Translucent paper in different colors
  • Decoupage glue
  1. Wash the jars out in hot water and soap to remove any oily or greasy areas.

  2. Tear the translucent paper in small to medium pieces.

  3. Use a ready made decoupage glue and apply a generous amount to the dry glass.

  4. Add one strip at a time starting from the bottom. Once on, apply glue over the strip as well and add the next strip, overlapping a bit over the first strip.

  5. Continue in this manner until the whole glass is covered.

  6. Let the glass thoroughly dry and insert a tea light.
