Stained-Glass Candle Holder

 
Spice up your life (or your bedroom) with this super simple stained glass candle holder.  Easy to make and even easier to enjoy, what a great way to show off your colorful personality…literally!

What you'll need:

Clear Glass Jar/Bottle
Tissue Paper in Assorted Colors
Liquid Glue
Water
Big Paintbrush
Candle

What you'll do:

Clean and dry off your jar.  Mix some glue with a little water so it makes a liquid varnish that can be applied with a paintbrush.  Tear off pieces of tissue paper and paste then one at a time onto the jar using your brush and varnish. Do this until the entire jar is covered. When dry, paint on another layer of glue and let dry.  Place a tea candle inside and enjoy the gorgeous glow.

The rougher the edges and the more the pieces overlap, the better it’ll look, so don’t be afraid of “messing up.”  Experiment with patterned tissue paper for a funkier look.
 
Gift it! Make a few stained glass candle holders--try nesting three different-sized jars inside each other for a cute presentation, or finding some small, plain glass votives at a craft store--for each girl you have in mind, wrap 'em up in cellophane, tissue paper or a gift bag, and add a cute ribbon. Voila!
