You light up my life....

with Tissue Paper Candle holders! In a green and light green color scheme for St. Patricks Day of course!

I bought three glass containers at the thrift store for 29 cents a piece! Can't get much better than that since we have no need for baby food jars anymore.

This project was a little too time consuming for him though and frustrating when the tissue paper stuck more to his fingers than the glass but I jumped in and helped him and we got three pieces done.

First, he ripped up the tissue paper into small pieces. He then helped me mix the white glue and water. We did equal parts of each.

Then, since we couldn't find the big paintbrush he used the heart sponge from an earlier project to sponge the glue mixture on the glass. Then he stuck on some tissue paper and more glue...etc etc until the glass pieces were covered!
