we’d love to see it! Just send your photos and comments to the editor and it may get published on our Facebook fan page !

What you do:

First, tear your tissue paper, sheet music, or other paper into small strips and/or cut magazine pictures into small pieces. Next, brush a coating of Mod Podge onto the outside of the jar. Lay down your first layer of papers. Coat the top of your paper layer with more Mod Podge and continue until the jar has been covered. It is okay to and encouraged to overlap layers. Finish your jar by brushing on a final coating of Mod Podge. Be sure everything has been coated. Rest your votive holders on wax paper to dry. After an hour, flip your jars over to allow the other end to dry. Insert your tea lights or use flame-less candles.
