Glass jars. They can be canning jars, recycled pickle jars, baby food jars...
Strips of tissue paper. My strips were about 2 inches wide and tall enough to fit whatever glass jar we were using. I just tore the strips by hand. You could also use colored tissue papers.
Two very excited and willing participants...
Some Mod Podge (or other decopauge glue) and foam brushes.
Start by brushing the mod podge over one long strip of your glass jar. Then press the tissue paper to the glue. Smooth out all bubbles and make sure you have enough glue. The glue will dry clear, so using alot of glue should not be an issue.
The kids and I cut holiday shapes from the Cricut with plain cardstock. After your whole jar is tissue papered (is that a word???), add a good amount of glue to the spot you want to add your decoration. Then paste it on. Hold it good a tight for a second, then generously mod podge over the decoration.
Once they are all dry, you can add tea lights to the bottom of all the jars. Line them up...light the candles and enjoy your holiday luminaries!!
I just LOVE how these turned out!!! I added googly eyes to the reindeer after the mod podge was dry. The kids love them, I love them...I think they are a great addition to our holiday decor!!
