Tissue paper in your desired colors
Mod Podge (Here’s a homemade Mod Podge recipe that’s great)

Paintbrush
Scissors
Glass containers to fit your candle(s), 
I used thrifted vases and wine tumblers
Q-tips, 
optional
Candles (We use flameless b/c we have toddlers.)

**Note:  This can look really professional if you have paper punches.

 

 Step One: Cut out (or punch out) shapes from your tissue paper.

Step Two:  Mix a little extra water in your Mod Podge.

Step Three: Paint the Mod Podge on your glass.  Then stick your tissue shapes on to the glue.  Then Mod Podge over the top again.  Let dry completly.

*Note: Wet tissue rips easily.  Be gentle.

Step Four: Once dry, you can wet the Mod Podge and wipe any areas off.

Step Five: Enjoy with your candle!!

Just as she was realizing some of her professional goals, she decided to give it all up for a family. Although Jennifer has lived in Miami and L.A., she has always called Nebraska home. She always knew she wanted to raise her children in the Midwest.
Jennifer is now trying to find her way in a new world. She may be frenzied and frazzled sometimes, but she would not give up being a mom to her almost four year old and her almost two year old for anything.
