My preschool teacher friend, Molly, made these adorable candle holders with her students last week. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to post them on the blog. They are so easy to make!
- A glass jar of some type. Could be an old baby food jar, a canning jar or any other used glass jar.
- Mod Podge – gloss finish
- Paint brushes or foam brushes
- Tissue paper of various colors, cut into pieces
- Optional: Ribbon, stickers, glitter glue
- Have your child cut or rip the tissue paper into pieces (the size depends on the size of the jar you are using).
- Paint Mod Podge onto the jar and place the tissue paper over the wet area.
- Cover entire jar with tissue paper pieces. Create overlaps with the tissue paper.
- Once jar is covered, thinly coat the tissue paper with Mod Podge and let dry.
- Optional final touches: Tie a ribbon around the jar, add stickers or add shimmer by painting on glitter glue.
- So simple and so adorable. Use a standard tea light candle or a flame-less candle to illuminate!
What is the best Mother’s Day gift you have ever received or given?

Thanks! I’m learning that kids seem to love anything that involves scissors and glue. 🙂

Adorable. the best gifts for me were always the ones from my kids. I still have a lot of them
Aww that’s sweet. Yeah, I have a box of stuff my daughter has drawn, painted and made and she’s only 2! I need to learn to be selective or I’ll be in big trouble…
