Thursday Crafts For Kids ~ Tissue Paper Candle Holder

candleholder

Colored tissue paper

Pressed flowers or leaves (optional)

White school glue

Small plastic bowl or disposable container

Paintbrush

Glass jar

Markers

What You Do:

Give your child a few sheets of tissue paper and ask them to rip it into small pieces (2-3 inches).

In the small bowl or container, mix ½ cup of white glue with 1 ¼ cups of water. It should form a thin white solution. Give your child the paintbrush and have them cover a section of the jar with a thin coat of glue solution. Repeat, overlapping the tissue paper pieces, until the entire jar is covered. When the entire jar is covered, overlay a few pressed leaves or flowers (if you’re using them), and cover each with a thin coat of glue solution.

Place a battery powered votive candle inside your new hurricane and wrap it up! When the candle glows, it will illuminate the tissue paper and designs, allowing light to shine through them.
