Baby food jars or jam jars
Scraps of tissue paper
Diluted paste or glue
Clean the jars well and let dry. We use small jars, and sometimes have to check the size of the votive candle to make sure it will fit. Have the children brush the glue onto the jar and place different colors of tissue paper over the glue, overlapping so the entire jar is covered on the outside. The glue will appear to be white but will dry clear and when a candle is lit inside will give off a pretty color and design. Great for gift time, Mother's Day (use Mom's favorite colors, Christmas use red and green, etc.)
