tissue paper lanterns

Tis the season for lighting candles and keeping cozy! And what better way to create one of kind lanterns and candles holders than with tissues paper and recycled glassware. I can remember as a kid, decorating bottles with colorful tissue paper and I used this process as my inspiration. 

1. Instead of colorful paper I kept it minimal with white tissue and permanent pens. 2. I filled the surface with doodles and drawings. 3. Then, using Mod Podge I covered recycled glass jars with the tissue paper. 


The result is a pretty little collection of lanterns ready for the holiday season!
