Tall glass candle holder (cylinder)
1 sheet black lace scrapbook paper (swirls with cutouts)

Instructions

  1. Clean glass cylinder with glass cleaner or alcohol.
  2. Tear tissue papers into 1½ inch pieces.
  3. Using Mod Podge, decoupage the outside of the candle holder starting from the bottom with the orange tissue paper, randomly overlapping the paper as you work. Once you are 1/3 of the way up from the bottom, begin to use the lighter color paper and finish by allowing the papers to extend over the top of the candle holder; allow to dry.
  4. Cut the excess paper from the top of the candle holder using the craft knife.
  5. Measure and cut the black lace scrapbook paper so that it fits around the candle holder and is approximately 1 inch shorter than the candle holder.
  6. Decoupage the black paper onto the orange tissue paper leaving about 1/2" margin at the top and bottom.
  7. Finish the entire candle holder with a coat of Mod Podge for a glittery, elegant look.
