Christmas Candle Vases
by Sandra Hricik
(Palm Harbor, Florida, USA)
Christmas Bird Vase
LED candles or tea lights
Christmas Tissue Paper or Christmas Napkins
Glitter Bling Beads/Snowflake Stickers
Finishing Gloss Spray
Tear tissue paper into various sizes;
if using napkins (as I did with my Chickadee Vase)
separate the white backing from the napkin)
Spread Mod Podge using sponge brush onto vase and
apply tissue paper. Be gentle and try to rub out
any bubbles. If you have some 'wrinkles,' don't worry
as this gives the appearance of a 'crackled' look.
Keep applying tissue paper until vase is covered.
If using a napkin, use same procedure; however, depending
on design, cut out bigger pieces and apply to vase.
Let dry for 1 hour and recoat with Mod Podge.
Apply bling beads, snowflake stickers or ribbons using craft glue. (There are many Christmas stickers you can buy
from Michael's or JoAnn's Craft stores for different looks).
Spray vases with clear finish gloss that is quick drying
and provides a protective hard finish.
Insert the LED or tea lights inside the vases. You can
also insert the lights into a small glass candle holder
before placing into the actual vase.
