Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 10

Another home decor project!  Diane's tea light candle holder is gorgeous!

Sketch 108
Diane's Tips:   At a time of year when most people are extra busy with the festivities of the season, I like to slow down and spend time at home with my family.  We hang out together in the family room enjoying a movie or fun activity together surrounded by the warm glow of Christmas lights and candles.  For my project, I wanted to create a home decor piece that I could enjoy while at home.  I decided to make a tea light candle holder by covering a recycled glass jar with tissue paper using Mod Podge.  After the tissue paper dried, I embellished the jar using card Sketch #108 as my guide, omitting the paper along the bottom so it wouldn't block the glow of the candle.  I also created a couple smaller coordinating tea light holders.  I covered one jar with red tissue paper and the other with a page from an old dictionary.  To finish them off, I tied a piece of tinsel trim around the top of the jars.

SOURCES  Tissue paper: Pink Paislee (green), Patterned Paper: October Afternoon, Chipboard: Girl's Paperie (snowflake), Letter Stickers: American Crafts, Trim: Webster Pages, Pinked Filter: Fancy Pants, Ink: Prima
