While wandering around the fabric store I stumbled on the aisle with children crafts all marked down 70%. I bought a package of little tissue paper squares in various colors. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them but with a price of $1.20 I figured it was a safe purchase. Being in the beachy- summery mood I decided to stick with it and create something along those lines. I hope you like it and also enjoy the tutorial.
- Tissue Paper (if you can't find the little squares, buy any larger size and cut them the way you want).
- Glass Vase or Candle Holder (the one used in this project came for the dollar store)
- Mod Podge
- Candle (also from the dollar store)
The the paint brush, paint the Mod Podge onto the vase. I did this in sections so I could place pieces of tissue down without worrying about the Mod Podge drying.
I placed all of the blue pieces down and then went over the entire vase again with another coat of Mod Podge. To dry, I placed it on a paper towel.
I cut the pieces that overlapped off with a razor blade after the entire vase dried.
Next I cut out random pieces of yellow tissue paper. I cut out circles and triangles of different sizes. To keep it modern I tried NOT to be neat with the shapes. I wanted it to be artsy.
After I was done with the yellow shapes I painted another layer of Mod Podge.
I wanted a contrasting color and decided to add a little black, again using random placement and haphazard shapes.
After all the black tissue shapes were placed, I painted on one last coat of Mod Podge and set to dry overnight.
And here is the finished product with a lit candle.
