St. Patrick's Day crafting #4 - rainbow tissue votive

 
 Welcome to Day #4 of St. Patrick's Day crafting!
This is a project that I wanted to make last year but didn't get to
so it had to be on my To Do List this year!

Here is what you need:
1 clear glass votive cup (2 1/8"D x 2 5/8"H)
6 1/2" x 1/4" torn strip of tissue paper in:
  red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple
white glue
foam brush
glass bowl

Step 1:
Put white glue in bowl for easy application (you don't need a lot)

Step 2:
To start paint the bottom half of the votive cup with white glue.
Place the purple strip along the bottom of the cup and brush a thin layer of glue over the tissue.

Step 3:
Overlap the blue strip and glue overtop.
Continue adding strips and glue until you reach the top of the glass...

 ...red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple!

Step 4:
Place on a plastic mat to dry.

Step 5:
Pop in a candle and enjoy the glow of the rainbow!

I'm sure that many of you recognize the sweet gnome leprechaun made with this free pattern from Wee Folk Art!
Wouldn't these crafts look adorable on a nature table? 

 This is Day#4 of a week of St. Patrick's Day crafting,
I hope that you will return tomorrow for my final craft!

  1. Love the candle holder. We've made many using tissue paper and glue. They give off such a beautiful light when lit. Making a rainbow is brilliant :) Is your little leprechaun looking for a pot of gold?
