Have you seen the idea about Mod Podging tissue paper to candles? I did, and I thought I'd give it a shot.
I think I love it! It's not really a difficult project either. You just need some patience...and Mod Podge.
First, I trimmed the tissue paper to fit the candle. I started the paper about a half inch from the top, so that the recipient could burn the candle if she chose to.
I painted Mod Podge on the candle and carefully smoothed the paper down. My paper did tear a little, but I sealed it together with the Mod Podge, and you can't even tell.
I left the bottom a little long, and wrapped it neatly underneath. That part was sealed with Mod Podge as well.
After letting it dry, I added raffia for the final touch.
That tissue paper is one of my favorites. It makes me happy how the paper blends with the candle. I can picture it in a home office or study. What do you think?
