Beauty of the Season Candle Holder

I got this idea from Sandy Dailey, who described the technique on how to transfer a stamped image onto a glass surface.
Since I wasn't sure how my candle holder would turn out, I went shopping at the REstore and bought 2 glass jars for 50 cents a piece.  They actually turned out quite nice.





The image was stamped using Memento ink onto tissue paper from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and coloured using blendabilities.
I cut the tissue paper so that there was 1" extra over the top, covered the bottom, and overlapped 1/2" around.
Mod Podge was applied to the surface of the glass and the tissue paper gently wrapped around the glass candle holder.  A layer of Mod Podge was applied to the surface, and when dry I used a craft knife to remove the excess tissue paper at the top.  I then applied a second coat of Mod Podge.

This glass jar did not have a lid on it, but it did have a lip, so I wrapped a Real Red ribbon around the top and tied it into a bow.

I don't have a flameless candle yet, but I can just imagine what this will look like with it fluttering inside!
