Last week Big Brother and I sat down together to work on a little Christmas project while the little ones were sleeping, they turned out so cute I had to share them with ya!
Jar of any size, lid removed (we used a baby food jar and a sandwich pickle jar)
Red tissue paper (cut or ripped into pieces)
Black felt or construction paper
Tab off of a beverage can
Get to it!
Thin the glue a little bit with some water and brush onto jar. Stick pieces of the red tissue onto the jar and work your way around the jar covering the bottom as well and right up to the rim. If your child is having a hard time holding the jar steady, a handy tip is to stick a clean side in a bit of playdough to hold it still.
Once completely covered, brush over top of the tissue with more glue to flatten all the pieces down and seal it together.
Cut your felt to fit around the middle of the jar just wide enough to slip through the can tab and stick the belt onto jar while the glue is still wet.
Let dry upside down on a piece of waxed paper so you don’t mess up the bottom of the jar.
When dry, pop a tealight into the bottom of the jar and light! They look pretty impressive, Big Brother was so excited about it and we used them to set the holiday mood on our table!
