This colorful tissue paper stained glass candle holder is so simple to make but fun for every age.
A variety of colors made this very simple and inexpensive project "pop" with color and light. It was made quickly and dries within minutes.
Believe it or not, I made one of these in a high school speech class for a demonstration speech. I loved it then and I love it now.
I use a couple of them for Christmas decorations every year but they can be made for any season.The kids loved seeing the light twinkle through the jar.
“Oooo- it really looks like a stained-glass window, Nana!”
Indeed it does!
