perfect gift for kids to make and give
The five-year-old that did this glass did it for approx 10 minutes (with me finishing the coating). Older children with a longer attention span would be more able to do a larger glass which then would of course require more time.
Flat sides, as apposed to fancy glasses with small ridges, would likely be easiest.
Use as a flower vase or candle holder.
Rip various colours of tissue paper into shapes approx 1cm by 1cm.
Use a brush to apply glue to a small area of the glass. Place paper (no need to make sure it's flat or perfect).
Brush glue over the paper and the glass area next to it. Place another paper, overlapping the first.
Continue until the outside of the glass is covered: DO NOT COVER THE INSIDE.
If paper does not appear to be fully stuck down add more glue. The glue will dry clear and add a glaze so don't worry about it looking funny.
