Making these decorative glass jars and bottles with a simple stippling technique is a fun way to upcycle trash. Use these pretty containers as DIY candle holders or for packaging up homemade food gifts.
Once complete, put a votive candle or tea light in each jar or fill with food gift.
Tip: By sticking with just three or four colors, your DIY candle holders will look great together no matter how many family members contribute their original designs. This is especially good if you're making a menorah that will be displayed together.
You can use the little jars of 3-D paint for this project. Those are probably easier for kids to use. Or you can use a small paint brush dipped in glass paint. Dip the paintbrush in enough paint that there's a bit of excess on the tip of the brush. Carefully dab the end of the brush onto the jar or bottle, transferring a dot of paint.
It's a good idea to use a scrap of paper to practice on first.
Allow enough time for dots to dry in between sections to avoid accidentally smearing the pain.
