Alter a candle to create a quick hostess gift!

Pin It
Whip up a quick hostess gift by altering a simple glass candle. All you need is a few simple supplies and a little creativity. This also works great for small containers of cookies or candy.

Materials:
FolkArt ® Texture Paint - Sparkle
Mod Podge ® Gloss
Glass jar candle with a lid
Decorative paper
Scissors
Foam paint brush
Circle paper punch
Bottlebrush tree
Velvet flowers
Glittered leaves
Rhinestones
Ribbon

Steps:
1. Trim the paper so it fits around the candle. (you may need to piece the paper together) Mod Podge the paper around the outside of the candle. Using a circle punch, punch a circle from the paper. Mod Podge the circle to the top of the lid. Top coat with a layer of Mod Podge.

2. Add texture paint to the bottlebrush tree. Allow to dry. Hot glue the tree, flowers, leaves and rhinestones to the top of the lid. Tie a ribbon around the jar.
