Alter a candle to create a quick hostess gift!

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.

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

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.
