Glowing Hurricane Glasses

Introduction

Wrap hurricane glasses in layers of colorful tissue paper to glowing effect: Although it appears there are multiple tints, only one shade is used.

Materials

  • Assorted hurricane glasses (or similar clear glass cylinders)
  • Tissue paper in assorted colors
  • Tape
  • Small votive candles

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut 4 pieces of 20-by-26-inch tissue paper in half crosswise. Lay flat on a work surface, and make a 1- to 2-inch fold on the bottom of one piece.

  2. Step 2

    Make a larger fold in another piece, and fit it into the fold of the first piece of paper. Repeat process with remaining pieces of paper, making some folds thinner and some wider.

  3. Step 3

    Wrap around hurricane glasses, and then secure with tape. Place a small votive candle in each. Be sure wick is cut short and doesn't come in contact with the paper.
