  • Martha Stewart Crafts Acrylic Craft Paint in Poodle Skirt and Ballet Slipper

  • Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Durable Gloss Finish

  • Martha Stewart Crafts Basic Brush Set

  • Tissue Paper in similar colors as paint

  • Glass Votive Candle Holder


  1. Brush Martha Stewart Crafts paint in Ballet Slipper and/or Poodle Skirt onto a glass votive. Let paint dry completely.

  2. Cut strips of tissue paper into different widths. Apply strips of tissue paper with decoupage medium.

  3. Experiment with layering paint over the decoupaged tissue. The look is meant to be abstract and random.

  4. Tip: Take this project to the next level by making your own candle!
