Tea-light Holders

These tea-light holders were made by covering the vase or jam jar in strips of white mulberry paper and coating it in PVA glue. I then dripped paint on the vase tea-light holder whilst it was upside down to give it a light colouring. On a separate sheet of mulberry paper I stamped the designs I wished to use. I coloured the images in using pigment paints and cut them out. These were also added to my holders using PVA glue. I finished it all over with a final coat of glue and glitter in some places. My gingerbread men have green gems for their buttons, as well as a red gingham ribbon, two little bells and a wooden star coated in gold glitter to add some dimension and finish the items.
