This year I will be concentrating on what we love to do best – making things – and today we’re joining in with the Kid Craft Challenge Blog Hop. We have a super sweet craft to share with you which we think is a great Valentine’s Day craft for kids – to make a Valentine tissue paper luminary.
I admit we’re quite addicted to making these kid-friendly luminaries. There is always a good supply of empty glasses and LED tea lights in our house so this is a fun craft for kids to make and give as a gift.
Easy tissue paper Valentine luminary
First gather your supplies. You will need:
pink tissue paper
empty glass jar
How to craft an easy tissue paper Valentine luminary
Cut or tear your tissue paper into small pieces. We found two shades of paper and made a couple of piles of pieces of paper. We found a heart stamp so cut out some heart shapes too.
When you have plenty of tissue paper you can start to glue it to the jar with Mod Podge.
Add as many layers as you like to cover all of the glass. We added the tissue paper hearts and even the off cuts of tissue paper.
Leave to dry. Then place an LED tea light inside and admire your luminary.
We think they make lovely decorations and great gifts. Splashes of pink are very welcome in our house at this time of the year!
