Make these homemade Stained Glass Votive Candle Holders in a few easy steps and feel free to customize!


Tissue paper in your desired colors
Matte Finished Mod Podge
Glass container, such as a votive holder, to fit your candle
Paper punches in various shapes (optional)


  1.  Choose your tissue paper and cut the shapes you pick. You can use a paper punch or feel free to cut any shape you please. 
  2. Place some mod podge in a small plastic container and add a bit of water to thin out the texture. It should be thin but shouldn’t be too “drippy”.
  3. Brush a light layer of mod podge on the outside of the glass container and gently place your tissue paper cut-outs with the paintbrush.
  4. Once you have created your desired design on the glass, gently cover it with the Mod Podge. Once your glass is completely covered, set it aside to dry.
  5. After your holder is 100% dry, place a candle inside, light it up and enjoy your new homemade creation!
