Valentines voltive candles

These cute voltive candles are easy and fun to make. They also look neat lit up.
valentine colored tissue paper
1 jar
white glue
Paint brush
Cut hearts out of tissue.
Take the tissue color that you choose for the main color of the voltive and measure the amount you will need to cover the jar.
Paint glue onto jar and smooth paper to cover the jar. Cut away any excess paper.
Add heart shapes, or any other shape you would like to the voltive with glue.
Once finished, paint glue over finished voltive and decorate edges with ribbon if desired and let dry.
