This technique can be used to decorate so many things and is an easy kids craft! Today we are going to make a vase. The mod podge makes the tissue paper water resistant. Just brush it over the glass, add the tissue paper circles and add another coat of mod podge.

Kaylee has an unhealthy obsession with flowers, so I decided to enable the obsession a bit more and help her make her own little vase.
Vase or glass jar
tissue paper cut or torn into any shape
She brushed the vase with a light coat of mod podge and began applying small circles of tissue paper to it. You could use ANY shape of tissue paper or even just tear the tissue into small squares or pieces. Mod podge dries quickly, so just work in small sections as you go.
We let the edges over hang so that every edge was covered and just trimmed them later when they were dry.
Every last inch was covered in tissue dots. Layered all over each other, making sure to press them down as we went for a smooth finish.
After it had dried, we added a layer of mod podge on top to seal the vase and water-proof it.
After it dried she had a beautiful little confetti vase. She kept telling me how awesome it was and how fun it was to make. I think we will be making more.
Even though we sealed it to protect it from water dripping on it, it is not dishwasher safe. She added a sweet smelling flower from the front yard, and it was immediately the center of attention on our kitchen table.
We used this same technique to make our tissue paper jewelry holders too!
