Music notes luminary

Music Notes Luminary/pen stand
We had so much fun creating Fish Tank Luminary that we made one for Valentine's Day. My Husband(Mr.J) is a music lover and works on music compositions during his free time. We(CJ and I) made a Music notes luminary as Valentine gift. He liked our gift. Though he is not using it as luminary, Music pen stand decorates his Music table.

Materials Used:
Glass Jar
white Tissue Paper
Gloss-Lustre Mod Podge
Thick Paint Brush
Recycled Styrofoam container to mix up mod podge
Sticko Music notes sticker
Tea light Or LED light

Steps Overview:

Cut white Tissue paper into 1.5 or 2 inches wide and 3 or 4 inches long strips. This time we used smaller length strips.

Thin Mod podge my mixing a small portion of it with water in a Styrofoam container.

Paint Mod podge onto outside of the glass Jar in small sections and lay down a strip of tissue paper and smooth it down as shown below

Complete the whole Jar in the same way. Let it dry

Stick the Music notes sticker and apply a coat of gloss-lusture mod-podge.

Spruce up by Wrapping a Coordinating ribbon to the neck of the bottle.
