Glitter and Tissue Mother’s Day Vase Craft

glass-jars

Do your kids want to gift mom with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day? Instead of just a tissue-wrapped dozen roses or other blooms, give mom a kid-made vase too. Before you buy a ready-made vase, check out the easy how-to steps for creating an imaginative, artsy version.

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • A washed and dried large glass jar- Use a tomato sauce or mason jar for this kids’ craft. You can also use colorful glass jars for a special holiday look!
  • Colorful tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • A paintbrush
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Glitter in rainbow colors

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Cut the tissue into squares, hearts, or other shapes. Your child can also tear the tissue by hand. Create a variety of sizes and shapes.
  2. Cover the outside of the jar with a wash of clear glue. Pour the glue onto a thick piece of reused cardboard or a paper plate. Your child can dip their paintbrush into the glue and paint the outside of the jar. They can also work section-by-section, painting one area of the jar at a time.
  3. Press the tissue onto the glue. Let the glue dry completely.
  4. After the glue dries, your child can paint another layer of glue on top to add shine.
  5. Sprinkle glitter on the wet glue. Let the glue dry again before you add flowers to the vase.
