Pretty Valentine Jar Luminaries

Valentine's is upon us!  I was tasked with creating some romantic jars to celebrate the season.  They are one of the easiest crafts you can make and the results are so magical!  Also, I've never met a jar craft I did not like, so I was ready for the challenge.  Here's how you can also get the look! :)

What you need:
Aleene's Decoupage Medium in Matte (You can also use Collage Pauge in matte)
– Tissue paper in a variety of colors
– Small mason jars
– Scissors
– Lace ribbon and/or twine
– Newspaper (to cover your work surface)

Cut up small strips of paper from your stack of tissue paper.
Now add a coat of your Aleene's Decopauge to your jar using your paintbrush.

Press the strips of paper in place on the white jar, smoothing any air bubbles out with your finger or brush.
I cut up 1" strips of the red tissue paper and arranged them in a chevron fashion.  Don't worry, any overlapping areas of the tissue paper won't show much when you've collaged them on!

For another jar, I cut out polka dots with the tissue paper.

...and collaged on a photo from my wedding day!
For the final step, adorn your jar using twine or lace!  Such a pretty look for Valentine's Day!
