Today I want to show you a creative decorating idea to turn a usual glass into a Christmas candle holder.

For this craft, I used kirigami technique, to cut fir trees and stars out of a sheet of paper that I glued around a glass.

First of all, I measured the height of the glass to cut a band of the same width.

I put the band around the glass to check its length and keep just 1 cm more than necessary to turn round the glass (to glue the band at the end of the craft) and cut off the rest.

Then I draw marks to get four areas where I’ll draw Christmas designs. At the left and the right of the paper, there are areas that will be glued. Then I separate the rest at the middle, separate again both of the large parts.

I get 4 sections in which I mark once again the middle to draw double vertical lines. (Don’t press too hard on your pencil because you’ll have to erase evyrithing at the end…)

Then I can draw symetric designs on each side of the double lines.

I use a cutter to follow the lines I’ve just drawn and take care not to cut through the double line.

Then I use a crochet hook and score the vertical lines from the top to the bottom of the designs.

 

Now, it’s time to carefully erase every mark of pencil without tearing the paper.

Turn it on the other side and fold the designs out.
