There are many creative ways to decorate glass jars and candle holders, with this Stained Glass Jars technique from ‘First Palette’, you can make pencil holders or vases for flowers or even decorate your favorite glass tumblers. This craft project involves outlining your designs first using liquid leading then paining in the inner areas with transparent glass paint which gives it the stained glass look.
