Matchbox Art....Dolly in the Bed

I had a lot of fun covering another empty matchbox. I used a page from an old children's book. For the pillow, sheets and bedcover, I used a pretty paper serviette, glued on to some light foam to give it a bit of strength and shape. I couldn't resist putting the dolly on a matchstick!!

Another Covered Tea Light Candle Holder

 This time I tried covering the glass with a pretty floral serviette and it looks really lovely with the candlelight shining through. I used Mod Podge to affix the serviette to the glass.

I didn't Mod Podge the outside as I like the texture of the serviette....a bit like linen. Just be careful with your join as that will show through once you light your candle.

Covered Tea Light Candle Holder

I covered a small drinking glass with a page from a vintage children's book. I used Mod Podge to adhere the page to the glass. Once it was dry, I popped in a tea light and lit it. I bought my drinking glasses from an op shop and have made several holders. They make lovely gifts.
