  • Candle
  • Color stone (Can buy at Daiso or Stationary shop)
  • Handicraft Glue
  • Color that you want
  • Sponge

Let’s start…  

First begin to clean and make your glasses clear, then prepare your materials as a list above, I would like said some material you can find so easily at Daiso, stationary shop or at home.

Second step, I start to stick handicraft glue around the glass, then I take a slightly damp sponge. This step please be careful, don’t need to use a lot of water, just a little bit is enough.

After that, I take a damp sponge dipped in color and lightly tinted round a glass about 2-3 times or do it again until you can see color clearly and left it dry.

After color dry, you can put another color into it again, like a mix color together, however it depend on your idea that how to decorate it more beautiful?
