All you need to make this Upcycled Tissue Paper Bottle Vase are materials that you probably have around the house already.

How to Make an Upcycled Tissue Paper Bottle Vase:

  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paint brush

For this craft, we recycled the class bottle and purchased the rest of the supplies at the dollar store.

First, use the scissors to cut the tissue paper into squares that are about one inch by one inch. Cutting the tissue paper is a great way for young children to practice cutting and developing their fine motor skills.

Next, use a paint brush to spread glue all over the glass bottle or jar. You may want to only do one side at a time to prevent getting glue on your hands.

Then, place the tissue paper squares on top of the glue so the entire bottle is covered. You may want to put more than one later of tissue paper on the bottle depending on the thickness of the paper. We used blue, neon green, yellow, and pink tissue paper but you can use any color combination.

After the glue dries, cover the bottle or jar with another later of glue. Let the second coat of glue dry completely. It may take a few hours to dry and harden.
