More jar upcycling (and no twine in sight!)

After the success of my napkin covered pickle jar tea light holder, I decided to use the same idea to recycle what was left from a Christmas candle... the glass jar ... to create a faux stained glass effect.
I simply punched out different sized circles of red and purple tissue paper (sandwiched in between normal paper, so it wouldn't tear when punched). 
Then using a brush, I randomly applied the circles to the glass with PVA, covering all four sides.
It took a couple of hours to dry (I got a little brush-happy with the PVA!), but it was worth the wait.
And not only can it be used as a vase, it also works well as a tealight holder...
