Create a faux stained glass look with Mod Podge tissue paper stained glass. This is one of the easiest decoupage projects you’ll ever do.
I get asked quite frequently how to Mod Podge tissue paper without wrinkles. Honestly, I feel that for most people (including myself) it’s pretty difficult. Especially when the tissue paper is in large sheets!
Tissue Paper on Glass
But there IS a way to Mod Podge tissue paper on glass to get a faux stained glass effect WITHOUT wrinkles! You’re going to cut that tissue paper down from big sheets into shapes. Let me show you what I did.
At one point in my life I got ahold of some cool glass jars with fitted lids:
I liked them but not plain – I wanted to spice them up a bit. So what is a Mod Podger to do? Well, of course, decoupage them with tissue paper.
I love tissue paper on glass because with the light, it gives a bit of a faux stained glass look. As you can see from my first pictures. So how did I do it?
I find that I can only use a punch with tissue paper if I punch multiple pieces of paper at a time AND include a piece of regular paper. Otherwise the tissue paper just kind of folds into the punch. Keep that in mind!
The Sizzix is nice just because it cuts out a lot of tissue paper at once. In various sizes.
Once you have the circles, Mod Podge them down (very carefully so they don’t tear).
Layering circles of different colors of tissue paper gives them a cool effect.
Once you are done layering, apply a final coat and let both containers dry.
The Mod Podge tissue paper on glass creates a beautiful effect when the light shines through!
These updated containers are so colorful, and you can make them with any shades of paper and shapes that you like. I’m partial to the blue . . .
