The candle holders are decorated with a glued-on waistband of straw silk paper with a pattern of holes, made with a screw punch. Use the same procedure on the straw silk paper when making cone-shaped egg warmers.

Guide step 1
1.
Waistband for the candle holder: Roll a piece of straw silk paper around the glass for measuring the circumference. Mark with a pencil and cut to size, except for the height which must be torn off. See the next step below.
Guide step 2
2.
Tear off the edge vertically using both thumbs and index fingers on either side of the pencil mark. Erase any left over pencil marks.
Guide step 3
3.
Use a screw punch for making a holed pattern all over the straw silk paper.
Guide step 4
4.
Apply decoupage lacquer for glass and porcelain on one side of the holed straw silk paper.
Guide step 5

Attach the straw silk paper to the candle holder – one small area at a time. Carefully smooth out with a dry and clean brush. For a harder surface, bake the decorated candle holder in a household oven for 30 min. at 150-160°C.
