New Year's gifts can be different. We do some of the materials that we find at home, others we buy from the store.

Degreasing of surfaces It's very easy to work with a hand-made article. To begin with, it is necessary to degrease the glass using special means for washing away dishes, as well as for washing. Also, you should treat your glass with alcohol to prevent it. Alcohol will serve as a degreaser and remove unwanted stains. Next - cut out the necessary motifs from the glass, also prepare a motive in order to make rice paper lining for our napkin. In order to conduct further operations for decoupage with a glass, it must be degreased. The process of degreasing is cleaning the surface of various dirt, as well as a layer of fat that is on things that were used before. In order to get rid of an unnecessary layer of grease or dirt, it is enough to use a specialized means with which to wash the dishes. Also, as an alternative and effective option, alcohol is most often used, with which it is also easy to wash the surface.

Motives are parts of the decoupage pattern that will help shape the appearance of the future candlestick. It is necessary to separate the top layer of the napkin, and then "tear" the necessary motifs into pieces for their further gluing. In order to fix the elements - we are preparing a special mixture. It should consist of half of water, half - of PVA glue, with which we will fix our pictures. Preparing the glue, the basis Using the basis of glue, we fix our art on a glass. Rice paper is laid in pieces, it also allows you to overlay paper on each other. Thus, we get a special version of the effect of the glass in the frost. The glass should thus be glued along the entire perimeter, not even forget about the pallet. To rice paper it is necessary to glue ourgraphic pictures with Christmas trees. They will allow to decorate and supplement the future candlestick with bright, New Year colors. Using glitter, we need to draw spirals, or stars inside our candlestick glass. Here you can act as you like. Using small snowflakes, which can be obtained from the napkin illustrations, we make gluing and pasting of graphic elements in all free places of the future candlestick. Next, all work must be covered with a varnish. Lacquering the surface helps protect the product from damage, which will allow you to use it for a long time.
