 2. Using the petal shape that I've previously cut (let's assume you have cut it before), trace it onto the empty rolls.


 3. Once you've traced the petal shape onto all five tissue rolls, cut them out.

4. This part takes the longest time. Paint each petal one by one. Start with a coat of white paint as a primer.
5. Next, use the paint colors you've chosen. I used four colors ranging from dark pink to light pink. Mix a bit of pink and white paint for the lightest shade to achieve the desired color.


6. After painting, take the container you'll use for the candle holder and glue the painted petals onto it. Make sure to arrange them from the lightest to the darkest shade for a gradient effect. Your gradient candle holder is now complete. Enjoy!


Turning empty tissue rolls into a pretty candle holder is a fun way to recycle and decorate your home. Just follow these easy steps: cut the rolls, paint them, and stick them onto a container. It's up to you which design or colors you want to use. It's a great project for the whole family and helps reduce waste too. So, next time you have some empty rolls, don't throw them away—turn them into something beautiful instead!
