Frosted Glass Christmas Votives


I finally decided to try my hand at some spray frost....and I have to say, I'm liking everything but the fumes. This set of candle holders turned out just peachy and it was truly easy.....wanna try??

You'll Need:
Frosted Glass Spray (1 can)
Tall Glasses
Christmas Window Cling Decor
+ an *outdoor* place to spray

~Wash your glasses and let them dry. 
~Trim the pieces of plastic window vinyl to make the shapes that you want....and you don't have to stick to the designs that they made, trim out whatever you'd like!! I borrowed the saying "Let It Snow" and some random stars for snowflakes, but I trimmed out some Christmas trees as well.

~Stick the plastic where you want on the glass, smooth it down well so that all parts are firmly attached to the glasses, and bring it outside to spray it. 
~Following the directions on the can, make sure you are in a very breathable area and that there aren't any kiddos around, spray the glasses.
~I gave mine 4 spray applications, waiting in between to dry. 
~Once completely dry, peel off the stickers and......admire what you made. It's so darn cute!!
