How to make Frosted Glass Candle Holders

This post about how to make frosted Glass Candle holders and other holiday decor was made possible through Staples. They provided me with some product samples but all the opinions and tutorials are my 100% my own.

If  you have been following Close to Home this holiday season you would have seen the Dollar Store DIY candle Holders I created this fall. Well I could not stop there. I thought of making a romantic candle holders version for Christmas. I was thinking to line the mantels or table top.

For this DIY Holiday Decor project I went to our Dollar Tree again and purchased $2 worth of glass, well $2 for each holder. I then headed to the our craft store, AC Moore is the closest to our house and I had a 50% coupon. I purchased Frosted Glass Spray Paint.

It could not be simpler.

Spray the glass parts with 2-3 coats of the spray paint. When it dries you will acquire the frosted look.

When dry, use the E3000 Glue and attach the glass vase to the candle stick.

Now what to do with these?

I was at our Staples store and noticed they had a pack of Sarah Peyton 4 pc Flameless Set with Timer. I love these flameless candles as you don’t have to worry about fire or removing wax out of your candle holders. They have a real wax coating so if they are not hidden in these deep vases you won’t mind having them visible.

While I was there I also saw the  Sarah Peyton Tree LED with Snow. Looked interesting so I thought I would see what I could do with it.
