|To make, follow the steps listed below....|
2. After washing and drying your candle holders, place the stickers of your choice onto the glass. I just chose a simple heart.
4 & 5. Squirt some of the frost glass paint onto a paper plate. I used Gallery Glass brand which I found at Hobby Lobby. Recommendation: Do not use a colored plate. It may pull some of the color off and mix into the paint. Ask me how I know. ;-)
6 & 7. Dab your sponge brush into the paint. Blot the brush once or twice onto the plate before applying to the glass so that it is not applied too thickly. A quick stippling motion will work perfectly and I suggest letting it dry then slapping on another coat.
8. Once the paint is COMPLETELY DRY, slowly and carefully peel off your stickers and tape. When doing something for myself, I tend to not be patient and somehow expect miracles to happen...like expecting the paint to dry in 1 minute. Against the advice of my husband, I peeled the sticker and tape off while the paint was still, ever-so-slightly, tacky. Unlike me, you should heed my husband's advice and, "Wait a little longer." My candle holder turned out fine but once my anxious fingers started ripping the decal off, I could tell that he was right....I won't tell him if you won't. :-)
9. Pop in a candle and enjoy the "frosty" ambiance.

Have you ever made frosted glass candle holders before? Would you use a heart or something else?
Have a great night and thanks for reading!
