Shimmering Candle Holders

I saw this idea on Krylon's website and thought I'd try making some snowflake candle holders. They were really easy to make. The hardest part was deciding what I wanted to put on them.
I made some snowflakes and swirls out of vinyl and applied it to a glass candle holder (be sure to clean the glass, first).
I taped off the outside and spray painted a few light layers of blue on the inside.
After that dried, I removed the tape and carefully taped off the lip and covered the top with more tape. Then, I spray painted the outside metallic silver.
Once it was dry, I carefully removed the vinyl and was left with these!.
So pretty
and easy!
I'm already thinking about some cute designs for Valentine's!

Kelley @ TheGrantLife.com said...

Hi! Visiting from tt&j. These came out great! I love the colors your used.. very wintery. What kind of vinyl did you use?

I would love for you to share this at my Friday link party if you get a chance :)

Seaweed and Raine said...

What a cool idea. I wonder what a person could use if they don't have vinyl and a cutter (Would book covering work?)? Hope you put your valentines version up on Nifty Thrifty Sunday... I'll be on the look out.:)
