Frosty Centerpiece

The temperature today is only 15 degrees & everything is frosty outside.  This centerpiece was inspired by all of the frosty days in the Winter.  It’s easy to make & only uses 5 items.  The hardest thing about this centerpiece is waiting for the paint to dry.

I hope you’ll give this one a try.

This centerpiece started with a trip to the Dollar Tree.  They got in some new sized goblets.  These are much bigger than their usual goblets.  As soon as I saw them, all of the bells & whistles went off!  There are 2 sizes of the new goblets, so I got 4 large & 1 of the largest ones.  You’ll also need some rhinestone mesh ribbon, a hot glue gun & hot glue sticks.  (use E-6000 if you want to make it permanent)  You’ll also need some scissors.

To make them frosty, I used RUST-OLEUM’s Frosted Glass spray paint.

It took 3 light coats of the spray paint to get it to the look I wanted.  The weird thing about painting with this paint is that it looks almost clear again when you add a new coat.  Once it dries, it looks much more frosted than the previous coat.

Once they dried, I brought them back into the craft room & added the bling.  The rhinestones reminded me of ice.  The rhinestone mesh trim is available at the Dollar Tree as well as Walmart, Joanne Fabrics & Michaels.

I cut the rhinestone mesh into a strip of two wide & hot glued it to the rims of the goblets.  I cut five squares of the rhinestone mesh that were 3 wide x 3 long and then I cut a strip of rhinestones in a single strip.

Once I added the rhinestones to the rims, I went on to the stems.  Using the single strip of rhinestones, I hot glued the end just under the bowl of the goblet.  Then I gently twisted the goblet, swirling the strip down the stem of the goblet.  I used a little bit of glue to the trim to hold it in place and then glued the end of the trim to the base.  Then I glued the 3 x 3 square to the end of the strip to finish it off.

That’s all there is to it!

I set them on a mirror to make them reflect even more.

Add some votive candles & it sparkles like crazy.

Or add some battery operated candles for another look.

Personally, I like the look that the votive candles give, but the battery candles are much safer.

I hope you liked my Frosty Centerpiece.

Happy Creating everyone!
