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!
