Frosted Glass Love
I first discovered the magic of frosted glass spray paint earlier this year when I made beautiful frosted glass bottle winter decor using the many wine and champagne bottles that we had leftover from the holidays. Little did I know at the time that it was going to be the start of an obsession. No glass vessel is safe in the farmhouse now!
As I was cleaning out my cabinet that holds my vases, hurricanes, and candle holders, I was shocked at how many pieces I had. Most of them were glass. My wheels are always spinning when it comes to DIYs and crafts, particularly when I start to wonder how I can use things I already have in the farmhouse. I wanted to use some of the glass hurricanes and candle holders for simple and beautiful Valentine’s Day decor. Initially, I thought I would just add some pink and red candles to them, but that just didn’t seem like enough though oomph. That’s when it hit me! I could frost the glass.
What You Need to Make Frosted Glass Heart Candle Holders
With just a few simple items, you can make these beautiful frosted glass heart candle holders in minutes. Here is what you need:
- Glass candle holders
- Frosted glass spray paint
- Vinyl heart decals
- Painter’s tape
- Gloves (optional)
If you don’t have any glass vessels to use for this project, you can find very inexpensive ones at a dollar store or a thrift store.
How to Make Frosted Glass Heart Candle Holders
First, using painter’s tape, tape off the inside rim of the candle holder. This will help prevent overspray on the inside of the vessel.
Next, apply your vinyl decal(s), in this case, I’m using hearts. Be sure the decals are firmly adhered to the glass making sure the edges of the decals aren’t lifting or bubbling. If there is any lift or bubbles on the edges of the decals, the frosted glass paint can get underneath which will result in the outline of the heart not being crisp and clear.
Then, in a well-vented area, place the glass vessel on cardboard or newspaper. Hold the spray can upright about 10-inches from the glass vessel and spray the frosted glass spray paint steadily in a back and forth motion. The paint will dry in about 10 minutes.
Finally, once the paint is completely dry, carefully remove the decal(s).
Voila! Add a candle inside and now you have a beautiful frosted glass candle holder to use in your home to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Styling these frosted glass heart candle holders is so fun! They look great on an entryway table, a kitchen or dining table, a coffee table, a shelf, or a kitchen island. These candle holders also look beautiful styled in a vignette on a tray. Use these sweet home decor pieces to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The neural and simple look of these frosted glass heart candle holders makes them perfect to leave out throughout the rest of the year.
I hope you enjoy making these as much as I do!
