There are years where the Holidays, especially Christmas, seem to come and go so quickly. For me, last Christmas flew by so fast that I barely had a chance to create anything . I did make a wall mounted advent calendar and a no sew ribbon tree skirt, but still not as much as I would have liked. This year I made myself a promise to start crafting things for the Holidays as soon as November started. I’m quite happy to say that I stuck to my promise! YAY!
A few weeks back when I received my box of October supplies from the 12 Months of Martha program, there was a set of Berry Branch Stickers that I instantly knew I wanted to use on a Christmas Craft. They would be perfect to decorate vases that I was planning on etching and using them as candle holders.
Etched Candle Holders – Christmas Decor
– Cylinder Glass Vase(s)
– Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Etching Cream & brush
– Plastic gloves
– Martha Stewart Crafts Berry Branch Stickers
Step 1: Take out all the supplies you will need to create the project. Make sure the vase(s) is clean and free of dust.
Step 2: Put on plastic gloves and apply a very thick layer of Glass Etching Cream onto your vase(s). Use a brush to smooth it on. (I found that having my husband pour the etching cream onto the surface as a brushed it on worked very well).
Step 3: Leave the glass etching cream on the surface for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes are up, rinse off the etching cream under running water. Let dry.
Step 4: Place the Berry Branch Stickers onto the etched vase(s) and insert a candle.
And voilà, you now have beautiful Etched Candle Holders perfect for the Holidays!
Have you started crafting/creating things for the Holidays?
Hope you are having a BEAUTIFUL day!
P.S. I’ll be linking to these Parties.
