I was thinking about what I could do this year that might be a little different. Then I remembered a craft I had done with my fourth grade students many years ago…frosted candle holders.
- A glass jar (I recycled an empty Oui yogurt jar for this project.)
- Removable vinyl. When I made these with my students, I gave them a piece and let them cut out their own designs. For mine, I made some simple hearts and a “Be Mine” message in Cricut Design Space and cut it out using my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine.
- Rustoleum Frosted Glass Spray Paint
- Begin with a clean jar. I love to use recycled Oui yogurt jars. These are the same jars I used for my DIY Faux Mercury Glass Votive Holders.
- Using removable Cricut vinyl, cut out your own design. I have shared mine with you in Cricut Design Space.
- Next, place your vinyl design onto your jar, smoothing it as you go.
- In a well-ventilated area, lightly spray the exterior of the glass jar with Rustoleum Frosted Glass Spray Paint. (Be sure to follow the directions for using the spray paint.)
- Let your jar sit for about 10-15 minutes. The frosted glass effect will be seen in about 5-10 minutes.
- Then, carefully peel off your vinyl to expose your design.
- Lastly, add a tealight and enjoy the glow!
As I said, this was such a fun Valentine’s Day craft to do with my fourth graders. They had a ball creating their own designs with a piece of removable vinyl and some scissors. How would you design yours?
