    Fit them to a planter or other base and use them as a windbreaker for candles!

    Turn then upside down and into candle votive holders. Add a bit of greenery (like a very small wreath) around the outside to spruce it up a little bit.

    Molly....I love to paint clear glass with elmers glue and add color by sticking a toothpick in food coloring and stirring it with the toothpick. I then use a sponge paint brush and paint. They don't look real good at first because it kinda streaks but just wait. When they are completely dry they are beautiful. It's fun, easy and even kids have fun with it. Of course, you can mix colors but the pastels are gorgeous!

      Hey Sandra...I started simple with smooth glass. Cleaned the glass well and dried. Put some Elmers glue on paper plate, then put the tip of toothpick in food coloring and stirred with the toothpick until all white was colored. Then dipped my sponge brush in and started painting. As I said it did streak but after it dried was very smooth. I have not tried any cut glass and do plan to do some mason jars. Easy, easy idea with no experience needed  . Hope you enjoy, colors are definitely for Easter!
