Create an Easy Christmas Wine Glass Candle Holder That Will Impress

6 Materials
1 Hour
Halloween is over and the holiday spirit is starting to fill the air. It might seem early now, but with how fast time flies and all the things there are to do around this time of year, it can never be too early to think about holiday decorating! This Christmas wine glass candle holder is really easy and can be done in an afternoon. Make one or a bunch of these gorgeous Christmas centerpieces. In this one, I added a bird and pine cone floral stem, but your imagination is the limit on what you can put inside these cute candle holders.
Basically all of the supplies for this, besides the paint, were purchased from the dollar store. I found a wine glass, flowers, Styrofoam snow, a saucer and the candles at Dollar Tree. I bought the frost paint at the craft store as well as some Snowtex (which is now my new favorite thing to use to create a snowy texture.)

Here is what you will need for your own Christmas Wine glass candle holder:
Flowers for stem
Something for inside glass (I used a bird floral stem)
Frost paint
Styrofoam or table salt to add snow texture to saucer
Fairy lights

Here is how to make your very own candle holder:
First, spray paint the saucer with white or frost paint. Spray the back first, let it dry and then spray the front. If you would like it to have a snowy texture, simply add salt or small Styrofoam snow balls to the wet paint. Once the texture has dried, spray a quick clear top coat over the saucer to seal everything in. Also make sure your glass will still have a level place to rest after the texture is down.

Next, spray paint the bottom, stem and back side of the wine glass with Frost paint. Basically spray everything except the front of the glass so there is a window left in the glass for your decoration to show through.
Once the glass is dry, add your decoration inside the cup part of the glass. Make sure it shows through the window you created. If what you are using is small, you may need to glue it in place using hot glue. My bird was pretty tight, so it basically held itself in.

Place the glass upside down on the saucer. Glue the glass in place using hot glue or e6000. (Or don’t glue and add fairy lights to the inside.)

Adding the finishing touches:
Hot glue some flowers on the stem to balance out the design and make it look even more festive. You could use flowers, bows or pine cones.

Add some texture to the candle. I painted some Snowtex on my white candle to give some more texture. I also added a touch of texture around the rim of the bottom of the glass.

Glue the candle down so everything stays together and enjoy your creation.

You could also add some fairy lights inside your wine glass for even more sparkle. You would do this without gluing the glass down preferably so you can change our lights as needed.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful Christmas candle centerpiece. This will look amazing on a mantle or a table and the look could be changed to accommodate any holiday!
