Decorative Filler Snowflakes Winter Theme

4 Materials
Looking for a wintry theme project to spruce up that area left barren from your holiday decor? Why not make your own beautiful snowflake table accents using decorative fillers on inexpensive glass containers from the dollar store! And if you look closely at the fillers - they look like tiny crystal ice cubes - imagine that!
They're so easy to make using: Decorative filler - clear Glass vases - Dollar Tree Snowflake stencil - Party City (99 cents) Rubbing alcohol Acetone - (nail polish remover) Painter's tape Plastic knife/palette or squeegee Plastic spoon Directions: Clean glass with rubbing alcohol to remove any grease or oily residue. Cut out snowflake patterns . . .
and tape on glass using painter's tape.
Use knife palette or squeegee to apply E6000 to open areas of stencil. Sprinkle filler over glue using spoon. Press down to adhere filler to glue.
Pull stencil off while glue is still wet.
Clean glue and filler off of stencil using acetone and wash with soap and water. Allow filler and glue on glass to dry overnight.
This dimensional technique of adding decorative fillers to glue designs looks elegant, goes with most decors, is budget friendly and can be used all winter long! And for a warm glowing effect, a battery candle votive can be added.

    there was no real mention of fillers. what are they & where do you purchase them?

  • Wanda Barnes Wanda Barnes on Dec 01, 2018

    They turned out beautifully! Is that glitter that you used for the filler?

  • Carol Rutledge Carol Rutledge on Dec 01, 2018

    I was wondering if you could use glitter instead of a filler; because I already have a lot of it and none of the filler. Would it still look close to the same?
