Glittered Candleholders

Tools and Materials
a.. Template
b.. Glass hurricane lamp
c.. Transparent tape
d.. Glue
e.. Bottle with fine-tip applicator
f.. Bowl
g.. Clear glass glitter
h.. Cake stand
i.. Candle

With their motion frozen in clear glass glitter, coniferous trees and reindeer encircle hurricane lamps lighted from within by tall, rose-hued candles. Here, the candleholders are elevated on glass cake stands, then faux snow is dusted around them.

Copy Design to Glass
Step 1
Photocopy template, enlarging to fit into a glass hurricane lamp. Roll up the template and slide it inside the glass, with the design facing outward. Secure at the top with transparent tape. Using glue in bottle with a fine-tip applicator, outline one section of the design, then fill it in.

Apply Glitter
Step 2
Working over a bowl, sprinkle with clear glass glitter. Let glue dry; shake off excess glitter. Glue and glitter the next section of the design. Continue all the way around. Remove template; let dry overnight. Place hurricane lamp on a cake stand, and place candle inside.
