Ok, so if you have 20 minutes to spare, let’s start making our DIY Christmas Wine Glass Candle Holder.
How To Make a Christmas Wine Glass Candle Holder:
Using a sponge paint brush, cover the base of the wine glass with Mod Podge.
Pour the faux snow on top to cover, then shake off the excess.
Next, paint the stem with Mod Podge. Hold your glass sideways and pour the faux snow over it while rotating the glass to cover all sides.
Lastly, stand the wine glass upside down and paint bowl area around the stem and include a few dips down the bowl to mimic snow falling down the glass. Pour faux snow over the upside down glass to cover the Mod Podge. Shake off any excess snow.
Paint the top and edges of the wood slice with white chalk paint. Let dry (approximately 10 minutes).
Use a dab of E6000 Glue on the bottom of the mini bottle brush tree and place it in the center of the wood slice.
Pull apart a small bunch of batting material. Add 3 small dabs of glue to the wood slice and arrange the batting material to cover the area around the bottle brush tree. Sprinkle the batting with a few pinches of faux snow.
Add glue to the rim of your wine glass. I used a q-tip to easily cover the rim of the glass with glue. Turn the wine glass upside down and place it on to the wood slice. Remove any batting material that sticks out from under the glass by pulling it or you could probably use scissors to snip any excess strands.
Tips for making your Christmas Tree Wine Glass Candle Holder:
Hot Glue can be substituted for the E6000 Glue. Hot Glue will adhere faster where as the E6000 glue allows you to move items for a few minutes to make sure everything is in the right place.
The faux snow will flake off if touching it often. You can seal it with a spray on acrylic sealer or adding another coat of Mod Podge. If using Mod Podge, wear a pair of latex gloves and dab the Mod Podge over the faux snow with your finger. I tried using the sponge paint brush and it took off more faux snow than it sealed. I ended up just dabbing Mod Poge over it with my fingers, but it was time consuming so I only sealed a small portion. I would suggest trying a spray acrylic sealer.
