Christmas Centre Piece

The Frilly & Funky have a challenge at the moment for a project that can be found on your Christmas table or Christmas tree.

Found a very plain wine goblet which just cried out to be altered. The goblet is 5″ long and a little battery operated flickering tea light fitted into the rim perfectly. Smear the edges first with some pinflair glue so that it stays in place.

Next came the messy but real fun part, painting the glass with a white and cream paint. When dry splattered/flicked the same two coloured paints down the edges, whilst still wet spoon over some glass glitter. First picture shows the goblet unlit and the second shows the flickering tealight lit.

Ripped a pretty napkin for the candle and adhered with wax paper. Around the stem of the glass I covered this with Frantage Shaved Ice for a real sparkly effect.

Stamped the snowflake stamp onto vellum … which was a freebie from Craft Stamper last year … twice with Versamark. White E P was added to one snowflake and silver E P to the second. Fussy cut both and layered over the middle of the ribbon. Also entering this for the Craft Stamper challenge, they want to see a splatter technique.
