Wine glass candlestick

What a romantic evening without candles? They create a special atmosphere for hearts in love. But, like any element used to prepare a romantic evening, candles require special decoration. Therefore, today we will make a simple and original candlestick from a glass or a glass with our own hands.
To create a decorative candlestick with our own hands we will use:
- wine glass or glass;
- water-based paint;
- PVA glue;
- decorative napkins;
- color for paint / watercolors;
- sponge;
- cordially made of felt and thick burlap threads as a decor;
- transparent silicone glue;
- varnish spray in a barrel.
At the first stage of work we proceed to tinting the surface of a glass or a glass. In order for the paint to fit well on the surface, first degrease and dry the glass surface. Apply the paint on the glass with a sponge in several stages, giving a good dry each layer. For tinting is best to use white paint, and the desired shade of the future candlestick can be given at the final stages of the decor.

While the surface of the glass dries out, from the decorative napkin we cut out the elements with which we will decorate the candlestick. It is better to cut more components and “estimate” directly on the very surface of the glass, which ones are suitable for decoration, and which ones can be discarded so as not to overload the candlestick with the decor.

Using PVA glue, we fasten decorative napkin elements to the surface of the glass. Do not forget to smooth out the wrinkles and expel air bubbles from under the napkins, just do it very carefully so as not to tear.

Dry the surface of the glass, and, adding a little color of the desired color to the paint, tint the surface to the desired shade to smooth the color between the glued elements and the white surface. Color can be replaced with ordinary watercolor paints. Remember that after the paint dries, its color will become less saturated. Give the paint to dry. Additionally, the foot of the glass can be decorated with a heart made of felt and a harsh burlap thread, or with any other decor you have. We fix it with a transparent silicone adhesive.It is advisable not to use a large number of decorative elements and it is necessary to carefully ensure that they subsequently do not come into contact with the candle, but are under the base of the stem of the glass.

If you plan to use the candlestick once, then the decor can not be fixed, and after a romantic evening, soak the glass in water and remove the paint from it, giving the glass its original look. If the candlestick is used repeatedly, then it is best to open the surface with a special spray varnish, so that it can be washed or wiped with a damp cloth if necessary. Now we just have to light the candles and romance.
