Candlestick from wine glass

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 wine glass with our own hands. To create a decorative candlestick with our own hands, we will use: - a glass or a glass; - water-based paint; - PVA glue; - decorative napkins; - color for paint / watercolor paints; - sponge; - warmly made of felt and thick burlap threads as decoration; - transparent silicone glue; - lacquer spray in a canister. 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 toning, it is best to use white paint,and the necessary shade of the future candlestick can be given at the final stages of the decor.

While the surface of the glass dries, we cut out the elements from the decorative napkin, 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 break.

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 watercolors. Remember that after the paint dries, its color will become less saturated. We let the paint 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. Fasten it with transparent silicone glue. It is advisable not to use a large number of decorative elements and it is necessary to carefully ensure that they do not come into contact with the candle, but are under the base of the stem of the glass.

If the candlestick is to be used 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 it remains only to light candles and give in to romance.
