Thanksgiving Crafty Countdown...DAY 5

'Frosted' Candle Holders...with a leaf motif

Clear contact paper gives these an etched look, but after the holidays are over (and a new one has begun) you can just peel it off and add a new one (snowflakes, maybe?)

You need:

clear contact paper
glass candle holder
craft knife

1. Trace or draw a leaf onto the paper side of the contact paper. Cut out.

2. Using the craft knife cut a slit to start cutting out the stem, I found it was easier to finish the job with the scissors.

3. CAREFULLY peel off the paper backing.  This can be a little tricky, just pull slowly & make sure not to tear any corners.

4. Stick to the outside of your candle holder, adjusting as needed & making sure there are no air bubbles.  I used a filled candle, just because that's what I had on hand, it would look great on a clear glass votive or candle holder--be sure to use one with straight sides to avoid lots of bubbles & creases.

**The look is subtle...it would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table, where you are close to the candles :)**
