I saw these votive candle holders at a store recently for $25 each. I thought I could get a wine glass at my local thrift store and I already had paint, and I could make it myself for just a few dollars. This snowman wine glass candle holder is a fun craft, and they look great on a fireplace mantle.

I highly suggest heading to a thrift store to find an out of place wine glass to upcycle. You can find them for under $1!
Line the surface you plan to do your craft on with some old newspaper.
Then in a well-ventilated area, spray your glass with your frosted glass spray paint, it might not look right at first but when it drys it will look frosted. Depending on the look you are going for you can spray a 2nd time after the first coat drys.
Using the red glitter paint turn your glass upside down, paint a small circle around the stem on the bowl of the glass and then paint that and the stem/base of the glass with the red glitter paint and let dry.
You might need a second coat to make sure coverage is what you want. Let the second coat dry.
Keep your glass upside down and dip your pinky into your black paint and press on two dots for eyes and about 5-6 for your mouth as seen above.
Now use a tiny paint brush and paint on a carrot shaped nose.
Then mix a tiny amount of pink paint into a small amount of white and dip your pinky in and onto the cheeks of the face.
Once your eyes are dry, paint a dot of white paint or a little star in each eye
Let your glass dry completely before adding to your decor. Then place a tea light on the red base and display with your Christmas decor.
