I bought this "goblet" at the thrift store for $1.75 a while ago, and have used it for many things since then. Recently, I spotted and pinned these candles made with yarn and frosted spray paint and LOVED the way they looked. I thought rubber bands would work, too. With Christmas coming, I was looking for ideas for a table centerpiece and this seemed a good starting point.
So, I grabbed the goblet and added the rubber bands.
Next, I gave it two coats of frosted spray paint. I used Rustoleum Frosted Glass Spray Paint. I got it a while ago at the local hardware store, but I did find it at Amazon...Frosted Glass Spray Paint. Only had to wait about two minutes between coats...
Ten minutes later it was dry! I removed the rubber bands and voila! You will want to use a sealer for this to make it water resistant...I found this one on Amazon from Krylon, or this one. It's a spray and I have not used it, so I can't comment on the quality. Or you could use polyurethane and brush it on very carefully. I'll be honest, I take a feather duster to this for cleaning or I wipe it down with a dry towel, but if you will be washing it, then definitely seal it!
Isn't it gorgeous?! I love it so much, and for under two bucks! :) It looks awesome with a candle flickering inside. This picture doesn't do it justice...
I will probably add some winter greens to the base and use it as a centerpiece for the holidays.
