I’m sure that you have seen the cute upside down wine glass candle holders before. This year, I found some wine glasses at my local Dollar Store that I thought would be perfect to create a cute winter wine glass centerpiece.
What is great is that this centerpiece costs less than $15 to make and overall it is pretty easy!
You will want to purchase:
- Holiday miniatures
- 3 different sized wine glasses
- Paper cake base
- Hot glue
- Mod Podge
- White glitter ornament filler
- White acrylic paint
- Sponge paint brush
- Small candles
I began with a silver cake base. This is the kind that you put on a cake plate before decorating a cake. I placed the wine glasses, upside down, on the base to position them how I wanted them. Then, using a pencil, I traced the rim of the glass onto the base. This is so I know where to place the miniatures.
Next, I placed a variety of holiday and winter miniatures inside the circles so that they would be inside the wine glass. I used a reindeer, holiday mailbox, fir trees, and some holiday signs. I attached them all with hot glue.
I wanted to have some snow around the miniatures so I used a thick layer of Modge Podge and placed some shredded ornament filler on top of it to glue it down. I then put a layer of hot glue along the rim of the wine glass and glued the wine glass to the base.
I wanted the wine glasses to have a snowy look so I used some white acrylic paint and a sponge brush to dab at the wine glass stem and base until they were covered. Then, using a very light coat of paint I dabbed at the glass itself to make it look like it was snowing over the wine glass. I was careful to leave the front of the glass open so that you can still see the miniatures though.
Once you are done you can then transfer the base to a table, mantle, or wherever else you would like to display it. For the finishing touch, place three small pillar candles on the top of the glasses. I guarantee you this wine glass centerpiece will be a really cute and unique focal point!
