Votive Holders

Plain glass votive holders are easily dressed up with frosted spray paint. Decide on the design that you would like to have on the votives. You might take stickers or vinyl decals and stick them over the votive holder in the desired design. Apply the paint by holding it 12 inches from the votive holder. Lightly spray two or three coats of paint on the votive holder and let dry. Remove the stickers from the glass. Place votive candles in the votive holders. As the votives burn, the light will reflect off the frosted paint design.

Monogrammed Mirrors

Frosted spray paint can make an ordinary large mirror seem extraordinary. Monogram the mirror to add class and sophistication to your home. Decide on a font for your monogram. Print the monogram on a piece of paper and trace it onto a piece of sticky vinyl or stencil plastic. Place the stencil on the mirror. Make sure you cover all areas of the mirror except the part you want monogrammed. Spray the frosted glass paint on the mirror. Apply two or three light coats of paint. Let the paint dry and remove the stencil. Hang the mirror as desired.

Decorative Vase

Large vases or hurricane glasses are easy to decorate with frosted glass spray. Determine a design and apply a stencil to the glass. Hold the frosted glass spray paint approximately 12 inches from the vase or hurricane glass. Apply a light coat of the frosted paint to the glass. Repeat two more times, or as desired. Let the glass dry completely. Carefully remove the stencil from the glass. Fill the vase or hurricane glass with flowers, candles or other decorative items.

Privacy Glass

In the past, privacy glass was difficult to get without a lot of work. This is because the glass was specially ordered, covered with vinyl or etched with etching creams. Frosted spray paint makes it easy to simply tape off the glass area and apply the paint to the glass. Cover windows with the paint to give yourself more privacy. The whole process should only take a few minutes to complete.
