When I started to think about this idea, I wanted to use what I had to make this. We have several wine glasses from different food and wine events we attend that have maybe a logo etched into the wine glass. So to help hide the logo I started by spraying the glasses with gold glitter paint. I used a spray glitter I found at the craft store.
I did different designs with spirals or jagged edges. You can be creative and make different designs. Then I sprayed a modge podge shellac over the salt to try to keep them from falling off. (I don't know how much of a difference this made in keeping the salt on, but thought it was worth a try.)
Lastly I placed tea lights inside and lit them to give my mantle that warm and snowy feel around my evergreen garland.
