**Full Disclosure: I received window film courtesy of Blinds.com in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
You might remember that I participated in the Blinds.com craft challenge last year by making a photo backdrop with a mini roller shade. Well it’s time for the challenge again, except this time my product was a roll of frosted window film.
I received the film on Saturday and it sat unopened until yesterday. Last night I pulled it out of the package and stared at it for a good hour. I was thinking, ‘What in the world am I going to do with this stuff?!’ And then I had a light bulb moment. I was going to make Window Film Etched Glass Candle Holders. Start to finish, this project (one glass) took me less than 10 minutes.
Because I don’t have the patience for intense crafts this project was just my style.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 roll of frosted window film
- 1 glass (or more if you’d like)
- spray bottle with water
- Note: If you want your film to fit precisely, grab a pencil & ruler also.
How To Make a DIY Window Film Etched Glass Candle Holder:
- Make sure your glass is clean.
- Decide where you want the film to sit on your glass.
- Measure out a piece that will go all the way around. (I didn’t measure, I just rolled the glass to make sure it fit.)
- Cut the measured window film.
- Spray the outside of the glass.
- Peel the film from the paper it’s on.
- Gently roll it around the glass. Try to keep the air bubbles out.
- Squeeze the bubbles out with the squeegee (it comes in the Blinds.com window film package).
- Decorate with anything else you’d like – stickers, ribbon, etc.
I love how the etched glass turned out! The thing about this window film is that can be easily removed, if need be. I think it would be beautiful as a centerpiece for date night, girls’ night, weddings or whatever! And the decorating options are endless.
Would you make these window film candle holders? What would you use them for?
