As the temperature begins to drop outside, you may want to warm up your home and make it extra cozy this fall. One way you can do this is by adorning your home with candles. Candles can add elegance to any room. To really make your candles standout, try decorating a glass holder. That is exactly what Chris Williams did in this Martha Stewart glass project. Chris used several frost translucent paints from the new glass paint line. This week on Paint Me Plaid we are giving away some of these frost paints. Glass painted candles are charming for any room.
