Under $5.00 porch tea light

I swung by Target the other day and found these (didn't take a before pix) cute lantern tea lights for $1.00 in their dollar section at the front of the store.

Hum.... now what to do...



I have it!

Grab a can of Rust-Oleum Frosted Glass spray paint(around $4.00 at Home Depot) and a cute vinyl decal (could be from your Cricut, just a suggestion)



or a couple cute vinyl stickers...



and spray a light coating... it goes on clear but dries frosted so wait a couple seconds and see if you need more (it dries quickly)



and viola, cute porch tea lights!




(Forgot to remove my son's cap gun from my porch display BEFORE I took the pix!)

Really like the shape of these and the frosted look! Glad to see you back! Thanks for stopping by to visit! If you do the pics make sure you do the glue outlines the day before so they can dry! Have fun!

These are adorable! Thanks for the comment on my blog. (I posted a longer explanation there) I use a silhouette sd (not cricut) and it takes any font on your computer.
