Raised Stencil Designs for Winter

Glittering Snowflakes on Glass

By Joy St. Germain

Glittering Snowflakes on Glass ExamplesGlittering raised snowflakes on glass are easy to create and will give your home a festive holiday glow. Raised stencils aren't just for walls, they can also be used on windows, wood, foam, paper and even some plastic. They're a fun, inexpensive way to create a colorful, glittering Christmas display. With the variety of different decorative stencils, acrylic paints, and glitter available the ideas are endless. And who says that snowflakes have to be white, mix in different color acrylics, and sprinkle in some extreme glitter for some real sparkle.
