I found this idea on a blog called Recaptured Charm- here's the link to the original post/idea and her tutorial for it: http://www.recapturedcharm.com/2010/05/mason-jar-tea-lights.html I figured it would work well done with an apple shape for a teacher. You take a glass jar (any kind, votive, Mason jars (I used Mason Jars like the original idea). You can use any shape that you want- free hand it or use a Cricut for vinyl. If you use paper, you can just use a glue stick to hold it on while you spray- or you could use spray glue- waiting until it is dry on the paper to stick it temporarily to the glass. Then just use a can of spray "frosting"- found with the spray paints. I used Valspar Frosting Spray- it was 4.98 in Lowe's - several dollars more in Michael's. Follow the directions on the bottle and spray over your stencil stuck to the glass. It dries pretty quickly and you can peel your stencil/mask off, and voila, there you have it.
