No-Stitch Cross-Stitch

Are you big on cross stiching and would like to take it to the next level? Or you like the look, but never cross stiched in your life? Well how about etching the cross stich look on glass candle holders and place them on your dinner table for your next event. What is really great is that this craft from Martha Stewart is that it does take that much time to create them. 

First you have to download Martha's templates Letters and Patterns, and print. Enlarge template to desired size on a photocopier; cut out. Position template inside vessel using tape. With an extra-fine-tip paint pen, trace pattern onto glass. (If you make a mistake, wipe with a damp paper towel while paint is wet.) To repeat pattern around glass, shift the template inside vessel, and trace again. Let dry. It is as simple as that.
