When I first sat down to research spray-on frost ideas, I’ll admit I was secretly skeptical.
What am I going to suggest we spray frost on? I thought. Our children? On the annoying cat? What decorative frost ideas could possibly exist, besides windows? Well, I’m delighted to report that I’m apparently an idiot, because ladies, these pictures prove that everything is better with a little frosting.

Rustle up a few Mason jars and a can of frosted glass paint, and you’re basically set for this project. Simply tape a stenciled star onto the Mason jar and spray away, but be sure to tie the top with a seasonal ribbon for a fresh look for Christmas.

Holiday wreaths are old news, but not when they’re frosted, earthy and organic like this amazing update. We love that the design remains a little edgy with monochrome elements, even though it’s made from frosted branches and pine cones.

OK, there’s nothing wrong with a little bit of spray frost on your windows for holiday cheer. If you’re tired of the look of fake snow, though, make sure you give it an update with a whimsical design like this one. It’s easy enough for the kids to play with — your only requirements are Epsom salt, glue and water.
