Hi everyone! I took last week off from blogging because I was visiting my dad in St. Louis. We had a great time catching up, visiting museums, riding to the top of the Arch and seeing the Bruins beat the Blues!
When I got home this weekend, I had some free time and decided to put my leftover glasses from the chalkboard wine glass project and my new Martha Stewart glitter set to good use by making these pretty glitter wine glasses. This project hardly takes any time at all and the results are fantastic! These make great housewarming gifts and many people have told me that they want to make them for their bridesmaids as well :)
What you need...
- wine glasses
- glitter in any color (I used 4 colors from this Martha Stewart glitter set)
- Mod Podge
- fat paint brush
- Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating Aerosol Spray
- cardstock or other firm paper to shake glitter on to
What to do...
- Using a fat paint brush, coat the stems and bases of your wine glasses with some Mod Podge
- Sprinkle glitter on the base and stem of each glass one at a time, shaking off the excess onto a piece of cardstock and pouring it back into the container so you don't waste glitter or make a mess!
- Let the glasses dry for about 30 minutes or so. Go watch your favorite episode of House Hunters International to pass the time.
- Go to a well ventilated area (trust me on this one!) Spray a thin, even coat of the Krylon clear spray on to each glass. Take care not to spray too much or else the glitter will become wet and drip down the glass, which you definitely do not want!
- Let the wine glasses dry overnight on your windowsill. If you have a cat like mine who likes to knock everything over, I suggest putting them on top of your fridge or a very high cabinet so they don't get ruined. :)
- Pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy!
