DIY Glitter Champagne Glasses

If you've been following my blog for awhile, you may have seen my DIY glitter wine glass post before. It actually has the most page views of any post I've ever written, thanks in large part to Pinterest! I used to same process to create these pretty glitter champagne glasses over the weekend to give out as gifts. I hope the recipients will be happy with them! :) You can use any color glitter you want, but I chose silver and gold since I was making a whole bunch of glasses and didn't want to guess what colors people might like. I think they will be perfect for New Year's Eve among other celebrations!

If you don't want to make your own glasses, buy them here in my Etsy shop!




What you need...
What to do...
  1. Using a fat paint brush, coat the stems and bases of your wine glasses with some Mod Podge.
  2. Sprinkle glitter on the base and stem of each glass, one at a time, shaking off the excess onto a piece of cardboard and pouring it back into the container so you don't waste glitter or make a mess!
  3. Let the glasses dry for at least 30 minutes.
  4. 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! If you don't have a well ventilated area to go to, you can use the Mod Podge to seal in the glitter so it doesn't shake off. Paint a layer over the glitter, all over, making sure it's completely covered.
  5. 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. :)
  6. Pop some champagne and enjoy!
