Yeah, my nails match my glass…lol! These were my New Years nails.
Here’s a super easy, fun, affordable DIY ladies, painting your own wine glasses. I own a few of those glasses you see in the stores and boutiques that sell for $20-30 each! I’ve been wanting to try this for some time and finally got around to it. I started off simple, so stay tuned for some more elaborate designs later on. I used Folk Art paint and Martha Stewart glitter paint from Michael’s that sell for about $1-2 a bottle. Using what I already had, I decided to go for metallic gold and gold glitter.
The stemless glasses I found at Target for $1 each. I like using a blunt edge paint brush because I feel like it’s easy making straight lines, but you could tape off as well. I used the end of my paint brush for polka dots.
The supplies list is super simple. Wine glass, paint and paint brush, and a paper plate.
Dipping the end of my paint brush into the paint and just dotting it on. I used the Metallic paint first, let it dry for about 30 minutes and then went back over each dot with the gold glitter paint.
For the martini glass, I left it as plan metallic paint polka dots. I really like how it turned out. Simple and cute.
On another glass, I painted about a quarter of the bottom in metallic, allowed to dry for 30 minutes and then used the glitter. I’m sorry I don’t have a finished version. I didn’t “love” it. I think because I didn’t bring the paint up high enough and my line wasn’t as straight as it should have been. I probably was drinking wine out of another glass while doing this craft, making my lines wonky. So I blame it on the wine 😉 But I do like the glitter layered with the metallic. It creates a nice gold sparkly finish.
Stay tuned for more elaborate designs. I’m excited to try this again. I expected to have to cure the paint in the oven but it really is unnecessary. I always hand wash my glasses anyway otherwise they get broken. So I only recommend the oven if you put yours in the dishwasher and then it’s 350 degrees for 30 minutes to set the paint. Happy painting!
