    • Personalized Wine & Champagne Glasses

      Make your own personalized wine and champagne glasses for the holidays or as a beautiful handmade gift idea Create your own Elegant Personalized Wine and Champagne glasses in under 15 minutes. These beautiful glasses make a perfect gift basket addition, or a lovely way to ring in the new Year!

      You'll Need:

      Wine or Champagne Glasses (I got mine at the dollar store for. . . . you guessed it, a Dollar!)
      Martha Stewart Glitter Paint (whatever color you like)**
      Small spouncer***
      Tape
      Stencils (optional)

      Carefully tape the rim of the glass, leaving as much headspace as you'd prefer, depending on your design. Make your own personalized wine and champagne glasses for the holidays or as a beautiful handmade gift idea


      Using a spouncer, dab paint heavily over the area you want covered. You may need to add more than one coat of paint, (I used 3 coats of the pink due to it's lightness).

      A hair dryer works wonderfully to dry the paint faster if you're as impatient as I am. Once it's dry, peel off your lettering and tape & then cure your glasses.

      Curing the Glasses before use:

      There are two methods for curing the Glasses

      Bake method
      : After drying for 1 hour, place in cool oven. Set temp to 350 degrees F and bake for 30 min. (Glass must heat gradually) After 30 min turn the oven off. Let glass cool completely in oven. Donít use for 72 hours.

      Air dry method: it will cure after 21 days and it will be dishwasher top-shelf safe!

      My Notes:
      ** The MS glitter paint is available at most hobby/craft stores, such as Michaels and costs about $2.50 per bottle. I prefer this particular brand because I KNOW that it "cures" properly and will create a dishwasher safe product. If using other untested brands of paint, I recommend hand washing only.

      *** A spouncer, for those of you that don't spend every moment of your life crafting, dreaming of crafting or pre-planning your next craft project, is a small piece of foam that is flat and is used for stenciling.

      I'm still trying to figure out how to start my second row. I know, its sad. I'm a domestic failure. My ancestors are crying in their graves.
