"BLING" in the New Year with these DIY Glammed-Up Wine Glasses!

 
Hi everyone!  I am so happy and excited to FINALLY share my cheap and simple glammed-out wine glasses.  I made these over a month ago and have been so busy with so many holiday crafts/DIY projects and taking care of my family, that these were put on the back burner....but HERE THEY ARE!  {cheering and clapping sounds}

 
Here is what you will need to create your own FABULOUS wine glasses:
  • Dollar Tree wine glasses...yes folks, another **BUDGET FRIENDLY** project!
  • Any kind of acrylic craft paint that can be used on glass
  • Stencils {I like to use the Martha Stewart adhesive stencils, they rock because they stay in place}
  • Sponge Pouncer {for the stenciling}
  • Loose Glitter
  • Indoor/Outdoor Mod Podge
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Rhinestones 
 
Start off by thoroughly cleaning your glasses with warm water and soap then dry. Make sure not to get your fingerprints all over the glasses before you paint...the oils from your skin may prevent the paint from sticking permanently.
 
 
Start stenciling/painting away...
 



 
Once your painting is complete, follow the directions on the back of your paint tube for drying/baking instructions.  **YOU MUST BAKE BEFORE DOING THE NEXT STEP**


You are probably wondering "what the heck is that blue thing"...its just a piece of foam paper I used to protect the spray adhesive from getting on the rest of the glass.  If you don't have spray adhesive, you can most certainly use your Indoor/Outdoor Mod Podge for this step.  The reason I say to use the outdoor Mod Podge is because it is water resistant and completely seals in the glitter, protecting your glitter from all the future hand-washing.


 
 
Put your glitter in a bag, add the prepared glass, secure top with fingers and SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE IT:)  I repeated this step several times to make sure the bottoms were completely coated in glitter.  Once dry, coat the top of the glitter with your Indoor/Outdoor Mod Podge to seal.  Let them dry before getting wet or using...follow instructions on back of bottle for drying time.
 


And you now have some perfectly hand painted and BLINGED OUT wine glasses!! I actually decided to add rhinestones to all the black painted dots, after the fact, to make it even more glammed up.  Who is ready to feel like the Queen you already know you are? I know I am!
 




 
 Have a GLAMMY glass of wine and a fabulous day!
