On Wednesdays We Drink Wine…

Well it’s snow day round 2 for me. Wednesdays happen to be my favorite day though because it’s wine night. So it has been a win win if you ask me!

In keeping in my Wine Wednesday theme, I thought I would share my hand-painted glitter wine glass DIY with you. This also makes for a super cute and personalized gift–perfect for the Holidays! The cost of the project is easy on the wallet as well, you just need a few items. Here’s a glass I made just a couple weeks ago…

Glitter Glass

What You’ll Need:

 

Wine Glass Supplies

Wine Glass– head’s up, you can stock up on great glasses at the Dollar Store!

Mod Podge– this stuff is AMAZING. You can find it at any craft store. I have many DIYs involving it and I use it for everything craft related.

Enamel Paint– mine is the Folk Art brand, but any enamel paint will do. The shades I used on my glass are Butler Magenta and Gold.

Glitter– the glitter I used is from Hobby Lobby. The shade you see here is Petal Pink.

Paint Brushes– I have lots of these lying around. I used a wider brush, then a brush with a finer point for the design.

You’ll also need rubbing alcohol, a paper plate (or something to put your paint on), an oven, and a cookie sheet. The last 2 items sound weird but will make sense, I promise!

Step 1:

Wipe your wine glass clean with the rubbing alcohol. It will get rid of any dirt or oil that prevent the paint from sticking.

Step 2:

Paint the upper portion of the glass. As you can see, I painted a polka dot design with a fine brush, but you can do whatever design you’d like and use any colors. When you are happy with your design (it usually takes about 2 coats of paint), let the paint dry for 1 hour.

Step 3:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. This step is necessary because you need to cure the enamel paint. You can also let the paint dry for 21 days, but the oven is much easier.

Step 4:

After the paint has dried for an hour and oven is preheated, place the wine glass on a cookie sheet and let it bake for 30 minutes. Be careful when removing, and let it cool completely before touching!

Step 5:

When the glass is cooled, we can put the finishing touches on with the glitter! First, paint a thin layer of Mod Podge on the entire stem of the glass with the wider brush. Then, sprinkle glitter on the Mod Podge so the stem is completely covered in it. Finally, coat the glitter with another thin layer of Mod Podge (this sets the glitter so you can actually use the glass without having glitter everywhere). I find it easiest to apply with light patting motions over the glitter.

 

Voila! Once the final layer of Mod Podge has dried, you’ll have a super stylish wine glass! You can do this DIY with the paint, or just glitter the bottom of the glass by itself. Both make for a pretty design. Keep in mind the enamel paint is also top rack dishwasher safe so you don’t have to worry about it coming off.

Cheers and Happy Wednesday!
