DIY Glitter Wine Glass {Easy Craft Tutorial}

How to make a DIY Glitter Wine Glass - Easy Craft Tutorial by Amy Locurto LivingLocurto.com

I love turning something old into something like new again, so when Michaels contacted me to participate in their RE-Love challenge I was all for it! If you’re looking for inspiration to RE-Love something in your home, check out Michael’s Lookbook full of great project ideas.

The craft I chose to make today is so easy to do… you won’t believe it!

As a person who hosts a lot of parties… I own a lot of wine glasses and goblets, but many have broken over time and I only have a few glasses left per set. I was just getting ready to toss a few mismatched glasses into the garage sale box when I heard from Michaels.

At the time, I was painting my fingernails with glitter nail polish and had an idea! Guess what I did???

Yep, I painted my wine glasses! Then I went even further and personalized a few glasses for gifts.

Find out how I did it in today’s RE-Love It Easy DIY Glitter Wine Glass Tutorial.

This craft is SO EASY and it turns any plain old glass into something beautiful.

Use this technique on wine glasses, glass candle holders, a vase or water goblet.

What you’ll need:

  • Wine Glass or other Glass Item of Your Choice
  • Dimensional Magic Mod Podge (Outdoor Mod Podge also works- find it at Michaels)
  • Clear Glitter Nail Polish (I used OPI Polish, but I’m sure any kind would work.)
  • Paint Brush

Use the nail polish to paint the top of the glass rim. Paint the rim only or move on up to paint the stem and bottom section of the glass.

If you want your glasses to be painted perfectly, you could tape off the glass section that you don’t want painted. I just started painting and eyeballing it worked fine for me.

Let the fingernail polish dry, then use a paint brush and paint one coat of Mod Podge over the glitter to seal the nail polish. It will dry clear.

That’s all folks! SO EASY right???

Hand wash with hot water and soap. So far, my glasses have been washed several times and they still look great!

** UPDATE – After washing them for several months, the paint began to peel on a few glasses. I think I didn’t cover those enough with the Mod Podge. So be sure to cover them well.

Stick the stencils onto the glass, then gently dab the paint with the stencil brush.

Do a few coats, let dry, peel off the stencil and voila!!!

These glasses make great hostess gifts and perfect for parties! Nobody will ever know they were old glasses! Shhhhh! Your secret is safe with me:-)
