This is a very simple project that can be easily customized however you can imagine. A little bit of sparkle makes everything a lot more fun!
I painted most of the main part of the glass with the "Florentine Gold" glitter paint, and then I wrote the ladies names in cursive in different colors with sharpie paint pens (love. them). At the base of the glasses I wrote the year and "Friend of honor" on the base of each of the glasses.
There were many loving toasts made with these glasses over the course of the bachelorette party and on our wedding day.
I was too busy while I was making these in mid-April to take any pictures or to document the process, so I redid the process this week so that I could share it with ya'll.
What you need: glasses, glitter paint, foam brushes or poms, paint pens
Start with a clean, dry glass.
You can use a foam brush or a foam pom to apply the gold glitter paint on the glass. You want to try to apply thin strokes in consistent directions. I used the foam brush to swipe up and down on the glass leaving a wide window in the center.
It's best to let each layer dry before moving on. I waited about an hour between each layer. I usually made these over the course of a few days because I would paint 3-4 layers an evening for a total of about 10 layers. You wouldn't have to paint that many layers, but I wanted a certain thickness.
Now you just have to trust me that as you start painting these layers, they are going to look like crap until you've gotten enough paint layered on. You'll be able to tell when you have enough layers because they will stop looking like crap and start looking like sparkle!
For this tutorial, I hastily painted on a simple pink heart (Valentine's glasses anyone?!).
What do you think? Do you have any questions I didn't cover?
I also used Martha Stewart glitter paint to make bags for my friends of honor, which contained all of their thank you goodies:
Hope you enjoyed this project. Sparkle on!!!
