Christmas Wine Glasses

CHRISTMAS CUPS

Christmas Wine Glasses

Grinch, Santa, Snowman and Reindeer

Materials: Dollar Store wine glasses, buttons, wiggle eyes, glitter spray paint (Bronze Blaze, Citrus Dream, Diamond Dust and Cheery Bomb), bells, pipe cleaners, feathers, ribbon, hemp and one red pom pom.

 (looking for the glitter spray CLICK HERE for where I purchase mine, Looking for the Yellow wiggle eyes CLICK HERE)

Make sure your glasses are clean then simply spray them with the glitter spray and let dry for 24 hours. Once dry you can embellish them any way you want. I used hemp for the stem on Santa along with ribbon and a gold pipe cleaner (chenille stem), for the snowman buttons and ribbon for a scarf, for Rudolf simply a glitter pom pom and pipe cleaner antlers, and the Grinch some feathers, wiggle eyes and a sharpie for the face. We had these adorable Christmas bells at my work so I tied some to each glass just for a little extra. All Items where glued on with a basic craft glue (I used Tacky Glue). 

NOTE: When spraying these you must treat it like any spray paint, you need to do it in coats and spray at a slight distance, if you get to close or spay too much in one spot at a time then the paint/ glitter can run. Shake the can VERY well before spraying to mix the glitter, this also helps to keep the can from clogging. If you live in a cold/ damp climate you need to take caution when spraying it may not tack up if its too cold out (you can spray them in a garage or somewhere warmer to help, but be careful of over spray in this case).

These are so much fun because the possibilities are endless! you can do anything you want and make any character you want. Just need some glitter spray and away you go!

I am so thrilled as to how popular these have become, I encourage you to make your own for you or family and friends. However I do strongly ask that you do not recreate these to sell since it directly competes with my Etsy site and local business. If you post your reproduction anywhere online such as a blog please link back to your original source of inspiration, this keeps my blog able to continue, along with me being able to create more fun ideas to share with everyone. Thank you all so much for your support.

    My guess is you can’t drink from these only decorative.

    Would acrylic paint work on the wine glasses. Thinking of do a craft night with girlfriends so we could do them at the same time.

      hi there, I am unsure on how well acrylic paint will last on the glasses (it could chip off with time) I would recommend using a glass paint if you are not spraying them 🙂
