Looking for a fun way to personalize champagne glasses? Grab some glitter paint and lets go!!!

Supplies:

  • Champagne glasses
  • Glitter Craft Paint…We used Martha Stewart’s Glitter paint from Michaels as it’s dishwasher safe 
  • Small foam applicator

Start by cleaning your glasses with alcohol and making sure they are completely dry before you start painting.

Style 1: Gold Glitter.

For the first design, I wanted to make the glitter look like it was sneaking up the glass from the base. So that is where we will start ‘pouncing’ the paint onto the glass.

Just keep dabbing and dabbing until a good coverage of glitter starts to develop. All three styles will need at least two coats of paint and at least one hour of drying time in between each coat.

Carefully twist and paint your glass. To get the look of the glitter fading up the glass, paint less towards the rim…

…and paint it more towards the base. I turned my glass upside down to make it easier to paint the base.

Add the bubbly and you are done! Remember, if you want to wash these glasses in the dishwasher you need to let them dry for 21 days. Also, paint should not be near where your lips will touch the glass, so try to keep the paint at least 3/4″ away from the rim of the glass.

Style 2: Personalized Monogram Glass.

For this style  you will need letter stickers for your monogram. Start by choosing your letter of the alphabet and placing it on your glass, nice and firm.

I wanted to create a box around my monogram so I taped it off using tape. Be careful with the curve of the glass, measure it out if you need to and don’t get discouraged if it takes you a few times to tape it off evenly. It is worth the struggle.

I wanted a more dimensional turquoise glitter paint, so I mixed both blue and green together.

Then using a foam applicator I started dabbing  with my mixed paint.  Since I wanted a really bold monogram square, I used three coats of paint, with an hour of drying time in between each coat. A good way to check the glitter coverage in this design is by taking a peak from behind.

Once the paint is fully dry, I mean completely and totally dry… carefully pull the tape and the sticker monogram off. I waited a whole day to pull them off. If any edges pull up – push them right back down. If any paint bled under your monogram sticker, using your nail gently scratch it away.

Let it cure 21 days and you are good to go in the dishwasher! Isn’t it is SO cute!!??

Style 3: Pink Glitter

 For this design I wanted to create the opposite look of the gold glass… hot pink glitter sneaking down the glass away from the rim. Since the paint should be kept away from where you will sip your drink, I chose to start this design about 3/4″ below the rim. Tape a line… be careful with the curve of the glass, it might take you a few times to get the tape line straight.

Again, using your foam applicator  start dabbing the glitter onto the champagne glass. I did two coats of paint, with an hour of drying time in between each coat.

Just like the gold glass, dab much more glitter paint onto the top of the glass and much much less towards the bottom of the glass. So that it looks as if the glitter is falling down the sides of the glass. When the paint is completely dry, remove the tape.

The gold one is probably my favorite… but they are all SO cute and easy!
