This craft idea was pretty easy to come up with… I love wine, I love glitter, I love stemless wine glasses, and I thought it would be fun to put them together!
My DIY Glitter Wine Glass turned out so cute! It only took about 40 minutes to make and the materials cost less than $25 (thank you, Target!). I think these would be adorable homemade party favors or gifts. You could even change up the color of the glitter for various holidays and events.
The project itself was simple. I didn’t get frustrated at all during the process – just a little covered in glitter (which was kind of fun). I found it to be an easy, relaxing project to do on a quiet night after work. It didn't turn out as perfectly as I'd imagined, of course, but the outcome was still cute!
Follow along on my crafting journey below – I’ve included some helpful hints to make the process easier. If you end up creating some DIY Glitter Wine Glasses of your own, please share pictures. I’d love to see how they turn out! Cheers!! Xo
One stemless wine glass (washed and dried)
Assorted glitter (I used the Martha Stewart Glitter Library)
A small foam brush
Mod Podge Dishwasher-Safe Gloss
Scotch BLUE painter’s tape (safe on glass)
Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer
Paper Towels (to cover your work table)
1) Use painter’s tape to create a border around the center of the glass. This will allow the glitter to be applied evenly and only on the bottom half of the wine glass (HINT: I found that using several smaller pieces of tape, rather than one long piece, made it easier to surround the glass evenly).
2) Select the glitters you would like to use and combine them in a small bowl. Mix well (HINT: I used a mixture of different shades of blue, accented with pink).
3) Using the foam brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to a small section of the bottom half of the glass. Then, working quickly, sprinkle glitter over the section, allowing it to stick. Pat down any glitter that is not lying flat. Hold the glass still for 30 seconds while the section dries.
4) Repeat Step 3 until the entire bottom half of the glass is covered with glitter.
5) Let the glass sit for 15 minutes to dry.
6) Carefully spray the glitter with the sealant spray. Be careful not to spray the upper half of the glass.
7) Once dry, remove painters tape and voila!!
NOTE: Be gentle when hand washing the glass. Avoid scrubbing the glitter section.
