Cheers! It’s National Wine Day today in US and Friday Frivolity is celebrating. I’m bringing you guys a simple craft idea that you can share with your friends. Today we’ll be making customized wine glasses with permanent markers. It’s a really fun craft that you can use to make as a gift for loved ones or have a drink and draw night with your girls.
The most important material is the wine glass. I got these really full glasses from Dollar Tree. I love that they have the green in the stem already. It adds another dimension to your design. They’re also great because they are quite tall which gives you ample room to draw on them.
Markers are next. I really wanted to use the metallic Sharpies but Walmart was out. I got this huge pack of 24 BIC markers instead and they’re awesome. The pack was less than thirteen dollars and the points are super fine, almost like a pen point, which is great for little details.
Scrap paper and tape round out the material list.These easy personalized wine glasses make the perfect gift. #wineday #easydiy Click To Tweet
Personalized wine glasses
First, you want to wash your glasses and dry them well. This is to ensure the markers go on smoothly.
While your glasses dry, come up with your design. My idea was to use the phrase, “Owl drink to that” and add an owl. One of my best friends loves owls so she was my inspiration for this one. You can find the designs you want online and print them or just free hand a sketch onto scrap paper. Tape the design to the inside of the glass.
Use your markers to trace your design onto the glass. You’ll want to go slowly and once a layer is dry you can add another.
Finally, pour some wine and enjoy!
