The Perfect Crafternoon DIY
Well, howdy friends! Lauren here from your favorite entertaining site & today we are sharing a fun DIY we whipped up for a Crafternoon party we held last week. Perfect for those extra wine glasses, a gift, or a fun set for entertaining – this summer DIY is super easy, totally rewarding, and, best part, you get to drink wine afterwards! What could be better than that?
We love hosting Crafternoon parties in the summer time because it’s a fun thing to do with friends & they almost always turn into a casual dinner party. Have you ever hosted one? If not, we are sharing all our favorite tips, tricks, and steps over on LaurenKelp.com. After you learn your favorite new DIY, hop on over & check it out!
Are you ready for the best DIY ever? Literally two steps & you are on your way to the best wine glasses around. The options are endless! Customize them for a friend, a specific dinner party (like a seafood boil perhaps?), or with your personal monogram – why not?!
- Glass wine glasses
- Acrylic enamel glass paint (in the color of your choice)
- Small, flat sponge brush
- Peel off letter stencils (see below image to clarify)
- Your favorite bottle of Kendall-Jackson wine.
- Gather some wine glasses (they can be cheap glass ones from your favorite dollar store, or extra glasses that don’t get much love – just make sure they are glass) & give them a good rinse & dry thoroughly.
- Grab your supplies & find a nice clean surface to work. Place your letters to spell out your word, phrase, or monogram & dab a little bit of acrylic enamel paint so your letter is covered but not running. For a weathered look, rub your brush back & forth to add some nice streak texture to your letters.
- Let dry according to directions on your bottle & peel off sticker. Once your letters are set & cured, they shouldn’t fade in the dishwasher, but just to be safe, I like to hand-wash mine.
- Give them a quick rinse, pour in some of your favorite Kendall-Jackson wine, & voila! The happiest wine glass you ever did see!
So, what do you think? Delightfully easy & adorable, right?! Careful, it’s crazy addicting. We started with a few glasses and now we’re giving them as gifts, labeling juice glasses, and there is no end in sight!
We used white paint, but it’s really fun to play around with the paint colors and shape & type of glass. Invite the gals over & hop to it! Everyone needs a festive little wine glass in their life, why not make yours with some friends? Enjoy!
