While the kids were having fun playing with their cousins...
My sister in law and I did something I haven't done in a VERY long time. We went to Hobby Lobby first. Armed with a Pinterest idea in mind, we picked out our favorite paint colors. Then, we headed over to the Dollar Tree and started searching for a canvas. Not a canvas in the literal sense, but more of a medium in which to transfer our creative juices. We decided on these stemless wine glasses--which could be used as juice glasses for children, or as any kind of glass for those that don't drink wine. Really, they were just a great glass to work on. We grabbed a handful of wooden skewers--the kind you would use to make kabobs-- and started dotting. To do it right, you have got to allow yourself several hours. It's a process of painting and drying, painting and drying. I am so pleased with the way they turned out and I plan on giving several of these creations as gifts in the coming year.
This was my first attempt. The colors are metallic and look really good as a set.
This are the Valentine glasses that my SIL and niece made. How cute are they?
This is the spray that I will be using. I used my smart phone to pull up the Hobby Lobby
coupon and saved 40%.
A set of Ole Miss and Tennessee tumblers. Wonder who these are for.....
**If you do this project, please be sure to seal the glassware with a clear coat. If not your glass won't even make it a whole day.
**I also found directions online that tell me to put the glasses in a cold oven and preheat to 350. Let them sit for 30 minutes, then turn the oven off and let the glasses cool inside.
