I know chalkboard wine glasses have been all the rage on Pinterest. I decided to do a twist on the classic chalkboard wine glass to create a great festive wine glass for celebrating the holidays.
These glasses are really simple to make. First I went to World Market and bought four of their wine glasses on sale for only 99 cents each. Next I ran by Joann’s and got traditional green chalkboard paint along with red and white gloss enamel glass paint. Once you have all the materials on hand, it is time to get started.
Step 1: Pour some of your chalkboard paint into a container large enough to dip the base of a wine glass into. I chose to use an old tupperware that was the perfect size.
Step 2: Making sure your wine glass is completely clean, dip the base into your chalkboard paint. Completely submerge it to thoroughly coat it.
Step 3: Slowly lift the glass out of the chalkboard paint to minimize the bubbling. Hold it over the container, swirling around slowing as the excess paint drips off. Use the edge of the container to scrape the bottom of the glass before moving on to the next step.
Step 4: Set each glass down in a flat area on a sheet of wax or parchment paper. Make sure to move the glass every 10 minutes so that they do not stick and to remove extra paint on the bottom of the glass.
Step 5: Once the glass has had a few hours to a day to dry, flip it over to start working on the confetti red and white. Starting with white, take your paint brush and begin dotting the glass as seen in the image below.
Step 6: Once you have completed the white dots, repeat with red dotting into the gaps and overlapping the white dots. This will create a great confetti look. You could also add in green or metallic paints to keep in the holiday theme while looking more filled in.
Step 7: Allow the glasses to dry for 24-48 hours before using them.
All done! A great festive and functional addition for holiday entertaining! Please keep in mind that these glasses are hand wash only. Also when writing on the base, be careful to not apply too much pressure our you may knick the paint.
