Wine Glass Painting

Hidey-ho neighbors! [Did anyone else watch Home Improvement?! We were obsessed in my family.]

I have been busy at my little apartment, staying up all night [literally, I went to bed after 6 this morning.] playing my video game [beaten!] and doing crafty things. I actually have a couple of craft projects to blog about, but since they are a surprise for Shane when he gets home, they will have to wait until next week. <3

But this is one I really had so much fun doing! I got the idea from [what else] Pinterest, and I was like…. maybe I can do that?

Painting wine glasses!


So I ran out and bought supplies, really only needed the glasses though, since I have so much acrylic paint lying around.


Here are the items I used:

+Sharpie oil based paint pens
+ Painters tape
+Paintbrushes (any to be used with acrylic paint should be fine)
+Acrylic craft paint (regular kind, except for the Martha Stewart chalkboard type on one project)
+Gloss Glaze
+Plain, washed wine glasses

Instructions are pretty simple, also.

+Wash and dry wine glass.

+Paint wine glass as desired. It will take a few coats of acrylic paint to stop looking streaky/see through. I started by painting the bottom of the glass, then painting the top portion last. Allow to completely dry.

+Paint a gloss glaze.

+Put on a tinfoil covered cookie sheet and place in a cool oven. *DO NOT PREHEAT BEFORE PUTTING GLASS IN* Set oven temp to 350* F and set timer for 20 minutes. (This includes time for the oven to preheat.)

+Turn the oven off and do not remove glass for another 10 minutes.

+Remove from oven and allow to fully cool before use.

Pretty simple, huh?

Here are the designs I came up with! [Or ‘borrowed’ from online shopping.]

Tree Branch


This is by far my favorite. It’s really difficult to get a good photograph angle, but it’s so pretty. It also took the most time/work! I painted the bottom like stated above [under the glass] then used the black Sharpie paint pen to make the branches. This one I did NOT use a gloss glaze on.




You knew this was coming, huh? Haha. This one was pretty straightforward. Paint, gloss, done.




My spiderwebs again! I sure do love to draw these. Definitely the easiest one to make.


Chalkboard Name


This one I found online and made a replica of [since I’d rather make it myself than buy it], and I used painter’s tape to portion off about 1/3 of the stem, and painted chalkboard paint on the TOP of the stem and bottom of the glass. Then used a white Sharpie oil based pen to write my name. No gloss glaze.

I think I might make more of these since they are so pretty and classy and simple. I have an idea to make one for the name of every guest that visits us, so we can end up with a nice little collection, and a cute way to hold on to memories. <3

Hope you like them! I;’m making more, but these are just the ones I’ve finished so far. I’ll probably post more as I do them.

Well I’m off! Have a great day everyone!


  1. if you used a sharpie on the chalkboard one you can't take it off can you? are there chalk pens?

  2. No, I didn't want to be able to take it off. I don't know if there are chalk pens, but that would be neat. I know Starbucks has little coffee mugs with chalk, so I'm sure you could find some.

  3. Yea! I'm excited to see some fall crafts to do! Now that the weather is cooling off I'm looking for some fun projects.
    Glad to find your blog!

  4. Very nice! I would have been disappointed if there was no gators glass.

  5. Love it and your blue page!

  6. How cool! I love that you did this! The tree branch one looks really amazing!

  7. Nice to be your friends. Your blog contains useful information. Many thanks

  8. Wow these are excellent! Can you drink out of these now or are they for visual purposes only?

  9. thanks for having this blog... my martini glass looks perfect! Have a great day.

  10. I made some and the paint is starting to scratch off, where did you find the glass sealer!!?

  11. Ok so I am having a lot of issues with this! I was told to use Enamil acrylic paints. I have washed them 3 times, rubbed with alcohol...let them dry for 3 hours...when I paint over the first coat the paint starts peeling off the glass. What am I doing wrong?

  12. Greetings I am so grateful I found your weblog, I
    really found you by error, while I was searching on
    Yahoo for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like
    to say many thanks for a fantastic post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all
    at the moment but I have book-marked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have
    time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the excellent jo.
