Yesterday I finished my last day of work for 10 days, yes TEN days! I’m so excited to have some down time! My shopping and wrapping are done and it’s time to just enjoy the season with my bunch…and do some projects like these personalized chalkboard wine glasses, which are perfecto for Christmas parties or New Year’s Eve!
This is a little DIY I originally shared last year, but since I’m about to make a few more of these for this year, I thought you might need it again too!
These wine glasses are probably one of my favorite little projects ever because you know me, I love to chalkboard paint anything/everything and i adore anything personalized. And they’re so easy to make!
Here’s how I did it:
I used wine glasses from Dollar Tree (as many as you feel like painting), Frog Tape (though blue painters tape or masking tape will do the trick too), and Rust-Oleum Chalkboard spray paint, which is my favorite!
Step 1: Clean dust off the glasses and dry thoroughly. Then, wrap tape around the stem of the glasses, exposing just the base of the glass. I found it was easiest to go part-way up the stem where it was even all the way around.
Step 2: Take the taped glasses outside (or in a well ventilated garage) and place several inches apart on a drop-cloth. Gently spray a thin coat of paint on the bases of the glasses (following the directions on the can). Let the glasses dry for at least 1 hour. When the bases are no longer shiny (and have the matte finish of a chalkboard), gently apply a second coat of spray paint. Make sure to cover all the glass. Let dry overnight.
Once the glasses are completely dry, remove the tape, and they’re ready to use. Now, all you need is some chalk and a few guests!
*Note: These glasses are not dishwasher safe, but I have hand-washed mine several times with no problem.
