Hi gals! In honor of Galentine’s Day, I’m partnering with a few other blogging babes for the next few weeks to share the best Galentine’s Day DIYs, Outfits, Cocktail Recipes, and more!
In preparation for Febuary 14th, I’m going to be doing a little something special! I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day (it’s a little gimmicky to me), but it’s a great excuse to have fun with your S.O., or in this case, your girlfriends. Galentine’s Day is a great excuse to hang out with your BFFs, do your fave things, and pop open a bottle or two (this DIY is the perfect excuse to)!
For the first post in our Galentine’s Day series, I’ll be sharing with you guys these SUPER cute Sharpie paint pen wine glasses. I’ve always loved DIYs but I’m also not the most crafty person either. I love DIYs like this: they require little artistic talent and are inexpensive. I think I paid $20 for all of the supplies!These wine glasses are super easy to make and you can customize them any way you like. They’re even a super fun craft to do with your girlfriends at a Galentine’s Day party- and then get some use out of them afterwards!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Sharpie oil-based paint pen (water-based won’t work)
- Glass wine glass (plastic or acrylic won’t work)
- Printed designs of your choice
Step 1: Prepare the glasses
The first thing you’ll want to do is clean out your glasses so the paint pens go on smoothly. You’ll also want to remove any stickers because we’ll be putting the glasses in the oven to set the paint!
Step 2: Secure your designs
Next, make sure you have some designs handy that you want on your wine glasses. I looked for inspo on Pinterest! You can visit my “DIY” board here to find the photos I used for my designs. I pasted the photos I wanted to trace into a Google Doc and resized them so that they would be the perfect size for the glasses. Make sure to tape the designs into place so they don’t move around while you’re writing!
Step 3: Trace your design
This step is the best part! Pick out the colors you want to use for each design and trace them. Add your own flair to the designs, and make them super cute! I made four different styles and I am IN LOVE with them. They’re so cute!
Note: Make sure to not get paint anywhere near the rim of the glass for safety reasons. You don’t want to ingest any paint!
Step 4: Bake the glasses
This last step is important to ensure your design sets properly. Bake your glasses directly on the oven rack at 350°F for 20 minutes. After they’ve finished baking, turn off the oven and allow the glasses to cool completely before removing them.
Step 5: Pop open a bottle (or two)!
Put your new wine glasses to the test and have some wine with your girlfriends! Make sure to hand wash only to ensure the design stays on. Enjoy!
What type of wine will you be drinking out of these Galentine’s Day wine glasses? Cheers!
