I thought it would be great to have wine glasses for each member of my family. So, I set about to do it.
First Step - Purchase a
I picked up mine at our local dollar store. Yay! for dollar store's. Right?
Next, purchase some paint for glass. I highly recommend
I love these paints. The colors are really creamy looking. I know
I'm going to be using these on many more projects. Great value too.
I also purchased
These were nice and on my first experience with glass painting, I only used these.
On the second product I used the silver pen to outline.
Let the fun begin.
One more thing. I got smart the second time around and found these
gel stickers at the dollar store. I didn't know at the time that I would be using them for my glasses but they worked beautifully.

Aren't they pretty?
Two more for my son and his girlfriend.
Here's one I made for my niece Scarlett. Her own Princess glass.
Here's a picture of the first ones I made. They have each of our names on the glass.
Have fun creating.
I love and appreciate your comments and questions.
