Birthday presents, weddings, and other fancy occasions can be had with glitter wine glasses.If you want to make a glitter stick to your wine glasses, you can use painter’s tape and glass glue.The project can take a few hours because of the drying times, but it is easy and fun to do.
Step 1: You should gather your materials.
You will need special materials and tools to make glitter wine glasses.You will need glass glue, Mod Podge or similar wine glasses, painter’s tape, glitter scissors, and cotton balls.
Step 2: Think about sketching the design first.
Drawing your design on a piece of paper will allow you to see what looks nice and what doesn’t, and thus prevent you from making mistakes later on.It is better to get the design right the first time, because it is possible to clean off glitter and glue while they are still wet.glitter only to the base of the wine glass is a popular design for glitter wine glasses.The stem of the glass can be extended by 12 to 1 inches.Only the stems of the wine glass can be glittered.Use glitter to create an initial or number.Use glitter to create stripes on the entire glass.The glitter should be applied to the entire glass except for the top 12 to 1 inches.Two different colors of glitter are used to create designs.It is possible to create ombré designs by having two colors blend into one another.
Step 3: You need to set up your workspace.
You can cover a table with a newspaper.Glue and glitter can be messy.If you want to collect glitter, you should put a small piece of cardboard or paper on your workspace.It will be easier to return excess glitter to the bottle.
Step 4: Use alcohol to clean the wine glasses.
The glitter will stick to the glass if you clean it well.You can use cotton balls dipped in alcohol to wipe the outer surface of the glass where you plan to apply glitter.After you have washed your glasses, put them away for a while and let the alcohol dry.
Step 5: Put a thin strip of tape on your glasses.
Next, use painter’s tape to cut a long thin strip.You can use a short strip if you want to apply glitter to the stem.If you want your glitter to stop, place the tape around the wine glass.Make sure the tape is securely attached to the wine glass.You could end up with a crooked glitter line around your wine glass.If you want to apply glitter to the base of the wine glass, tape off the stem and leave it exposed.The glitter will extend onto part of the stem if you leave 12 to 1 inches of it exposed.To apply glitter to the stems of the wine glass, cover the base with tape.The bowl part should be covered with tape as well.You can apply glue directly to the glass or use a glue stencil to create an initial or number.To create stripes on the wine glass, simply wrap a long piece of tape around your glass in a spiral, creating a candy-cane effect.There should be places between the edges of the tape.To use more than one color, tape off the areas you don’t want glitter on and apply glue to the first color.You will apply the glue and glitter for the next color after you have applied the glitter.To create anombré effect, simply tape off the bottom and top part of your design and work in the area between the pieces of tape.
Step 6: You can put glass glue on your paper plate.
You need to be able to dip your paint brush in the glue to pour it onto the paper plate.Make sure that the glue is thick enough to hold the glitter in place.
Step 7: Glue the lower part of the wine glass.
Take your paint brush and dip it into the glue when your tape is secured.The glue should be applied to the lower half of the wine glass.Make sure you apply a thick layer of glue to the wine glass.If you’re worried about leaving streaks on the glass, you can use a foam brush.A foam paintbrush applies paint more evenly than a bristled paintbrush.
Step 8: Glue glitter onto it.
Set the paint brush aside after applying glue to the wine glass.Hold onto the part of the wine glass that doesn’t have glue on it.glitter over the glue-coated areas of your wine glass after you hold the glass over your piece of cardboardContinue pouring glitter over the glass until all of the glue-coated areas are covered in glitter.Excess glitter can be returned to the bottle when you’re done.Pick up the cardboard, bend it, and pour the glitter into the bottle.If you want to do multiple colors of glitter, you need to let the first layer dry and then apply more glue to the glass.As you did with the first layer, pour your second glitter color.
Step 9: The wine glasses should be left to dry.
You can leave the wine glasses overnight to make sure they are fully dry.The glasses need to be dry before you can finish them.After the first layer has dried, you can apply more layers of glitter.
Step 10: The tape needs to be removed.
Remove the painter’s tape when the glasses are dry.The glitter-covered glass should be separated by a sharp line after you remove the tape.After you remove the tape, discard it.
Step 11: The glitter should be sealed.
You will need to use glue or a spray to seal the glitter.To seal the glass with more glue, use your large paintbrush to paint on another layer of glue over the glitter.Allow the glass to dry for at least an hour.You will need to go outside to seal your glass if you plan to use a seal spray.The glass should be placed on a piece of newspaper on the ground outside and then sprayed with the clear.Allow the glass to dry for at least an hour.
Step 12: There is a piece of ribbon around the stem.
If you want to add a finishing touch to your glass, tie a piece of ribbon around the top of the stem.Attach the ribbon in a bow.Your glass is ready to be used or given as a gift.
Step 13: After they are dry, use your glasses.
If the glitter is still wet, it can smudge or come off easily.You should leave your glasses out to dry overnight to make sure the glitter is completely dry.They are out of the reach of children and pets.
Step 14: You should wash your glasses by hand.
Extra precautions need to be taken to ensure that the glitter doesn’t chip off when you clean the wine glass.Try to avoid the glitter areas when you wash your glitter wine glasses.The goblet and the rim of the wine glass need to be cleaned.Don’t wash the wine glasses.Try to avoid the glittered areas by using a soft sponge.Wine glasses should not be put in the dishwasher.
Step 15: Don’t wait to dry your wine glasses.
Don’t let your glasses sit in water.After washing your wine glasses, be sure to dry them off with a soft towel.The glitter may chip and flake off if there is too much humidity.
