I love New Year’s Eve. I have definitely had some years when I didn’t feel that way, but now, it’s a great excuse to celebrate with your favorite people and just let loose and have a good time. I love thinking back on the past year and all that has happened, and I especially love the feeling of a whole new year stretched out before you like a blank piece of paper waiting to be filled with stories and adventures. I love toasting to that moment when the clock strikes midnight, whether it’s with a glass of champagne or sparkling cider when I was younger, so for today’s DIY I wanted to experiment with some DIY customized champagne flutes! If you’re having a party these would be so much fun to make for your guests – they could even take them home at the end of the night as a memento. Or, hang on to them and use them for special occasions throughout the year! I made two different versions, and I love the extra bit of sparkle they will add to an evening.
Glitter Dipped Champagne Flutes
What you need: Elmer’s glue, glitter, paint brush, and champagne flute(s).
Using a paint brush apply the glue to the glass where you want it to be covered with glitter. Then simply pour the glitter onto the glue! Give the glass a good shake when you’re finished to get rid of any excess glitter. I sprayed the finished glitter glasses with Shellac Sealer & Finish so that the glitter stays put.
Gold Stencil Champagne Flutes
What you need: a piece of paper or card stock, gold paint, paint brush, double-sided tape and champagne flute(s).
For the other two glasses, I loved the idea of customizing them using stencils and gold paint. I decided to go with something simple and geometric: a triangle. I made the stencil out of a piece of card stock.
I lined the stencil with double-sided tape so that it would stick around the edges and no paint would seep through, then I stuck it right on the glass and painted the inside gold.
This would be fun to do with guests’ initials for a party, or using different stencils for each champagne glass! Again, spray the glasses with Shellac Sealer & Finish so that the paint won’t come off when washing.
