DIY Champagne Flutes For NYE!

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.

I love this DIY. Will absolutely try for my NYE cocktail party. Are the glasses washable with the glitter? Or is it a one time use DIY???

is it okay to drink from them even though it’s sprayed with shellac??

Molly – If you’re able to avoid spraying the top portion of the glass they should be perfectly fine to drink from!

Ashley – yes you can wash them, but I would recommend doing it by hand, not in the dishwasher :)
