DIY Galentine’s Day Wine Glasses

In honor of Galentine’s Day, I teamed up with Keighla and some other awesome bloggers who are helping me share the best ways to celebrate Galentine’s day with your favorite girls! Keighla worked on an awesome, and easy craft that you can surprise your favorite ladies with (and look like a master crafter!) Check out her DIY Galentine’s Day Wine Glasses below!

In preparation for February 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 afterward!

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)
  • Tape
  • Printed designs of your choice
  • Oven

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!

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.

    Regards

    This is such a fun way celebrate your girlfriends! I agree, with thinking Valentines Day is a little gimicky. 🙂
