Have you ever thought about creating your own painted glasses? Today, I will show you step-by-step how to make your own.
They are easy to make, and the only restriction is your own imagination. Get those creative juices flowing and let’s make some painted glasses!
I have contemplated making my own painted glasses for a really long time. I gave it a try and am thrilled with the result. It was much easier than I had anticipated and today, I am sharing the step-by-step so that you can make your own too!
I know these glasses aren’t perfect but I love them. I wanted them to look handmade and not something that would come from a big factory or machine.
Originally I was going to paint glasses with stripes. But I am obsessed with polka dots and I knew polka dots would be much easier to paint than stripes. Right?
I had another reason why I wanted to paint polka dots on these glasses. Twenty-two years ago I bought 16 of these clear white polka dot glasses. They were part of the Martha Stewart line at KMart.
Every time I set a table with my Martha Stewart glasses I get tons of questions about where I bought them. And I always feel terrible when I have to tell everyone that an item is no longer available.
And hasn’t been for twenty years!
I did find similar polka dot glasses on Amazon, but they are currently out of stock also. I promise, the second they are back in stock, I will share them.
Without a source for these adorable painted glasses, I decided to make my own.
And, can I just say that I think these would make a great holiday gift!

The glass paint comes in so many fun colors. Here are a few that I plan to try.
Don’t you think these glasses are wonderful to use over the holidays?
I cannot wait to set a table with them.
I have a set of the same glasses that are taller. How should I paint them? Same color? Stripes? More polka dots?
Are you wondering if these glasses are washable?
The secret is that you have to “cook” the glasses after they are painted. Once that is done they will be microwave and dishwasher-safe.
I think you are going to want to watch my video above to see how to make these.
