Welcome To Ten Days Of Christmas Crafting. Today I am going to share how to make painted glasses.
I have wanted to make a set of painted glasses for a really long time. I finally made some yesterday and it went well.
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.
Today I am going to share how you can make them too!
It’s Day Three of Ten Days of Christmas Crafting and today I am making painted glasses!

Originally I was going to paint some glasses with stripes. But I am glad I decided to make polka dot glasses.
I had a reason why I wanted to paint polka dots on these glasses. Twenty-two years ago I bought 16 of these clear polka dot glasses. They were part of the Martha Stewart line at KMart. I think they cost me one dollar each.
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.
If you like polka dot glasses, you can now make your own. And guess what? These glasses cost me a dollar each too.
And, can I just say that I think these would make a great holiday gift!
Watch My Video to Learn How to Make Painted Glasses
I am sure you are wondering how these are made.
I hosted a live demo today, December 4th, on my Facebook account.

What You Need to Make Painted Glasses
Set of six glasses (I used the Target Room Essentials Short Tumbler Glasses which cost $1 each)
And that’s all you need, except for an oven.
Be sure and join me for my live DIY!
Don’t you think these glasses will be 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?
I guess we will find out today on my Facebook Live.
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 to see how to make these.
