My daughter-in-law Marcy is at my home visiting from Georgia. I love it when we can get together. She always wants to do some kind of craft project when we get together. She knows how to make me happy just like my girls do. I always tell her to pin some fun projects and we’ll do them. Well….my project today is a project she requested. She saw this pin on Pinterest http://pinterest.com/pin/33495590949090998/. But she wanted to do wine glasses instead of drinking glasses. I was game! I have this really cool dollar store called Dollar Zone. They had some really fun wine glasses for a 1.00 so we each bought four. I pulled some paint out of my stash and we set to work.
Now take your pencil eraser and start applying a different tone of your color paint to the glass like this;
( Sorry, I still don’t have the hang of taking a picture with one hand. That’s one of my goals I need to work on.)
Once all your dots are in place you take your glasses and put them in a cool oven and turn the oven on to 350 degrees and heat up for 30 minutes and then let them cool in the oven to heat set the paint. Wallla, you now have some super fun wine glasses.
My daughter in law Marcy has just signed up for Stella and Dot and had asked me to have a party when she came home. I am not a fan of hosting parties but really wanted to support her. So my party was today. I thought it was the perfect time to make these glasses and serve at my party tonight. Here is a picture of the glasses with the food I served.

Don’t let the Grandparent’s day gift throw you off. This can be altered for any gift you may need.
UPDATE: I wanted to share I have washed my glasses in the dishwasher and they seem to be dishwasher safe.
