Nothing makes us happier than having a home full of family and friends, gathered for no good reason other than to be together. With several holidays around the corner, we came up with a colorful, creative way to decorate your favorite wine glasses!

These designs make for an adorable centerpiece whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving, having a Halloween party, entertaining friends, or simply sitting around the table with your family. In other words, they’re good enough for company but not too formal for a casual dinner or get together. Not into centerpieces? Personalize your glasses individually according to your favorite designs or upcoming holidays!

Alright, grab your paintbrushes and lets get colorful!

Directions

Start by wiping your wine glasses clean to make sure they’re free of dust and debris (this helps the paint stick as well).

Begin by painting the bowl of your wine glasses so you can paint the stem once it's dry. Allow the first layer to dry 5-8 minutes. Apply base layers until completely covered. This will usually take 3 layers of paint.

Now that your base paint is dry, it's time for details! The sky is the limit on your seasonal designs, so we provided a few examples to spark your creativity!


Complete Set

 

Here's to a great fall & holiday season!
Cheers!
