There’s nothing better after a long, cold winter than the first batch of spring flowers. Unless of course you could fill those flowers with wine! Now, my friends, you can. Give a toast to spring with these festive wine glasses perfect for a ladies brunch, a wedding shower, or just to give as a gift. These glasses are inexpensive and relatively easy to make, and the best part is the options are only limited by your creativity.

  • Wine glasses (I purchased mine at the Dollar Store.)
  • Multi-surface craft paint (Be sure the paint you choose is suitable for glass. I used Martha Stewart paints.)
  • Paint brushes
  • Paper plate for paint (or palette if you are fancy)
  • Small cup for water
  • Paper towel for wiping and drying your brushes
  • Puffy paint or paint pen if you want to add names

Step 1

Keep in mind that this project is all about layering paint on the outside of the glass. As cute as these glasses will look from the outside, the best part is how they look inside the glass. Spend some time thinking about what kind of flowers you want to make and how you want them to look from the inside so you can layer properly. For best results, layer contrasting colors. For example, start with a light color, and then use a darker color for the second layer, and so on. Look at some real flowers for inspiration. Start by creating the flower centers. I used yellow and brown paint to make small dots around the stem of the glass. Once that was dry, I painted over it with a lighter yellow color.

Step 2

Create your stems by painting the stem of the glass green.

Paint some green leaves on the base of the glass, and feel free to add little vines or any other designs. If you aren’t super artistic, you could also just paint the base green.

Step 3

Create some detailing for the first layer by drawing petal shapes, stamen-type lines, or any design of your choice. You can also paint details for your petals in this step, like small dots or veins. Let dry completely.

Step 4

Create your first layer of petals if you plan to have more than one, or simply paint your petals on the glass. Be sure coats are completely dry before adding a new coat or a new color.

When you paint on your final coat, be sure to paint all the way down to the stem to cover up the yellow center.

Step 5

Add any finishing touches like names, butterflies, or bees. Pour yourself a glass of wine and admire your work. The paint should adhere to the glass even with use. Hand-wash gently after use.
