DIY-Chalkborad Wine Glasses and Distressed Holder

Matthew 25:35

 

DIY-Chalkboard Wine Glasses and Distressed Holder

Brought to you straight from Pinterest! Another direct Steal... So what else is new? and what can't you find on Pinterest?
 
 
A super easy, super cute Project, I've been planning on making these glasses since I first saw them on Pinterest.

 
 
When I saw this old wood wine glass holder at the 100 mile yard sale, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I forgot to take a before picture, so here's a "mid-way" picture.
 
 
I applied several coats of white Chalk paint, then a coat of light aqua chalk paint. Then I hand sanded and scuffed it up a bit. I knew I wanted to add some black accents to match the glasses I was going to make to go with it, so I decided to use a french script 
 

I had an un-mounted rubber stamp in a French Script, I didn't even attach it to a base, I wanted it to sort of bend over the edges just a touch.


I used stampin Up Black ink. I love the way it turned out! Can you tell I'm a little surprised? It usually takes me a couple trys to get it right, but this project came together on the first attempt!

 
I used a Final Stencil for the the bottom center, I used the
stampin up ink for this, also 
 

Now on to the glasses, I slipped the top of the glass into a plastic baggie, taped it shut, and taped the stem down to where I wanted the paint to stop.


I gave the tops of the bottoms 3 coats of Chalkboard Spray paint, it drys super fast in the sun, then flipped them over and gave the very bottoms 3 coats


The only chalk I could find was sidewalk chalk, that combined with my not so lovely printing...

 
Ta-Da~ I painted both sides of the bottoms so they could be "decorated" while in the holder, and personalized when in use!


I have a feeling I'll be making more of these!




 
Thank you for visiting with me today, hopefully you have been inspired in some small way...

  3. Very neat, Lorrie! Love it and I love how you did the holder, too. You sound like me ~ I'm surprised sometimes when stencils or stamps come out the way they are supposed to the first time around! : )

  4. I like your holder...nice job!
    I did that to some of my old glasses, but I dipped them in a can of chalkboard paint.
    Spraying them would have been a lot easier. :)
    Have a great day!
