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...
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...
Please leave a comment so I know you were here, they really do make my day!
