On the 11th Day of Christmas....
 DIY Wine Glasses and Serving Plate

I found these very inexpensive wine glasses and glass plate for $1 each at Target and thought it would be fun to spice them up!

I used some Martha Stewart acrylic glitter gold paint to make it more festive for the holidays and thought I would make them into "His" and "Hers" wine glasses for those nights me and the hubs relax after the little one (finally) goes to bed!

I kept a wet paper towel nearby to whip off any mistakes and using a paintbrush carefully wrote "his" and then "hers" I just eye-balled it to make them about the same size. Then I flipped the glass over to add a few accent "dots".

For the serving dish, I thought it would be fun to write something festive. I went with "Eat, Drink and be Merry!" A perfect dish for some Christmas cookie!

  Looks like Champagne bubbles!

Next, I decided to glam up the wine glasses with a little glitter! First, I taped off the stem of the glass at the same point on each glass.

Then I added "Mod Podge" glue to the stem and sprinkled on some glitter. When the glue was dried, I sealed the glitter in with clear nail polish. I got a cheap bottle from the dollar store. No point wasting the good stuff!

I love the way they turned out, especially the glitter base! Next, time I would love to make them in different colors too- great way to keep track of your wine glass at a party!

Merry Christmas Everyone! Cheers!
