I saw some awesome chalkboard wine glasses in my researching of wine glass markers.  Instantly, I thought, "I can make those!"  So I did!  ^_^





I ultimately ended up making four sets of them.  I bought 4 boxes (set of 4 wine glasses) for around $6 and then the chalkboard spray paint.  I already had the painters tape.

Now, here's a little tutorial on how to make these:


Gather your wine glasses!  They can be any wine glasses; new, used, whatever!


Apply your painters tape, trying to get as straight a line as you can on the bottom.  This is the hardest part of this all, but it just takes some patience, and sometimes smaller pieces of tape.  Make sure to wrap up the entire stem, so you don't accidently spray it with paint.


Find yourself a good place to spray paint, preferably outside.  If its really cold out, spray your stuff, wait a minute, and then bring them inside to dry.  You will want to do an even spray, but not too thick.  Just enough to cover.  Wait for it to completely dry and then do your next coat.  The can of spray paint recommends at least 3 coats for glass.


Once it is completely dry, and you have all the coats you want to do, peel off your painters tape.  If you have little blips, they are easy enough to scratch away with a fingernail.  Then you have your new wine glasses!  I would suggest hand washing these babies and using a soft sponge on the chalkboard part, so you don't scratch the paint.

Thanks for looking!

That is great!

And I'll bet it would be good for a child's birthday party too - each having a glass with their name on it, not a glass with wine in it.

Oooo yeah, that would be cute!!  Like a band around the cup!  Love that idea!

The spray didn't say it needed one.  But you could probably always rough up the surface before spraying or put one on.  I, however, didn't do that with these.
