DIY Summer Confetti Wine Glasses

Ahh, Memorial Day,
the unofficial start of summer.
We are getting ready for the long weekend in
simple red, white and blue style...

We will be using our confetti stemless wine glasses all summer long.
You will not believe how easy they are to make...

The only supplies are
glassware, acrylic paint from the craft store and cotton swabs

dab the swabs into your paint...

and dot onto your glass until you have your favorite festive pattern...

allow to dry...

and bake...

They are the perfect way to jazz up your summer bbq or
give as a hostess gift with a beautiful bottle of wine.
Cheers to the long weekend and a colorful summer!

How to make Confetti Wine Glasses

glassware you would like to paint (stemless, as used here are inexpensively found at dollar stores and big box retailers)
acrylic paint (from craft store)
cotton swabs
parchment paper
baking sheet

Apply small dollops of paints you would like to use onto a paper plate or painter's palette and place cleaned glassware upside down onto a covered surface.  Dip cotton swab into first color and dab onto glass to begin your confetti pattern.  For best results, do one color at a time, allowing to dry about 10 minutes before next color layer.  Once you have your desired pattern finished let glassware dry at least an hour and then place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Place baking sheet in a cold oven, then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. After baking turn oven off and allow to cool at least an hour before removing.

These confetti glasses are durable, but hand washing and gently drying are recommended.
