I am pretty sure no one can have too many pieces of decorative glassware. While I am no where near the collector status of Elsie from A Beautiful Mess with her wall of rainbow glassware, I am getting closer with each DIY glass that I make! These brush stroke glasses are super simple, even for the artistic-less (that’s a word, right?!) among you. And just look how pretty they end up!
- Multi Surface Craft Paint
- Rubbing alcohol
- Paint brushes of various sizes
- Tumbler glasses (these were from Ikea)
Begin by cleaning the glasses with the alcohol. Once dry, use your paint to add various sized brush strokes and dots to the glasses. I kept the designs on the base of the glass only, but you can easily add the colorful brushstrokes up further towards the top as well.
Once you have covered the base of the glass and are satisfied with the look of the glasses (you may need to add a second coat to make the paint completely opaque), let the paint dry. Then place in a cool oven, turn it on to 350 F and bake for 30 minutes. Then turn off the oven and let the glasses cool in the oven. Once cool your glasses are ready to use and even wash on the top shelf of the dishwasher!
Now all you need is a tasty and refreshing drink to go in your new artistic glasses! xoxo. Kara
