This might be the adorable Dollar Store wine glass idea you didn’t know you were waiting for!

I was in a home decor store the other day and saw some fun and festive wine glasses. I instantly thought of my grandmother who loves to have various holiday themed dishware on hand. When I saw the price tag rang in at $12 a pop, I figured I could make my own version of the glasses for much less, while also adding sentimental value. All it took was a steady hand, some dollar store wine glasses and some multi-surface acrylic paint to create these firework and patriotic printed beauties.

I decided to do a stars and stripes glass and a fireworks print one as well.

STEP 1: Wash glasses Rinse and dry your wine glasses to remove any dust particles.

STEP 2: Paint fireworks For the firework print simply put your paint brush in the center of where you wish your firework to go and pull away allowing the end to taper off. Repeat in a circular pattern. Add a couple of bursts outside of the circle as well.

STEP 3: Paint a rim To place a colorful rim at the base of the glass simply rub your brush along the edge carefully.

STEP 4: Add polka dots For the polka dots just dip the wrong end of your paintbrush into your paint and dab the paint onto the glass sporadically.

STEP 5: Paint the bottoms For the stars and stripes glass I placed star stickers along the bottom of the glass and dabbed paint over them all along the bottom. *Make sure to cover the stickers entirely. Allow to dry.

STEP 6: Wrap the stem in a ribbon For the swirled stripe I took a piece of tape and wrapped it around the stem and the rest of the glass. *Be sure to leave space between the tape.

STEP 7: Paint around the ribbon Paint a stripe of red paint next to the tape. This will serve as a guideline for your other two stripes. After the red stripe has dried paint a white line next to the red line you just painted and then a red line next to the white line so that it rests in between the two red lines.

STEP 8: Cook your glasses This step is very important! It is time to cure your paint so that it doesn’t wash off. Place your glasses on a baking sheet and put them in the oven. Set your oven to 350 and a timer to 30 minutes. *Do not preheat the oven. The glass must warm up with the oven so be sure to place the glasses in before turning on the stove. When the 30 minutes is up simply turn the oven off and allow the glasses to cool inside. Be sure to hand wash only!

Just looking at these glasses gets me excited for the 4th’s festivities.
