- Plain wine glasses - I bought the super jumbo ones from the dollar store - $1/ea
- Ceramic / glass pens (I hear you can use plain old sharpies too?!?!) - I had a coupon for 50% off at JoAnn's Crafts, so these cost me $12
- Chalkboard paint - about $5
- Painters tape - left over, but I think it's a couple dollars for a roll
- Newspaper - FREE!!
First, I drew my design - in this case, I used the 1st letter of their last name, and I made 8 glasses, all written in a different font.
I used bronze, gold and black, but you could use whatever color you'd like - maybe to match your kitchen!? The great part about the pens I have is that you can wipe the design off with a paper towel and water if you make a mistake or don't like your design, and then re-do it, as long as you haven't baked them yet.
When your design is done, bake them in the oven for 40 minutes at 425 degrees. I layed them flat on a baking sheet, so they wouldn't roll around or break. This will set your design and make it permanent.
The next day, after they had cooled completely, I wrapped the glass with newspaper down the the bottom of the stem and taped it with painters tape.
I think she liked them!! :)
