Summer may be over but that doesn’t mean that you can’t relive the carefree feeling of life at the beach with these easy to make beach inspired frosted wine glasses.
This simple and inexpensive craft will make a great addition to a beach theme evening with friends.
How to make Frosted Wine Glasses
Assorted frosted beach glass paint- We used Scottish Highlands and Beach Glass from the Martha Stewart Sea Glass line.
Clear stemless wine glasses
Paint brushes- a stencil brush works well for this
1. Wash and dry your glasses well so you know the paint will adhere well.
2. Tear off a length of tape and wrap it around the base of the glass. You can place it as low or as high as you wish. Use painter’s tape so it peels away easily and leaves clean lines.
3. Place your paint on a plate. Using a fat paintbrush, apply a coat of paint from the tape line on down.
4. Allow the paint to dry, and repeat. You may wish to repeat 3-4 times until the paint is thickly coating the glass and your streaks are eliminated. To eliminate the look of streaks, you may also want to work the brush in one direction only.
5. Once the paint is dry, remove the painter’s tape. Reveal the clean line. You can use a razor blade if you wish to clean the paint line up. A blade will allow you to chip away any unwanted paint marks.
6. Your glasses can now be used. To keep the paint intact, avoid using a dishwasher and wash the glasses by hand.
