How to make Frosted Wine Glasses

Supplies needed:

Gather your supplies for 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
Painter’s tape
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.

The glasses truend out lovely! I would love to have something that would always remind me of the beach. I will try this craft at home. I could also use other paint colors to match other occasions.

Those are perfect for bringing the feel of the beach home. I know I'd feel like I'm on a beach vacation any time I used one.
