Friday Fun: Arts and Crafts


In previous posts, I've clearly demonstrated my love of all things pinterest. I've posted a few recipes I've found there, and today, I wanted to share a craft project that I completed, based off a pin I saw a while ago!


I saw this pin and sent it to my friend Elizabeth, suggesting that we get together that weekend for the project. She loved it, and how could you not?!


These are confetti dotted wine glasses!  Pinned from here, original link here.  


That Saturday morning, we met at a DC mall that has a Bed, Bath and Beyond. We found a coupon for the stemless wine glasses, and with that, two boxes of four each were $10! Wooo! Elizabeth had bought the paint the weekend prior, from Michaels. We used Q-tips to do the dotting, and did little color themes for each, and they were so much fun to make!




We had no particular pattern in mind, or color scheme, we just made it up as we went along, and I think that was the best part. Some of them are just two colors, some three, and there was one that I did with about five colors, I think! Some have the dots close together, and some are a bit further apart too....just for fun!

 



We took a break for snacks. Snacks make everything better. I've been really into olive plates lately....so, green olives, black olives, mozzarella and mini gherkins! Oh, and cheese and smoked sausage, of course. 







The finished product! 

We forgot to buy the spray to coat them, but I bought some the next day. 

As you may notice, some of the dots are a bit smeared, but that just adds character, right?








These were so much fun to make, and now I can say that I made them myself if someone is over and asks me where I got my wine glasses  :)



Any crafts for you lately?


Also! Don't forget to leave suggestions for names for our new aprons! We love them so much, and they need spectacular names to highlight them. Remember, you could win a lovely Ella Grace too, so please stop by and see them!
