My favorite gifts to give around the holidays are homemade ones. They make for a fun project for me, are one of a kind as a present, and show thought and care. This year I've made a few sets of glittered glasses to give as gifts. I bought the gold lipped glasses at The Dollar Tree and the rest of my supplies at Michael's.
STEP 1: Clean glasses with rubbing alcohol. Let sit dry.
STEP 2: Place detailing tape on glass as desired. I choose to use two sizes of tape and place lines on the glasses close to each other near either the upper middle or bottom of the glass. Two glasses with lines at the bottom and two with lines at the upper middle to add variety to the set.
STEP 3: Add glitter paint by dabbing it onto the glass. I went for a fading effect with the most concentrated part of the paint between the two pieces of tape and fading out as I dabbed the paint away from the tape. NOTE: Keep the paint an inch below the lip or the glass at it shouldn't reach anyone's mouth when drinking from the glass.
STEP 4: Let dry for one hour and then add a second coat.
STEP 5: Let dry one hour and remove tape.
