As women we have a lot of beautiful things, from clothes, jewelry, dishes, but what about wine glasses? Recently, I became tired of looking at my wine glasses, they are all clear, they don’t reflect my personality. Also I don’t set a glass down at a dinner party or it’s lost forever in the, “Who’s drink is this? Collection,” until they all get tossed at the end of the night. I decided try some DIY projects to make decorative wine glasses. Here I share with you some do-it-yourself blah-to-beautiful wine glass tips that will reflect your personal style and may even be the talk of the next dinner party!
2 Fun DIY Decorative Wine Glasses Projects
A Quick Side Note: Wine Glass Charms
A quick and easy way to make glasses personalized without permanently altering their appearance is to use wine glass charms They are sold at almost every store that sales home goods and also on ebay.
Wine glass charms are flexible and open to go around the stem of a glass and gently rest on its base. If you are hosting an event for memorial day or talking with the other soccer moms, you can choose a theme to reflect your event. They are a great idea whether even after you have created your own DIY decorative wine glasses.

Use painters tape in areas to make clean lines, such as the rim and very base. Design as you please, set for an hour to make sure Permenamel is dry.If you desire to paint the base, simply flip the wine glass over onto the rim and paint as desired. If you have any additional accents such as rhinestones, place with glue and allow to set for about an hour.
*You can purchase Permenamel at your local paint store, Permenamel allows for air drying and quick dry so that you don’t have to go over it with a finishing paint or spray.
Decoupage DIY Decorative Wine Glasses
Another way to decorate wine glasses is with tissue paper. You can use your old holiday or birthday tissue paper to decorate the glass.
Decoupage DIY Decorative Wine Glasses Materials:
- Tissue Paper
- MOD PODGE Plaid Dishwasher Safe Gloss
- Thin paint brush
- sequins (optional)
How To Make Decoupage DIY Decorative Wine Glasses:
Begin by cleaning the wine glasses and laying newspaper down for easy clean up. Cut your tissue paper of choice it sections, I find it easiest to cut the paper about 1 inch in width and 5 inches in length. Depending on the look you want to achieve you can cut them into squares, smaller rectangles or even circles. Next dip paint brush into Mod Podge and begin running the glue onto the tissue paper. Don’t be alarmed that the glue is white, it dries clear. Continue until desired look is achieved. If you have any loose ends at the rim or stem of the glass, cut as desired or place tissue paper horizontally on stem toad a unique touch. If you have accent pieces such as sequences, add as desired.
Once decorated, make sure to hand wash your new decorative wine glasses. I hope these ideas at a special touch to dinner parties, gatherings and events. Which style of DIY decorative wine glasses do you think you will make?
