Toast to the special day with custom decorated champagne glasses! If you’re looking for an easy and creative way to add a touch of sparkle to your wedding or wedding reception, decorating champagne glasses is a must-do. Not only are decorated champagne glasses a great way to add some extra sparkle, but they also make for great keepsakes - guests can take them home as a memento of the special day. Let’s look at how to get started on making your own unique creations.
The first step in making your own DIY decorated champagne glasses is gathering supplies. You will need champagne glasses, Mod Podge glue, glitter (in any color of your choice), tape, scrapbook paper or thin cardstock (optional). Once you have all the necessary materials gathered together, it’s time for the fun part - decorating!
Decorating the Glasses
We have included some of our favorite decorated champagne glasses in this blog. For this project you will be creating two different types of decorations - one for the base of the glass and one for the bowl of the glass. To begin, use tape to make a pattern on the base of each glass. This could be something simple such as stripes or polka dots, or something more elaborate such as hearts or stars. Be creative and come up with whatever pattern strikes your fancy! Next, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge glue over each patterned area and sprinkle glitter over top while wet. Allow time for everything to dry before proceeding with step three.
Now take scrapbook paper or thin cardstock cut into circles large enough to fit around the bowl of each glass and use another thin layer of Mod Podge glue over top. Sprinkle glitter over these as well while they are still wet and allow everything time to dry before moving onto step four.
Finally, use a thin layer of Mod Podge glue over top once more in order to seal everything in place - this will help ensure that none of your hard work falls off during handling or washing! Allow time for everything to dry completely before using them at your event.
With just a few simple steps you can make custom decorated champagne glasses perfect for weddings, wedding receptions, and other special occasions! Gather up supplies like Mod Podge glue, glitter, scrapbook paper/cardstock circles and start getting creative; you’ll be amazed by what you can come up with when designing these beautiful decorations! Before you know it you’ll have sparkling custom creations ready to wow guests at your next special event! So go ahead – get crafty today!
How to Decorate Champagne Glasses for Any Special Occasion
The clinking of champagne flutes is a classic symbol of celebrations- from weddings and bridal showers to bachelorette and birthday parties. However, to make the occasion truly memorable, why not decorate the glasses themselves? As an art history student, I have always loved finding ways to add a personal touch to special events. In this blog, I will be sharing some ideas and tips on how to decorate champagne glasses for any special occasion.
Start with a base: Before getting into the details, it's important to have a solid base to work with. This can be achieved by buying plain champagne glasses or by simply covering any designs that are already present. One option for covering existing designs is to use a stencil with some adhesive tape and spray paint. Remember to use a paint that is safe for glassware, and to work in well-ventilated areas.
Personalize with names and dates: If you're decorating the glasses for a wedding or similar event, adding the names and dates of the couple is a great way to bring some personalization. This can be done with vinyl decals, stencils, or even hand-painting. Use a fine-tipped brush and a steady hand to ensure a neat finish.
Add some sparkle: For a touch of glamour, add some glitter or rhinestones. These can be glued on with a clear adhesive or even melted onto the glass with a specialized tool. If you prefer the look of glitter, glitter spray paint or even nail polish can give a more subtle effect.
Experiment with textures: Different textures can add depth and interest to the design. For example, you could add a layer of lace or fabric to the base of the glass using some Mod Podge. Alternatively, you could add some texture by wrapping the stem of the glass in twine or ribbon.
Consider the occasion: Finally, it's important to consider the occasion when deciding on a design. For mothers day, you might want to incorporate floral patterns or pastel colors. For a bachelorette party, you could go for a more bold and playful design. Always keep in mind the theme and mood of the occasion for the best results.
Decorating champagne glasses is a fun and simple way to add a personal touch to any special event. From adding some glitter to experimenting with textures and personalizing with names and dates, there are endless possibilities for creating a stylish and unique look. Remember to always use safe materials for glassware, and enjoy the process of bringing a little bit of art to your celebration. Cheers to your creativity!
