Hello my name is Stephanie Amber Orefice and my name literally means “Crowned One, Jewel, Jeweler.” Therefore, I believe that deep from the DNA of who I am springs a love of all things glittery, sparkly and fancy. I was born this way.
I am one of the few people in the world who thinks that anything can be made better with a little sparkle added to it, so I want to show you an easy way to make a regular glass a little fancy.
These glasses were super duper cheap at a thrift store. I loved the pink tint and took them up a notch with a super simple DIY that will have you turning ALL THE THINGS fancy.
You will need:
- Glasses (you could even use plastic ones!)
- mod podge
- glitter of any color you’d like
- something to mix the glitter with
ONE // TAPE OFF THE GLASS
Start by taping off any area of the glass you don’t want covered in glitter. I chose to only tape off the stem of my glasses because I didn’t want a hard line at the top of the glitter. You could choose to make stripes or a line or you could get really fancy and use the outline of a shape!
TWO // MIX THE GLITTER MAGIC
Add mod podge and glitter to a tray/disposable cup/etc. You could even use an old shoebox lid or something like that. This thing will be COVERED in glitter, so don’t use a bowl from the kitchen. You’ll want a LOT of glitter in the mixture to make sure it fully coats the glass.
THREE // PAINT THE GLASS
Turn the glass upside down and begin painting. I did mine in layers, doing a thick layer all around the top of the stem, then slowly working my way around in long strokes to avoid smudge marks. You can add as much or as little glitter as you’d like. I wanted mine to look like it had been loosely stroked so I tapered off the glitter at the end. You can add a few layers if you’d like the glitter to be more solid.
FOUR // TAKE THE TAPE OFF
Once the glitter mixture is almost dried, take the tape off the bottom and voila! You have just transformed some glasses into something I would love to drink out of should I ever come to your house.
I immediately added a fancy drink to my glasses and topped with paper straws to enjoy my new fancy drinkware. My fancy drink is actually a one-can wonder! I picked up two flavors of DASANI® Sparkling from Target over the weekend (they’re currently on sale for $2.99!). I got Tropical Pineapple and Raspberry Lemonade. In my quest to make everything more fancy I opted to use frozen fruit in place of ice cubes to keep the drinks cold AND not worry about losing the fizz as the ice melts! I filled my fancy glasses up with frozen raspberries (for the raspberry lemonade!) and frozen mangoes (for the tropical pineapple).
It’s a great way to make staying hydrated a little fancy as the winter melts into warmer weather. DASANI has released new flavors that sound DE-LIC-IOUS. Strawberry Guava, White Peach and Blood Orange… yes please! They’re all available at Target (and they’re $2.99 right now! Go go go!)
