Wine glasses are the perfect finishing touch at any table setting but at especially wedding receptions. Traditionally, wine glasses are usually made of glass or crystal, but they bear very little in the way of decorations. In fact, many people find their wine glasses down-to-earth and simply put, all too boring.
Instead of trying to find wine glasses that will match your design vision, why not take matters into your own hands? There are plenty of DIY ways to decorate wine glasses, and you don’t even have to break your budget doing it. To get started, all you need is your imagination and a few supplies.
Use Etching Cream
Etching cream is the easiest and most affordable way to make a huge impact in the way that your wine glasses look. You can transfer any text or image, as long as you can cut it out as a stencil. Better yet, why not purchase a pre-cut stencil that matches your vision? There are thousands of stencils available online, and if you don’t find the ones you want, you can even go as far as ordering custom stencils.
Wine Glass Charms
Since wine glasses are extremely popular for all occasions, many artisans and merchants online sell wine glass charms. However, you can take your own approach to creating wine glass charms by purchasing some charms, beads, and crafting wire to shape the loops. The finished charms can be looped around the bottom of the glass or left hanging off the sides.
Don’t have time to pull out the etching cream? That’s no problem because personalized labels are just as perfect as place cards. You can print labels from your computer, and all you need is a label sheet and the right text. However, if you’re not computer savvy and want to do away with technology, chalkboard labels are a safe bet. Just apply the labels to the glasses and using the chalk of your choice, you can write names, draw designs or even put down favorite quotes.
Big Finish With A Ribbon
If you’re completely inept as a crafter, you can cheat your way through decorating by purchasing one or two spools of designer ribbon. Just tie a bit of ribbon around the bottom of your wine glass and make a big bow.
You don’t need to be an artist to make a big splash with the wine glass decorating ideas outlined above!
