During a week’s summer vacation at the beach, I saw many ads for wine glass painting classes and I thought, “This is something I could definitely do myself, no $30 class fee required.” And so could you!
I created some fun summer designs and have offered them in this post as a printable template so you can create some beautiful summer, beach-themed glasses. These are fun to enjoy at home and also make great gifts! At my house, they get the most use by my tween who loves to drink milk from fancy glasses.
Summer Wine Glass Painting Craft: Materials
- Wine glasses: I like the stemless glasses from Dollar Tree for projects like this.
- Acrylic paint pens. You can pick these up at Michael’s or on Amazon. The paints linked are my current favorite, both for affordability and how well they write.
- Printable template (plus printer, paper, scissors, and tape)
- Oven and baking sheet.
- Nail polish remover and Q-Tips.
Summer Wine Glass Painting Craft: Directions
Print the template and cut out each one that you’d like to use. Then, tape it to the inside of your wine glass. Use your paint pens to trace the template and freestyle when it feels right. If you make a mistake, a Q-Tip dipped in nail polish remover will act as a perfect eraser.
After you’ve painted your glasses, to finish your designs you’ll need to cure them in the oven.
- Place your glasses on a baking sheet, then place them in your cold oven.
- Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees.
- Allow your glasses heat with the oven, then bake for 30 minutes after the oven has reached the full 350 degree temperature.
- Turn off the oven and allow the glasses to cool to room temperature before removing from the oven.
- Your glasses will be ready to use 72 hours after baking and should be able to go through the top rack of the dishwasher.
