i’ve never painted on glass- yet. but im planning on doing this for our bridal party and smaller ones for our daughters. you can buy sheets of vinyl sticker paper and then just pick a font and print it off and cut it out. you’d have to be careful with an exacto knife but totally doable. im going to paint them though and by sticking the words on the inside of the glas and just tracing the word you should be ok. if any bees have paint recommendations i would appreciate it as well!

Hmmm just a thought, why don’t you etch it. I’ve seen those kits at Michaels for that and they are really pretty, not sure if they can go in the dishwasher though. But like I said in my post, I think once you bake it and apply a sealer it should be ok.

You can buy premade vinyl letters at Michaels. I’ve never seen script lime this, but perhaps you can find the lettering on etsy for cheap? Painting is not horribly difficult, but it will likely have some brush strokes.

i painted on glass once when i was a kid for my godfather’s birthday (i think i painted a vase or a jar or something) when he opened it and put it on our table, it went on the tablecloth, it left a purple stain that is still there to this day (we do have another tablecloth that we usually use but we always pull out the one with the stain for his birthday!) so just be careful about that

Do you have a Cricut? Or whatever those things are called? I am pretty sure I know a girl who makes vinyl stickies to put on Scentsy warmers.

@SuperDuperBrit:  I think I purchased a 2-pack for around $5? There are name brand ones, but I bought the Michael’s version. Just make sure it says that you can paint on glassware.

Baking them in the oven technically makes them dishwasher safe, but I would still just handwash to be on the safe side!
