There are several tutorials on Pinterest and for the templates, you could just print out a pic of something you like and just cut out the out line of it.

Those are super cute, btw, and I’d be really excited as a Bridesmaid or Best Man to get one as a gift!

Edit: Ahhh, there ya go. Already got some advice 🙂

I had full intentions on making my own for my bridesmaids, but Fiance ended up doing most of the work.  We created stencils on our own, I freehanded the writing, and Fiance did most of the painting.  He had to use many, many coats, especially for the white, so be prepared for that.  I’m thrilled with the results, but it was a lot of work and a lot of time – thank goodness Fiance enjoys things like that, because I’m not sure that I would have ever completed them!

Hi! Good luck on your project, but please remember that if you are borrowing the photo of the artist that painted those glasses, you must provide a link to the source of the picture. If you do not, you are potentially subjecting yourself to liability for copyright infringement. 

I wish you luck in painting your wine glasses : )

One piece of advice that I’ve seen for other glass items is to actually print out what you want and then tap it to the INSIDE of the glass so you can see it through, and then trace over it.  That way you can pick your font, and you have something to go with while you’re doing it, and once it’s dry, you just peel the tape off.   


I painted wine glasses for a wine event we had, and I used paint pens.  They worked really well for the writing and you can get all different kinds of tips and colors.  I just wish I had known about the printing stuff out and taping it to the inside before I freehanded things.

I made glasses for my girls and it was fun but tedious. Here’s the link for my tutorial: http://hiscraftybride.blogspot.com/p/for-ladies.html It list the type of paints to use and everything. All you need is patience and a steady hand. Have fun. :o)

@jlripl: That is a BRILLIANT idea. If I ever DIY something like this, I’ll definitely be using the tape-the-image-on-the-inside tip!

MrsDiddles:  Did you have to use a certain type of paint for the glasses? If so where did you buy it? I’m thinking of doing this for my MH, my mom and my grooms mom.
