Where did you find the glasses in this pic?  They are super cute!  I don’t think I have the patience to make them myself, but would possibly consider buying them!

My sister’s painted glasses before — and they always come out beautifully!

I was actually considering doing a bit of glass painting to weave into parts of the wedding (mainly as one decorative element of our reception).  There are some great sources of info online with tips!

If you have an IKEA nearby, their glassware and candle prices cannot be beat.  We got all of wedding party’s champange glasses there and etched them for the wedding.

I LOVE those glasses, I was just doing an online price “research” when I saw your post. I managed to get one today from ebay for $11. My luck though, the only one at that price. So now I am debating on painting some, but it seens a little harder than I thought and the only sets I’ve seen is for glass etching.

@bruschetta .. what kind of paint does your sister use? and have you tried it before, is it acheviable without having too be a crafting whiz?

My mom painted some wine glasses and a holder for my aunt and uncle one year- they turned out great! I think she had to “bake” them in the oven though after she finished painting.. no too sure on that process though. Awesome inspiration photos though- let us know how they turn out!!

Enamel paint is what you’re looking for. It will be in your Michael’s or Joanne’s in the aisle with the acrylic paint. I’ve only used it on ceramics but I believe it can also be used on glass (check the back of the bottle, obviously). It comes in every color you can imagine. You paint it, let it dry for 48 hours, then bake it in the oven and it will become permanent. While you’re working, however, it is easy to wipe away with a damp paper towel in case you make mistakes.
