Can you take a razor and scrape the writing off? Can you just embrace that you have goofy wine glasses and use them as a conversation piece in the future? Break the glass and make art?

Are your names/dates on with glass paint or is it etched in the glass. If paint I would let them soak in acetone/nail polish remover which would take the paint off. Then just give them a really good wash and presto 36 wine glasses to donate or give as gifts or whatever.

ehoffy :  search registries for your names and wedding date and see if you have twins and give it to them?

Can you strategically paint them or do a little craft with them? Pinterest has lots of ideas that cover parts of the wine glass.

To add to Jessi2883’s suggestion, why not have a wine glass painting party with all of your girlfriends! Just make sure to get thick enough paint to cover the etching. Otherwise, just throw them in the recycling ๐Ÿ˜•.

ehoffy :  Donate them to a charity thrift shop. Someone will buy them and the thrift shop programs will benefit.

Depending on how the etching was applied, you might be able to turn them into frosted glass. You can get glass etching paste from a craft store and see if when it is applied over the letters it cancels out. If it does, you can coat the glass or make patterns. Unfortunatly, this ill only work if the glasses were originally etched this way, but it’s worth a shot!

Whatever you do, I would NOT give them out as favors + the correct ones. Too tacky.

Option 1.  Put them in the recycling.


Option 2.  Have a party on the date etched on the gasses and use them at that XD

You could decorate them with glitter like below then give them away or use them for future house parties.

also girls pls check your local recycling guidelines. You can’t always recycle wine and drinking glasses because they have been tempered and heat treated and can contaminate the whole recycling run! Please please check first ๐Ÿ™‚
