Look at Etsy.  I bought some handpainted ones from Fizz and she had lots of cute designs

Okay, after looking at these I love the painted wine glasses.  What a great wedding favor they would be too.  Since I am still stuck at home, unable to drive or even walk, what a great way to spend my time too.  Thinking I could easily paint these while I am stuck having to just sit around the house, and you can get them at dollartree.com cheap.  If you got these at a wedding to use and then allowed to take them home with you, would you consider that a good wedding favor or not?

Hi Ladies,

I just wanted to let you know that hand painted wine glasses are a great bridesmaid gift. I do them for a living, so I am well aware of how popular they are! You’ve made a great choice.

I just wanted to advise you to make sure you are using the proper paint (enamels for glass/ceramics) and that you should “fire” the glasses once you have finished painting them. “Firing” will cure the paint and help keep it from chipping or scraping off. You can do this by placing the glasses on a cookie sheet in a cold oven. Turn the oven up to 350 degrees. Once the temp reaches 350 degrees, bake the glasses for 30 minutes. At the end of 30 minutes, turn the oven off, prop the oven door open a little bit, and let the glasses cool in the oven. Once they are cool, they are ready!

@tabbi…we’re talking regular old wine glasses from the 4 packs at walmart right? Just making sure I don’t crack the “cheapo” glasses in the oven! LOL Love this idea!

@Anchors – Yep, just regular old wine glasses. As long as you start with a cold oven, you’ll be fine!

Also, when you bake the glasses, the paint will actually get a little bit of a shine to it. Also be advised that reds and blues will appear to “run” a little bit when you bake the glasses. But not enough to be a problem. I’ve never had a complaint and I’ve done thousands of them. If you don’t bake them, the paint will peel and chip.

Oops! When you put the glasses in the oven, put them in upside down. They should be resting on the rim of the glass, not the base.

Grrrrr I went to walmart thinking I could find the correct paints and all they had were acryllics for pourus surfaces. I was so excited to try this! The closest craft store is an hour away.

This is such a good idea, I found them at Macy’s and they were around 30 dollars a piece, I am pretty artsy, so I thought I could tackle this project myself! and they are not yet finished, but they are turning out absolutely adorable!! I am giving them to my girls when I ask them to be my bridesmaid’s…. along with a little cute note inside, hoping they will keep them for all the wedding stuff to come as well! I will post a picture of mine when I am finished!!
