I found a really cheap set of champagne flutes that I want to transform for our reception. Right now they are plain but with this gold band around the lip that I really am not fond of. Is there any way I can paint or disguise the gold band? And I thought about writing the words bride and groom on the flutes themselves. But, would I do it in paint or marker? And if so, any particular kind? Hope there are some crafty ladies out there who can help me.

Acrylic paint should work… I’m not sure I understand correctly though- you want to paint over the gold band and make it a different color?

I just don’t like the gold band around the rim of the flutes but they were such a great steal, I had to get them. I am trying to find a way to either take the gold rim off or disguise it if possible. If not, I will leave them be. But I am wanting to paint bride and groom on the flutes so thanks for the tip!

If you paint them you would want to use enamel paint, not acrylic. Acrylic will flake or peel off, especially if it is at top where you will be drinking from, but enamel paint will cure. It is meant to be used on glass and then baked or left to sit for a couple of days to cure. Hope that helps 🙂
Just another idea as far as the words bride and groom go…I used scrapbooking rub-on transfers that said bride and groom and they look wonderful. I don’t remember where I found that idea (maybe from another bee?) but i love it! Yes, they will probably rub-off or scratch off over time but as long as it isn’t at the top where you are drinking from it should be fine.

There is a glass paint that you can buy from Michaels. You paint as normal on the glass, put the glasses in the oven and THEN turn the oven to 350 for 20 min. THEN turn off the oven leaving the glasses in the oven until they cool off. You can put the glasses is the dishwasher, etc and no flaking or chipping whatsoever.
I did wine glasses with it. Worked like a charm.
