Everyone loves a custom gift plus if you can save a few bucks in the process than it’s a win, win. This week I will be sharing a bunch of easy and budget friendly gifts that you can tackle on your own.


First project up is DIY polka dot wine glasses. This is such an easy project and you can go as crazy or tame as you like with your design.


All you need for this project is:
-WINE GLASSES: I picked some pretty ones with a gold rimmed at The Dollar Tree
-Martha Stewart Multi-Craft Paint
-Rubbing Alcohol (not pictured)
-Oven (not pictured)

Step 1: Before you start make sure to wipe glasses down with rubbing alcohol to remove fingerprints and let dry for 30 mins.

Step 2: Time to paint! You can do any type of design you like, but since I’m a polka dot lover I decided to go a bit dot crazy with these glasses. Use a pencil eraser to get the perfect circle.


Make sure to go light when adding paint to the eraser. This will help peaks from forming on your dots when you lift your eraser up.

{Truth be told I still got a couple of little peaks, but I just pretended they were character and handmade and kept going. Easy breezy.}

Step 3: Let paint dry overnight and then to speed up the curing process place in oven for 30 mins at 350 degrees.


So pretty and so easy! I love the mix of the mint paint with the gold rim. They go perfectly in my bar cart. Of course you can use whatever shade of paint you like. A gold or black would make for a great neutral gift. Add a bottle of wine and you are all set!

    Wow! I saw the title of this blog post and thought, “Whatever! I have seen DIY glasses and they look awful! What is she doing?! We aren’t going to DIY wine glasses!” I stand corrected.
    These. Are. Amazing.
