Those who know me know I’m a little (if “little” means “a whole freakin lot”) obsessed with Christmas. I love it. Every year I do a Christmas Craft Night for my friends (see one here) which is basically me having a bunch of my best ladies over and instructing us all as we do a fun Christmas craft. I always try to hold it at the beginning of December so that my friends can have their craft up all month, and this year is no exception!
Now before I open the doors to my loving swarm of wine drinking craft elves I first need to come up with a craft and of course test it.
So that is what I did last week.
Yes! This year we are making etched glass snowflake wine glasses! Each of ma’ ladies will leave with a lovely set of four. I’ve tested two (to do some troubleshooting) and am happy with knowing we can pull them off in an evening of crafting (and still have time to fill those glasses up with some wine).
And the best part about using etching cream rather than a frosted ‘paint’ is that the etching cream is permanent – meaning you can put these babies in the dishwasher with no concern about washing off all your hard work. And of course enjoy these glasses for years to come!
They were quite simple to make and the result is so polished looking. If you’re interested in trying it yourself, here is what you’ll need:
wine glasses – I chose these ones from Ikea
Christmas crazy? Me too! See all my Christmas posts here.
