Dress up inexpensive ordinary table and barware with this easy DIY painted glasses project. An easy way to add a little color and charm to your tablescape.
I've always loved the way some people can create painted wine glasses. However, my freehand is not the best so I thought I'd try making some retro-looking glasses with easy to create painted dots.

- First, make sure your glasses are clean and dry.
- Place a piece of white paper inside so that you can easily see the area that you are working on.
- This paint is thin almost transparent and tends to bubble so you will want to dab it on a couple of times or add a couple of coats.
4. Use different size brushes and whatever design you prefer to make a unique look. I started at the top and then spaced my dots evenly about vertically. Then offset the next row to fill the glass with dots all around.
5. To make the paint permanent place the glasses on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake them according to the manufacturer's directions.
I think this hand-painted glassware, especially the short ones with gold dots, would be a great addition to your barware. They have a nice swanky look and would be perfect as a cocktail glass for all your whiskey and rocks drinkers.
The taller glasses will be used as water glasses and are a new addition to our Easter table. I love the way the pink and gold looks with all the other natural spring decor.
This simple glass painting idea can be done with any color you like in an easy dot pattern. The sponge brushes make it so easy and I think they would make a great gift too.
