DIY Glitter Champagne Glasses

Ahh, New Years Eve. It’s the holiday that probably sneaks up on me more than any other.

As you know, this year I’m heading down South to Charleston to ring in 2015 with three of my closest friends—Abbi, Allie, and Mike.

Since I know I won’t have a lot of prep time the week before NYE because of Christmas feasts and Boxing Day sales, I went ahead and made the crew some DIY glitter champagne glasses for our pre-South Carolina Aquarium Festivities.

Yes, I am sure Mike is thrilled he has a gold glitter champagne flute awaiting him in the Palmetto State.

Besides the fact that glitter will be everywhere when you’re done—just ask my roommate, thanks Jess!—these glitter champagne glasses are practically foolproof and look stunning.

Supplies // 

Champagne Glasses
Mod Podge
Foam Brushes
Gold Glitter—I used this.
Paper Plates

Directions //

1. Apply a generous amount of Mod Podge to the area of the champagne glass you want to cover. Painters tape could be used to create straight lines if desired—I didn’t have any, so I freehanded mine with the brush.

2. Sprinkle the glitter over the glass onto a clean paper plate. I then took the excess glitter that was on the clean paper plate and sprinkled it over the flute and into another paper plate to avoid wasting glitter. It’s important to use a plate that doesn’t have any mod podge on it or the glitter will get clumpy.

3. Repeat this process until the champagne flute is completely covered, then let dry for 5-10 minutes.

4. Paint a thick coat of mod podge over the glitter to seal everything. This will prevent a glitter trail throughout your house. I was very generous with the amount of mod podge I used for this sealant layer, so don’t be afraid to cake it on. Even though goes on white, it does dry clear.

5. Pop that bubbly and enjoy!
