Hello everyone! Today’s post is a bit late. I meant to have this up Thursday, but we have been travelling today to DC and just settled into our hotel for the evening. I will probably be a little sparse with posting for the next few days, but will definitely be posting instagrams daily of our time here in DC. So, today I have a fun and easy retro project for you. I am going to show you how to make these fun scribble glasses! A while back I had scored a set of vintage Hazel Atlas pink spaghetti scribble painted glasses at my local thrift store. They are by far some of my absolute favorite glasses! I thought it would be fun to try and make some myself, and I had a blast! They are so fun and easy to create!
Here’s What You Need:
*Glass dishes (tumblers, shakers, bowls, etc…)
*Martha Stewart Paint color of your choice in flat matte
*Martha Stewart Paint Bottle with Fine tip tops
The first thing you want to do is clean your glasses with rubbing alcohol. Let dry. You can add the paint to the bottle that came with the tip caps, or you can twist the smallest fine tip cap onto the original paint bottle. Test the flow a little first on a scrap piece of chipboard. Now squeezing the bottle as you go, paint some scribbly lines in small sections around your glassware. I made some crosshatching marks and then added some flowy scribbly marks to blend the sections together. You want it to look more free-handed and random than uniform. Once you have painted your scribblies all over the glassware, set aside to dry. The greatest thing about the Martha Stewart plant is that it hardens to a hand washable finish if it is left to air cure for a few weeks. Once your dishes have cured, you are ready to start using them. Yay!
I LOVE how these tumblers turned out! In fact, I liked them so much I made some salt and pepper shakers to match. This is such a simple and fun diy! It took me less than twenty minutes to complete. The best part is that you can make them in any color you like and on any type of glassware. You could make some fun martini glasses, a set of plates, or even a cake stand. Make some for yourself, or make them as gifts for your friends and family. They will love them! I hope I have inspired some of you to give this one a try! This would be a fantastic diy for a group or party too! You’ll have a blast!
