Chalkboard Wineglasses

Ever since my post on my love for all things wine related I have been dying to make chalkboard wine glasses. My inspiration came from this blog post that I found on Pinterest. So, last night, for my good friend Emily's birthday, I decided to get all the supplies and make a set together for part of her gift! So it ended up being an interactive DIY gift, doesn't that sound fun?! Well it was!

This is what we made:

This is how we made them:

Supplies:
Wineglasses with stems (the dollar store has a good selection)
Chalkboard paint (from a can)
Painters tape
Paintbrush

First, tape the wineglass stems to mark how far you want to paint up the stem...

Then, start painting. We had to do 3-4 coats of paint on each wineglass. We used a hairdryer to speed up the drying process so we could apply the coats faster.

Once all coats are dry, you can peel off the painters tape.

I allowed mine to dry for another hour or so and then I used a piece of chalk to prep the chalkboard.

Then, I poured a glass of wine!

If you try this yourself, make sure you remember to hand wash the wine glasses after use! I don't know how well the chalkboard paint would hold up in a dishwasher!
