DIY Glitter Wine Glasses

My mom & dad are huge wine fanatics! Me, being a huge craft fanatic, decided to give a few of their wine glasses a makeover. It's easier than easy, takes no time at all, & makes a big, glittery difference!

                                                                   Here's what you need:

  • Wine Glass(es)
  • Loose Glitter
  • Paintbrush
  • Mod Podge (I used gloss finish)
  • Something to cover your work area (towel, etc..it gets pretty messy)


First, paint the bottom of the glass using your Mod Podge. Technically, you can paint anywhere you want glitter to be. I do not paint the top of the glass, because I personally wouldn't want my mouth on glitter and Mod Podge...
After getting a decent coat of the Mod Podge on the glass, generously sprinkle glitter all over it. You can tap the glass on the towel a few times to get the access glitter off as well.
...And that's pretty much it! 
After you let the glitter set for a few minutes, you can go over it with another coat of Mod Podge, juuuust to make sure it sticks nicely (:

  1. Hey there. I love this idea and was wondering if it would be dishwasher safe at all or if you know how well it stays with washing it by hand?

    1. I haven't tried them in the dishwasher because I was too scared! But with the mod podge coat over top they were fine when hand washed carefully.

    2. There is a dishwasher safe version of mod podge. I haven't tried it yet though.

    1. I realize this is an old post, but for anyone who might just now be seeing this...make sure you are using a modge podge that has a shiny finish. If you use original modge podge or the matte finish then the glitter won't sparkle anymore. Hope that helps someone!

  4. I heard that if you use triple thick it gives it a nice smooth coaing also. I am waiting for some triple thick to come so I can try this.

    1. Yes, definitely put triple thick on as the top coat. It takes a few coats and make sure you let it dry in between 24 hours. But after a few coats you will have a smooth finish and won't loose glitter when washing.

  5. Also, fine glitter works better.
