It’s time for another themed challenge from the Silhouette Creators! This month we are focusing on “Fall-o-ween”, where the creators could pick a fall OR Halloween project to work on.
For my project, I wanted something really “bewitching”, hee hee. I found this fun design in the Silhouette shop that read, “This is where the magic happens” accompanied by a witchy hat and bats. I considered putting it on a sign first, then a pumpkin. But as I thought about it, I realized often times the “magic” for me is a well earned glass of wine – so why not put it on a wine glass??
To make this Halloween wine glass, you will need:
gloss enamel paint
parchment or wax paper
I originally intended to make two glasses, but I made a mess of the second one, so I ended up with one. #Craftingproblems
This is an easy method, and perfect for a spooky Halloween goblet look. In my head I was thinking of some ornate, witchy goblet such as the Evil Queen from Snow White might use. So I placed the glass upside down on the parchment paper and started dribbling paint around the base of the bell.
I didn’t want the paint to get too far down, especially not anywhere near where lips would touch, so after a few minutes, I flipped the glass right side up so the paint would dribble the other way, down the stem.
While the paint dried, I sized and cut my chosen design onto green and purple vinyl. I wanted two colors to make the design on the glass more interesting. Once my designs were cut, I weeded away the excess so only my design lingered. Since I intended to layer the colors, I also removed the words of the green design that I didn’t want to show on the glass.
Using transfer tape, apply your design to your wine glass. Smooth the vinyl over the glass, and clean off any fingerprints. Now pour yourself a potion and enjoy! Everything tastes better in a wine glass, so feel free to make a cocktail, mocktail, or even just apple cider!
