Wine Glass Centerpieces

These delicate pieces aren’t just for sipping

Wine glasses can make perfect centerpieces!

If you have a party coming up and a few extra wine glasses stowed away in the cupboard, whip them out and use them to make a gorgeous and creative centerpiece, perfect for either an outdoor or indoor get-together.

Wine glasses are the perfect shape in which to assemble a beautiful centerpiece for almost any party theme — all they need are a few accessories and your creativity to amplify their potential. Sit them right side up and fill with sand, shells, glitter, candles, sprinkles, etc., or flip them over on top of some brightly colored flowers. When flipped over, their flat bottoms are perfect spots for balancing flowers, plants, and candles of many sizes.

Effortlessly elegant, yet still homey and comforting, wine glasses can do much more than hold your favorite brand of bubbly. So grab those lonely extra glasses and make a memorable centerpiece for your next party that your guests will adore!

Start by spraying the inside of the wine glass with white spray paint.

Then whiskers and a mouth using paint pens and set this glass aside to dry.

Now, while the glass is drying, you will cut out 2 ears from the burlap.

Then cut 2 years from the fabric, slightly smaller than the burlap ears.

Glue the fabric onto the burlap.

Now you will glue the ears on top of the dome of the glass by the stem.

Lastly, add a small ribbon bow between the ears.

Now, you can display your wine glass bunny!

Taking center stage at the table is the Seder plate, a special platter with six designated spots for the ceremonial foods that represent the Jews' experience of being enslaved and their Exodus from Egypt. The Seder plate can be anything from a special dish that has been passed down to a simple plastic version the most important thing is that it has spaces for each of the six foods referred to in the Haggadah.

Close to the table setting for the Seder leader should be a plate with three ceremonial pieces of matzah. Each piece should be tucked into a special cloth "envelope" with three sections if you don't own one of these, you can layer the matzo in a napkin folded to create three sections. There are moments in the Haggadah where we are directed to use these pieces of matzo.

When it comes to creating fun, whimsical DIY crafts at home, there always seems to be glitter involved. If you are a fan of all things mermaid and all things bling, you are going to love making these fun glasses. The best part is you can add any phrase, saying or image to your custom wine glasses using your Cricut Cutting Machine.

Supplies You Will Need

Before starting the bling glitter process, select and create the image you would like to use. I chose to combine a few images from LOVE SVG. They have a wonderful selection of FREE downloadable SVG’s that are perfect for creating your designs in Cricut Design Space. The font I used for this image is AR CENA and WATERMELON SCRIPT.

Measure the surface area of the glass and resize your design.

Cut, weed, and prep your vinyl design using 651 Outdoor vinyl. Apply your transfer tape and adhere you new decal to a clean wine glass.

Adhere Your Vinyl Design

Once you have your design on the glass you can then determine where and how much glitter you want. If you add glitter before putting your decal on, be sure to measure the surface area again to be sure your design will fit in the empty space

Bling It Up!

Adding glitter to glassware is not as complicated as it looks. If you use a waterproof mod podge to seal the glitter, it will not come off when wet and can be washed gently by hand.

Using a foam brush, apply a generous layer of mod podge where ever you would like the glitter to be.

Working quickly, sprinkle extra fine glitter over the mod podge, making sure to cover all areas that are wet.

Repeat this process once more (mod podge, then glitter)

Once it has dried, cover the entire glitter area in a generous coat of mod podge.

Once that is completely dry, let it sit and cure for at least 48 hours before using or washing. This curing process also applies to your 651 vinyl.

651 vinyl is permanent/outdoor vinyl and can be used and hand washed. It is not recommended that you put your finished project in the dishwasher or the microwave. The vinyl will melt, and your design will be ruined. Hand wash only with mild soap.

Enjoy Your Whimsical Mermaid Glitter Wine Glass!

Once your design has cured, enjoy a cold refreshing Summer Cocktail in your gorgeous Mermaid Glitter Wine Glass!
