Chalkboard Drinkware Craft Tutorial

Turn dollar store wine glasses and beer mugs into unique glassware, where people can actually keep track of their cocktails!

I have seen this done where someone has dipped the wine glass into the paint, but I was able to find chalkboard spray paint and thought that might be a little easier.  I also thought this should not be limited to wine glasses, so I added a rectangle onto a beer mug for easy identification!

You will need:

-  Dollar store wine glasses and beer mugs
-  Chalkboard paint
-  Plastic shopping bag
-  Painter tape
-  Chalk

Here is the video tutorial:


1.  Tape off where you want the chalkboard paint to go
2.  Take a recycled grocery bag and cover the remaining area that will not be covered with chalkboard paint and tape it into place - this prevents major clean up later!
3.  Spray paint (according to paint directions)
4.  Allow to dry
5.  Remove bag and tape - follow directions on if you need to prime the chalkboard with chalk or not
That's it!

Hope you like it and give it a try!  Your guests will have a blast!

Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by!
