Very Merry Martini Glasses Craft Tutorial

Another great find at the dollar store - martini glasses with a green tint!  It just screams decorate me for Christmas!!  So I did!

You will need:

-  Fine red glitter
-  Chunkier red glitter
-  White glue and/or Mod Podge
-  Resin - I use Easy Cast


-  Disposable paint brush
-  Parchment paper

Here is the video tutorial:




Directions for fully glittered stem:

1.  Brush Mod Podge or white glue all over the stem and base of the glass.

2.  Sprinkle glitter on the glue/Mod Podge and shake of any excess.

Tip:  Work over a tray, so you can put excess glitter back into container

3.  Set aside to fully dry.

4.  When dry, prepare the resin you are using according to the directions on the package.  Drip the resin over the stem and make sure it is all covered.

Tip:  I set my glasses on three water bottle caps, to lift it of of the paper, so the resin would not pool around the base.  Periodically, I wipe the bottom edge of the base with the disposable paint/foam brush, to wipe of the drips.  Eventually, it will stop dripping and you can set it directly on the parchment paper.

5.  Allow to dry.


Directions for stripes and polka dots:

1.  With plain white glue, make stripes along the stem.  Use the fine red glitter and sprinkle on the wet glue.  Tap off any excess.

Tip:  Work over a tray, so you can put excess glitter back into container

2.  Draw polka dots on the base and sprinkle with glitter and tap off any excess.

3.  Set aside to fully dry.

4.  Gently brush off any excess glitter that may be stuck to the glass.  Drip resin over the entire stem and base.

Tip:  I set my glasses on three water bottle caps, to lift it of of the paper, so the resin would not pool around the base.  Periodically, I wipe the bottom edge of the base with the disposable paint/foam brush, to wipe of the drips.  Eventually, it will stop dripping and you can set it directly on the parchment paper.

5.  Allow to dry.

Tip:  With the clear bottom of this one, you will likely have some resin that seeps under.  It will likely be cloudy because it was on the parchment paper.  You can do one of two things.  First, you can take clear topcoat nail polish and apply it to the cloudy resin and that will make it shiny and clear.  That may be enough.  If it still shows too much, make a very small batch of resin and turning the glass upside down, apply to the underneath of the base and allow to dry.  That should fully remedy the situation!

Too cute, I had an ornament exchange yesterday and someone brought a santa martini class. It got stolen and froze in a second, so I said I would just make one. Well, now I might really give it a try. Thanks for sharing.
