This holiday season (yes, I can say that, since Hanukkah is 3 weeks away) is upon us, and this year on the blog I'll be giving some ideas for DIY gifts to give!
The first gift idea is an easy one- Chalkboard Wine Glasses:
Now, truth be told I actually made these a while ago as a housewarming gift for our friends, but they would serve equally well for a holiday gift! They're not only affordable, but they're also a useful gift to give!
What you'll need to make it happen:
- 4 wine glasses (you can get them at a dollar store or Target!)
- Chalkboard Spray Paint
- Painter's Tape
How to Make it Happen:
Step 1: Make sure your glass bases are fully clean. Any dirt or dust will show up as nasty bumps on your glasses!
Step 2: Tape the entire stem of the glasses, starting about half an inch up from the bottom.
Step 3: Spray from about 8 inches away the base of your glasses, careful not to get any on the rest of the glass.
Step 4: WAIT FOR IT TO DRY. Don't skip this step!
Step 5: Spray with a second coat, and let dry again.
Step 6: Remove the tape and allow to fully dry overnight
Step 6: Wrap up with a bottle of wine & some chalk, and you've got a great DIY gift!
They're a fun, practical gift to give- that your friends/family can use again and again!
Have any great DIY gift ideas?
