A New Year, A New Blog...

Well, lets see how good I am about keeping up with it…

A new phenomenon in my life – Pinterest! I love it! I wanted
to share a couple things I have made from posts.
First up...

Chalkboard Wine Glasses:

This was my Christmas
Gift to my blog friends.

First, find your wine glasses. I wanted some chunky big
glasses, and I found great ones at the dollar store.

Next, your paint: The can didn’t have an opening large enough
for the bottom of the glasses to go into, so I poured it into a plastic Tupperware.

Prepare your glasses: I used the blue painters tape to keep
a straight line on all the glasses. The hardest thing about making these is how
to get them to dry… I tried to get creative and made these little foil cups for
the excess paint to fall in.

I let them dry for 2 days, and here is the finished product!
I forgot to take a picture of them at the end, but my friend Steph was sweet
enough to post this on FB.

I was one of the lucky recipients of these wine glasses...and I love them! I need to make some more! They were a HUGE hit at our Christmas party---and nobody lost their drink or drank the wrong one.
Pinterest=AMAZING! Thanks for sharing it with me :-)
