Chalk Board Wine Glasses - Finished Look

Here they are! Perfect for entertaining as well as having a fun family dinner! This was one of the easiest projects I have ever completed and will be making a few dozen as gifts for birthdays, accompanied with a bottle of wine! I wanted to share a couple of during the process pictures so you can see just how easy it was to literally dip the stems into the paint!

I barely dented the can of Rust-Oleum's Specialty ChalkBoard Paint in Black - but the best part of this product is that it's available in 12 different colors from Raspberry to Kona - talk about specializing that perfect birthday gift for your friend - celebrate Valentine's Day with personalized Wine or Champagne glasses dipped in Rust-Oleum's Specialty ChalkBoard Paint in Fresco Red!

Project Materials
*Wine or Champagne Glasses
*Paper towels

Project Steps

*Wash and fully dry your glasses
*Wipe them with the acetone
*Dry well
*Mix ChalkBoard Paint very well with a stir stick
*Dip each stem of the glass directly into the quart paint
*Gently pull up as you take out the painted stem and swirl the glass - allowing the paint to drip directly back into the can
*Place glass down on a piece of cardboard and every so often go back and lift the glass up so that it does not stick to the cardboard
*Allow to fully dry 24 hours
*Season each painted stem by taking the rounded edge of the chalk and rubbing chalk onto the surface
*Wipe off and now you can customize each wine glass
