There is one word that describes this time of year……FESTIVE! However, I think all celebrations are festive. Events and holidays like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, New Year’s and Mardi Gras to name a few. Today, I’d like to share three quick projects that you can whip up in no time to make your next celebration festive!
#FabulouslyFestive Stemware, Coasters & Drink Charms
Don’t these look fun? And you know what the best part is, all of your crafting supplies are available at Jo-Ann Stores! Yup! One stop craft supply shopping. Could it get any easier than that? The only additional item you need to pick up are your wine/champagne glasses. Are you ready to get started?
First gather your supplies (from Jo-Ann’s, of course).
Krylon Metallic Spray Paint (Silver or Gold – your choice)
Elmer’s Craft Bond
Blue Painter’s Tape
Glitter Tulle (this stuff is awesome!) 1/8 yard of each color of your choice
1/8 Yard White Felt
1/8 Yard Burlap
Stemware – Your choice of type and number you choose. Glasses are available at your local dollar store or pick some up from Goodwill
Let’s update our glasses first. After removing any tags/labels and making sure your glasses are clean and dry, mask off any parts you don’t want covered in paint. I chose to just paint the stems. I also masked off the top of my glass so that none of the spray paint went inside the glass. In a well ventilated area (or outside like me) spray paint your glass using light coats. Metallic paint dries super quickly!
Next, let’s make some jazzy coasters. Cut your burlap into squares and place on top of newspaper or a grocery bag (like I did). Like your glasses, spray paint your burlap in a well ventilated area or outside. Cut your felt into squares a tad larger than your burlap squares. Once your painted burlap has dried, spray the unpainted side and one side of the felt with Elmer’s craft bond. Then stick these two sides together. Once dried (about 10 minute), trim off the excess felt.
Now weren’t these project easy peasy? What simple ways to make every holiday fabulously festive!
