Like all good ideas, I got this idea from pinterest. This is what the wine glasses with chalkboard paint bottoms looked like:
And this is how mine turned out! They were a hit at Christmas and still are every time they get brought out. Also, they made wonderful gifts. A couple glasses with a couple pieces of chalk with a bottle of wine.
How to make them yourself:
I bought 20 red wine glasses at the dollar store. One bottle of chalkboard spray paint and chalk. I’d say the total cost came to about $30, so just about $1.50 each!
Tape around the stem that you don’t want painted. And spray the bottoms, let dry and do it again for a total of three coats. Easy-peasy!
These lucky ladies got some this night.
Step 1: Purchase bouquets.
Step 2: Lay them out so you know what you have.
Step 3: Get Creative!! These two arrangements are what came out of the three bouquets.
Step 4: Enjoy for about a week! Good music, a good book, a glass of wine, and flowers make for a great night for the modern single girl.
Step 1. Cut wrapping paper from Paper Source into trees.
Step 2. Glue onto red fold over cards.
Step 3. Draw a gold glitter star on top of the tree.
And TA DA!

Holiday cards 2010! For some reason, I’ve always had an affinity for penguins so when I saw this stamp at Paper Source I had to pick it up. Plus, the little baby penguin is too cute! I’ve been waiting to post these little guys because some of my friends/readers had them coming to them. I’m hoping the US Postal Service came through and that they’ve all been delivered by now.
Like the Valentine’s Day cards I made last year (pictured below), these cards were made from a rubber stamp, acrylics paints, and a thin tip Sharpie. I think I’m going to try to make stamp/paint cards for all the major card giving holidays here on out. They’re so simple and I love crafting them!
