“She’s crafty, she gets around….She’s crafty, all over town!” Not me exactly, but I would say that I can be crafty (and thrifty) every now and then. As for being all over town, I can say that is partly true, because I have been all over town hitting up every Dollar Tree for their pretty green glassware. After that I get around to Hobby Lobby to pick up some FolkArt Enamels Glitter Paint for Glass and about $12 later I am all set to create 6 – inexpensive, festive, handpainted Christmas glasses for gifts or parties. And in those pretty flutes, I will gladly sip on a Pomegranate Bellini!!!
FolkArt Enamels Glitter Paint for Glass can be found at most craft stores and is easy to use. Simply paint your design on the glass, place in the oven and heat up to 350 degrees. Let bake 30 minutes and then cool off in the oven and they are ready to use. I would recommend handwashing your painted glasses, but they can be placed on the top rack of your dishwasher.
The possibilities are endless with this inexpensive paint, but sadly it isn’t safe for food consumption, so think again about handpainted dishware. Believe me I was ready to paint every plate in my house.
