I was cruising around Pinterest the other day and stumbled across a great project that I knew I had to try!
We do a bunch of entertaining and so this would really be great for keeping everyone’s wine glasses straight. I used to have some of those little charms but they always get lost or broken. This seems like a perfect alternative as we always have chalk around.
First, I grabbed one of the wine glasses from our caterer’s box set.
I wrapped some painters tape around the stem just to make sure the chalkboard paint didn’t go up any higher than I wanted.
I poured my chalkboard paint into a little plastic container and got ready to dip.
Because my wine glasses are not completely flat on the bottom, there was a lot of extra paint but I just kept tilting it a little bit to let the extra paint run off. Once it was dry, I primed it by rubbing chalk over it and then rubbing it off.
Finally, I was ready to write on it so I grabbed my piece of chalk and wrote my initials.
I will be ordering chalk ink markers to make it easier to write but this definitely worked. Now, only 17 more to go.
