On Wednesday's, we Pinterest. Introducing Pinterest Projects: our weekly obsessions that you can do within your dorm room! I'm your resident Pinterest lover, and I'll give you step-by-step guides to make the best creations. Check out my posts every Wednesday! First up: let's chat about wine!
Get your craft on Bulldogs! This week, I have found some fun wine-themed crafts that can help make life a little more classy and a lot more fun.
Glittered Wine Glasses:
You'll Need: wine glasses, modge podge, glitter, lacquer
- Modge Podge the area to be glittered. It can be the base, the stem -- or the entire thing! You could even do a paw print in the middle. Spread an even coat over the entire area; it helps to apply with a sponge brush. If you're not great with free-handing, feel free to tape off the borders for clean lines.
- Glitter the modge podge evenly. Make sure to shake off the flitter sitting on top. Put something under your glass to catch the excess glitter so you can reuse it.
- WAIT!!! The modge podge has to dry. Really, reallllllly dry.
- Spray 2-3 coats of lacquer over the glittered areas. This will make the glass hand-washable and stop the glitter from falling off.
Wine Cork Letters:
You'll Need: wine corks, hot glue gun, wooden letter cutout (optional), ribbon (optional)
- Arrange corks in the letter shape you want. You can freestyle this or use a wood cutout to help guide you. You can also use the corks standing so the circle ends are showing or laying down so the cylinder sides are facing up.
- Hot Glue the corks in place either to each other or to the wood cutout.
- Hang the letter by hot gluing a ribbon loop to the back or just prop it up on a shelf!
Wine Cork Coasters:
You'll Need: wine corks, hot glue gun, ribbon (optional), small picture frame (optional)
- Cut & Arrange corks so they can fit into a square/rectangle -- whatever shape/size you want your coaster to be!
- Hot Glue them together.
- Frame them by either hot gluing ribbon around the sides or gluing them into a small picture frame. If you want to put them in a picture frame, you may want to cut them in half so they lay lower and don't pop out of the frame as much.
