Over the weekend I had a great time at one of my best and oldest friend's bachelorette party. The bachelorette party was an all day wine tour out on the east end of Long Island. I was so excited to go because it had been a long time since I had been able to go to a winery carefree (not pregnant or nursing!) There were about 20 ladies that were a part of the festivities and we had a party bus for our transportation. The mother of the bride had the cute idea to have mini champagne bottles and individual orange juice bottles for the girls so we could enjoy mimosas on the drive out to the wineries. I volunteered to make the glasses that everyone could use for their beverages of choice.
After going over a few options, I decided to etch "MB's Bachelorette Wine Tour" on each glass. After playing around with my Silhouette I was able to get the sizing just right to fit on the wine glasses. I used contact paper from the dollar store and cut 20 of the stencils out.
Once all the stencils were cut I started the assembly line. I applied all the stencils to the glasses and starting etching. (I apologize I was so wrapped up in making the glasses I forgot to take pics along the way.) In batches of 3 or 4 I painted on the etching paint and left it on about 1 or 2 min a piece and washed all the etching paint off. After all the glasses were complete I applied some self adhesive rhinestones just to bling them out. Here was the brides finished product.
I did not go as rhinestone crazy with the rest of the girls. I just applied a few rhinestones to the glass not the stem. One thing I did not think of was condensation from the glass. The rhinestones slid around and some came off completely. Oh well.....They were a cute idea!
