Dollar tree has remarkable deals; some items you can use straight off the shelf others may need some additive to make it valuable, others may simply need a bit of jazzing up. On my last trip to dollar tree I found 8 champagne glasses. Perfect!! My current event is a Male birthday party filled with black and gold decorations. Because it’s a lounge style party there is only one table that needs over the top decorations.
Here is how I turned plain $1 glasses into eye-catching pieces.
Supplies Needed: Glasses, foam brush, gloss glue, glitter.
I used a broken plate to contain the glitter. I recommend that you also use a glitter catcher; you’ll thank me later.
Step 1. Wash and dry the glass
Step 2. Apply a generous amount of glue to the base. Do one glass at a time. Tip: use painters tape for a more uniformed finish.
Step 3. While the glue is still wet sprinkle the glitter onto the painted area.
Step 4. After covering the entire painted area, gently tap the excess off.
Step 5. Allow the glue to dry for several hours.
Step 6. Once dry lightly tap the loose glitter off. Tip if you need more coverage simply apply more glue and sprinkle on more glitter and allow to dry.
Final step: Apply a light layer of glue over the dried glitter and allow to dry.
The final picture shows what the glass looks like with final glue application and after.
