My favorite holiday, Christmas is quickly approaching and I am getting ready.  Here is the color pallet I am working from for some quick and easy gifts:


Here is what I created for $2!


I made a trip to the Dollar Store and purchased mini martini glasses for $1/each!  I turned them into a quick holiday gift very easily:


Here are the products I used:  


Step by step Instructions:

  1. Clean glasses completely
  2. Use thin painter’s tape to mask off and make fun dimensional lines.
  3. use a cosmetic sponge to dab on paint for best results and do not over work the paint.
  4. Mask stem and use DecoArt Gloss Enamels Glass Chalkboard Paint on base of martini glass.
  5. Bake the piece to cure the paint.  Place on cookie sheet and put into cold oven.  Heat oven to the appropriate temperature per directions.  Bake for 30 minutes, turn off oven and leave glasses to cool.

Condition chalkboard paint area by rubbing chalk over entire dried, painted surface then wipe away for smoothing chalk writing.

What I love about these is I can personalize each one of these by writing the names on the stems and they only cost $1!  The Glitter Gloss Enamels makes them sparkle in the evening light.  Fill them with candy and some ribbon and you are done!  Enjoy your craft preparation for the holidays!  

Holiday Cheers!
