Painted Wine Glass

One of my close friends has been encouraging me to do a painted wine glass project. When I discovered a display of Martha Stewart Crafts Glass paint at the craft store, I decided that was the sign that I should finally give glass painting a try.

Not only is this a fun project, the result is definitely gift-worthy. You could easily create personalized glasses to commemorate a wedding, bridal shower, birthday, anniversary or just to say that you would like a glass of red wine.


  • wine glass
  • rubbing alcohol
  • cotton balls
  • Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint
  • stencil
  • rubber scraper
  • toothpicks and cotton swabs for clean up
  • permanent marker (optional)


Start with a clean wine glass.

Apply a bit of rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball and rub it over the area of the glass you will be painting.

Next, you will be applying your stencil. I created my own using Grafix Cling Vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo, but there are a variety of stencils available in the paint section of your local craft store. (In case you are curious, the phrase I used is the only thing I know in French. It means "I would like a glass of red wine.")

I found it helpful to mark the middle of the stencil with a permanent marker.

Peel the stencil from the backing paper and apply it to the glass. Since the glass is curved, it is easiest to start at the middle of the stencil and work towards the sides. Make sure that your stencil is completely smooth and all of the bubbles are pressed out.

Drawing the line down the middle of the stencil helped me align my three rows of text.

Now you are ready to paint.

Since I only have two hands and was taking pictures with one hand as I worked with the other, I cushioned my glass in a piece of fabric so I could lay it on the table.

Apply paint to the glass.

Use the edge of a rubber scraper to smooth the paint into the stencil and remove any excess paint.

Make sure the paint is distributed evenly in each space of the stencil.

Fill in your entire design in the same way.

Before the paint dries, carefully peel off the stencil.
Don't panic if a little paint escapes the stencil.

You can use cotton swabs to wipe off any large areas of unwanted paint. Toothpicks work great to scrape off the paint in smaller areas or to clean up the details around painted edges.

Let the paint dry for at least an hour.

The complete instructions for curing the glass paint are available on the Plaid website, but I'll summarize.

Place your glass in a cool oven. Set the temperature to 350 F. Once the temperature reaches 350, bake the glass for 30 minutes. Turn off the oven after 30 minutes and let the glass cool completely in the oven before removing it.

Plaid recommends that you wait 72 hours before using your glass.

After that, even a trip through the dishwasher shouldn't remove your design from the glass.

Now you can enjoy that glass of red wine you have been so eagerly awaiting.
