I had so much fun planning for my best friend’s bachelorette party! I was able to make some wine glasses, shot glasses and some hangover kits for a fraction of the price that I would have paid if I had ordered them.
I was able to make the wine glasses for $2.56 each and the shot glasses for 78¢! And that includes the paint and paint brushes. I still have plenty of paint and the paint brushes, so if I do this again it would only be the cost of the wine glasses or shot glasses themselves.
I was able to get 12 wine glasses for $12.99 at Marshall’s:
The paint was only $1.79 each. I got gloss enamel paint that is safe for glass. Once I let it dry for 24 hours I was able to bake it in the oven on 300* for 20 minutes (put the glass in when the oven is cool, not preheated).
I ended up taking that pen back because it was dry and didn’t work. But it is supposed to be like a pain pen, but for glass! It would have been cool! First I had to clean each glass with rubbing alcohol.
This was a smaller one, I ended up making bigger letters. Then I painted! It took forever! I really thought this would be quick, but it took a while to get used to the paint and the brush. The paint was also really thin and I needed to do 3-4 layers just to get it as dark as I wanted.
I painted the bottoms pink so I had to dry them upside down. The shot glasses also got letters, and pink paint on the bottom.
Tomorrow I will go into detail about the hangover kits that I was able to make for $2.02 each.
This def took more time then I would have liked but it was a fun experience and a great way to make my friends party special without spending a lot of money.
How have you made a party special for less? I would love to hear!
