DIY Personalized Wine Glasses


So, it’s the time of year where I’m torn between planning for Christmas or living in the moment and just enjoying Thansgiving (which is right around the corner!).  I want to be the person who’s already finished her Christmas shopping but really, I’m the person who’s thinking alot about it and will leave my ever-growing list of gifts for friends and family until the last minute, while I focus on thawing out the bird and whipping up some stuffing. Lucky for me, this project allows me to do both!

Personalized wine glasses make thoughtful gifts for your friends and family and a beautiful addition to your holiday table, but you don’t have to buy them. Here’s how to DIY monogrammed wine and drinking glasses on the cheap!

You’ll need:

1. Create your stencil, cut it, and transfer it to your glass, using the relief of the cutout. For further instructions on how to do this, you can check here.

2. Clean the glass with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any dirt or smudges.

3. Use your Sharpie pen to fill in the stencil.

4. Once done, put the glass on a baking sheet and put it in a cold oven. Then heat it to 350 degrees and keep it in there for 30 minutes. This will ensure the glass and paint are dish washer safe.

    That's great! I didn't know about heating it in the oven. You will be able to use those glasses for any occasion. Love them!

    Hi I LOVE these. Great gift ideas. Could you tell me the font you used? It's perfect. Also, which model silhouette do you use? And do you recommend only hand-washing these glasses? Thanks so much:)

      Hi Melissa! Thanks so much! All great questions – let me see if I can fill you in on answers.. I use a Silhouette Portrait, which I like very much, but I think if I were purchasing new I'd probably go with the Cameo because it can take larger cuts of materials (I didn't think of that when I bought mine!). I used the Algerian font in 144pt. And, although they are dishwasher safe – it's not going to wash off if they make it in the top rack by mistake – like anything else metallic, yes, I would likely hand wash them. Thanks so much for coming by!

    I have quite a few wine glasses not getting much use. I never thought of monogramming them, what a cool idea I'd love to try!
