DIY Metallic Print Glassware | Sarah Hearts

A couple weeks ago I spotted these gold metallic printed glasses at West Elm. I loved the simple, geometric designs but didn’t love the $34 price tag. So I picked up a set of four old fashioned glasses at TJ Maxx for $8 and made my own metallic glassware using my Silhouette and some gold adhesive vinyl I had on hand.

I created the geometric designs in Illustrator then converted them to Silhouette cutouts. I followed the same process for creating and adhering the decals as I did for my St. Patrick’s Day glassware. I also created my own, retro inspired designs on some old fashioned glasses I also picked up at TJ Maxx (similar).

You can download both the West Elm inspired Silhouette designs and the mod geometric Silhouette designs I’ve created and make your own luxe, retro inspired barware.

I recommend hand washing the glasses before you apply the gold vinyl and hand washing them after each use. I also found it easier to apply the decals by placing the center of the decal on the glass and rotating the glass as you smooth out the vinyl.

Love these glasses! Can we have a ‘how to silhouette’ party? I’ve had one in my closet for 2 years, used it once & wasn’t really happy with with.

I love the retro-printed ones the most! And since I’m not into printed glasses, I feel like I’ll be using this for something else :) Thanks for the download by the way!

Thank you for these they look wonderful! I actually have a completely different project in mind, but your files where just what I needed. I still might try vinyl, but have never used yet. Think you just might have inspired me with these glasses
