DIY Metallic Print Glassware
October 17, 2013
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).
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.
