DIY Stencil Painted Glassware

March 19, 2015Sarah Khandjian

Learn how to create your own set of cute modern drinking glasses in this video tutorial.

If you’re not local or you were not able to attend last week’s Meet + Make, don’t worry, today I’m sharing exactly how we made the bright colored glassware. The custom glasses are really fun to make and great to give but I bet you may want to keep them for yourself!

The process for creating the painted glasses is pretty simple but a couple tools do make the job easier. One of which is a Silhouette cutting machine. No other tool gets used as much in my studio as my Silhouette! I find myself using it several times and week and here’s a yet another use. It’s perfect for creating stencils to place on glasses.

If you’ve been wanting a Silhouette for a while and would love to make your own glasses today is your day—I’m giving away a Silhouette Portrait!

Watch the video tutorial above to learn how to create your own set of painted glasses and continue to the end of the post to learn now to win your own Silhouette Portrait!

Time: 45 minutes + drying time
Supplies: glasses / glass paints / Silhouette Portrait or Cameo / stencil material / spatula / makeup wedges

Can't wait to try making these DIY stenciled glasses! They would be perfect as gifts and are so great for summer entertaining.

These bright and cheerful glasses were created using stencils cut with a Silhouette Cameo. Such a fun way to create personalized drinking glasses!

    I’m pregnant with a baby girl so I’d love to learn to make stuff for babies like accessories or decorations for her room.

    I don’t live in the area, but I love seeing your creative projects! I am a teacher, so perhaps a classroom resource for crafty teachers would be a fun Meet + Make? :)

    I would love to win the portrait! I’m a sahm of five kiddies and my husband was laid off. We’ve been wanting to buy the Silhouette but it’s been out of our budget. We were hoping to start a little home based business once we do get one. I love your site and the tutorials!!

    I’d love to do some sort of weaving, embroidery, or a summery project like potted succulents or herbs.

    I was thinking of using DIY stencils to etch some glass, but I might make painted glassware instead. You make it look so easy. Looking forward to exploring your blog.
