I wanted to continue our theme of easy DIY gifts and these DIY Monogrammed Wine Glasses are an absolutely easy gift to give for the holidays and require zero craft skills. You won’t believe how quick and easy these diy monogrammed wine glasses are to create and, if
you are anything like me your girlfriends are anything like mine, they will use this personalized wine glass every night (*ahem*).
The thing that really makes these glasses special are the glittered monogrammed stems. My daughter Emily would call this oh-la-la fancy or Frenchie fancy (we talk a lot about Fancy Nancy and Paris around here).
Martha Stewart Stencils (these are the ones I used for this)

How to Stencil Your Glassware
1. Clean your glasses with soap and water, then rub with rubbing alcohol to remove any remaining residue on the glass.
2. Apply the reusable adhesive larger stenciled letters for the monogram on the glass and then apply the smaller letters on the stems of your glasses.
3. Pour a small amount of gloss paint on a disposable plate and on another plate pour a small amount of glitter paint . Using your brush, apply a thin layer of gloss paint to your wine glass, doing your best to stay within the stencil. If needed, apply a second coat.
4. While your paint is still wet, carefully peel off stencil.
5. Using your glitter paint and an inexpensive foam brush, apply a thin layer of glitter paint on your wine stem. Travel the paint as high as you want it (the entire stem, just the base, or wherever feels like a good ending point for you).
6. While your glitter paint is still wet, carefully peel off your stencil.
7. Allow the paint to dry for one hour and then place the glasses on a cookie sheet. Set the glasses in a cool oven. Set oven to 350°F and bake for 30 minutes. Glass must heat gradually with the oven to avoid breakage. Do NOT place glass in a hot oven. After 30 minutes, turn the oven off. Allow glass to cool completely in oven. Wait 72 hours before using.
8. Clean all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after using them, before the paint has dried. You can use a stencil cleaner to clean. Let dry. Attach backing to stencils and then store for another use.
