Step 1: Gathering Supplies
Next, you will need to purchase Rust-Oleum brand ChalkBoard paint. I found plain black at Home Depot for $9.98. For $12.98 you can also purchase tintable chalkboard paint and choose from about 9-12 different colors. You may also want to pick up some sponge brushes for applying the paint at a cost of $.60 each at Walmart.
Finally, you will need chalk, which you can find at Walmart for $.97 for 12 sticks.
Step 2: Prepare Your Work Space
Be sure to layer the newspaper so the paint won't bleed through.
Make sure you have something to open the paint with and something to pour the paint into if necessary.
Step 3: Get Ready to Paint
You have a choice to dip the stem of your wine glass in the paint or to paint the stem with a sponge brush. If you dip the stem, be sure to rest the glass on its side after so it doesn't stick to the newspaper while drying.
You get to decide how far up the stem to paint. It is possible that you may need to allow the first coat of paint to dry and reapply a second coat.
Please watch the following video to see specifics about completing the project:
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Allow your stemware to dry over night in a safe place. Place a couple of pieces of chalk in the glass and decorate with tissue and ribbon for an added flare.
Be sure to let the recipient know to hand wash the stemware, not to put them in the dishwasher.
This is a great gift for many different occasions! Be creative! I am sure you can come up with many ways to use this simple project!
