Glitter is as useful for adults as it is for children. You can customize wine glasses into a set of glitzy barware for a present, bachelorette party, Oscar party or other fancy occasion. After you have designed your glasses, make sure to seal them thoroughly, so that the glitter stays on the glasses and not in your dishwasher

Use glitter on the stems, leaving the upper glass portion bare.
Write a name or initials onto the side of the glass and cover it in glitter. You may want to find a flexible stencil if you want to use this design, but you don’t trust your freehand calligraphy.
Make glitter stripes around the bowl of the glass or the stem. You will stripe the glass with painter’s tape to create even stripes.
Glitter around the base of the stem for a more subtle glitter glass.
Use glitter on almost the entire glass, leaving a stripe on the top for easy sipping. You may need to buy more glitter to complete this design.

Step 7: Step 3
Try not to apply too much glue. You want the glitter to stick, but you don’t want the glue to drip.
Step 8: Step 4
Shake the tube of glitter onto the glue covered area. Use a lot of glitter, but beware that you should apply it over the cardstock at all times. Turn the glass as you shake out the glitter to get around the curves of the glass.
Step 9: Step 5
Don’t apply painter’s tape directly on the glitter section. It has not yet cured.
If there are any holes in your previous coat, simply apply more Mod Podge and more glitter. You can apply a second coat to the entire section if it is spotty.

Leave the tape and butcher paper on the glasses. However, peel back the very bottom of the tape, where it connects with the glitter, so that you can seal the edge.

Wait until it has dried. Then, apply a second clear coat. Review the package directions to find out how long you will need to wait between coats
Step 16: Step 12
Use your glasses after the lacquer has cured. You should be able to wash them in the dishwasher, thanks to the lacquer coats. However, they will respond even better to hand washing.
