Spring has sprung... Here's a simple DIY for bringing the spring vibes into your home decor. All you need is some thrifted wine glasses of all shapes and sizes to create these spring-inspired tulips.
- wine glass
- enamel paint
- sponge brush
- silver Sharpie
- Mod Podge (optional)
Visit your local Salvation Army Thrift Store for a variety of wine glasses. I chose a few in varying shapes and sizes. Once home be sure to wash the glasses and wait for them to dry.
Next you'll need to pick up paint from your local craft store. I used enamel paint since it's oil based and more resilient to wear and tear than acrylic paint.
Pour your paint onto a dish or lid then use a sponge brush to create the tulip design on the top of the wine glass. I picked a bright pink for the tulip.
Once you've painted the top of the wine glass, you can now paint the stem green then allow to dry.
Once dry I then used a white paint to give the tulip design a bit of depth.
Once the paint is dry I then used a silver Sharpie to add more definition to the tulip. Feel free to use any colour of Sharpie you prefer or leave your design as is.
This step is optional. You can seal the paint with a coat of Mod Podge.
Feel free to experiment with the materials or add your own flair for this DIY.
Note: the wine glass is for decorative purposes. I wouldn't recommend drinking out of the glass. If you need to clean the glass I would hand wash it and not place it in a dishwasher.
