I’ve got two cousins who are each planning weddings for this coming fall. My cousin Jessica and her groom are hosting a large wedding filled with all the traditional pomp and circumstance and a big reception. Her brother, Brad and his bride are planning a small private wedding and reception in their backyard for only their closest family and friends.

To celebrate their engagements, I wanted to come up with an easy, inexpensive yet personalized gift I could give them. I love making hand painted wine glasses and appetizer plates or DIY coffee mugs with gloss enamel paints. So I thought it would be really fun to make hand painted champagne flutes for each of the couples. I wanted them to be simple yet pretty enough that my cousins could use them as toasting glasses at their wedding receptions if they choose.

What You Need

Instructions

1. Prepare the champagne glasses 

Remove any stickers from the glassware. If there is sticky residue leftover, just use a little Goo Gone on a cotton ball or paper towel to remove it. Wash and dry the champagne flutes thoroughly so you have a clean surface for painting.

2. Decide what kind of design you want to paint on your champagne flutes 

For these engagement or bridal shower gifts, I wanted to keep them simple so I chose to just paint Mr. and Mrs. by freehand.

Then for the bases I painted the bride and groom’s first names and their wedding date or year.

If you’re not confident to paint the letters freehand for the wedding glasses like I did, you can type it up in a font you like on your computer. Print it on white paper. Then use painter’s tape to affix the word(s) to the inside of each champagne flute. Here’s an example showing how I did that with some hand painted wine glasses:

Or you could skip the lettering all together and just create a whimsical design using the bride and groom’s wedding colors similar to these fall hand painted wine glasses I made.

3. Paint the first layer on the champagne glasses

Pour a small amount of gloss enamel paint in your plastic palette. You can add small amounts of other enamel paint colors and mix them together to match the bride and groom’s wedding colors. For example, my cousin Jessica’s wedding is going to be navy blue and burgundy red. I used the “save the date” magnet she sent to match the paints to her colors.

Once my paints matched Jessica’s wedding colors, I carefully painted Mr. and Mrs. in navy blue on her wedding champagne flutes.

After that, I put her name and her fiance’s name on the base of the hand painted champagne flutes in burgundy cursive letters. I painted her wedding date in navy blue with burgundy hearts between the month, date and year.

4. Paint additional layers on the champagne flutes

Once the first layer of paint dries on the champagne glasses, you may find you need to paint 1-2 additional layers to get the coverage you want. Make sure you let each layer dry completely before painting the next layer. You can use a blow dryer to speed up the drying process.

5. Paint additional champagne flutes for other wedding gifts

Get as creative as you want with your toasting glasses! There’s no right or wrong answer here as long as you only use gloss enamel paints. You can even use metallic enamels like I did for the champagne flutes I painted for my cousin Brad’s wedding. I actually used a black enamel paint pen to put the year on this set.

6. Allow your hand painted champagne flutes to dry 

When you’re satisfied with your toasting glasses, let them air dry overnight or even a few days. You want the gloss enamel paint to be completely dry before you move on to the next step.

7. Cure the paint on the DIY toasting glasses 

The final step in the process is to cure or harden the enamel paint on the champagne glasses. There are two methods for doing this:

  • Method 1: Air Dry. Let the champagne flutes air dry for 21 days.
  • Method 2: Bake in th e Oven. Put the champagne flutes on a metal baking sheet. Place it on a low rack in the oven. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the glassware for 30 minutes. Turn the oven off and allow the champagne glasses to cool naturally with the oven before removing them. IMPORTANT: YOU MUST PUT THE HAND PAINTED CHAMPAGNE FLUTES IN THE OVEN BEFORE YOU TURN IT ON TO PREVENT THE GLASSES FROM BREAKING.

Once the paint has cured on the DIY toasting glasses, they are top-rack dishwasher safe if the champagne flutes you bought are dishwasher safe.
