For me what makes a wedding really special is the personal touches. I notice the little details, maybe that's why plastic cups really bother me. Indian families go to so much trouble to pick the best venue and food they can budget for, but often pinch pennies when it comes to serving ware and food presentation. Why not wow the guests at your by serving mango mimosas in glittered champagne flutes? 


You might not be able to do these for the entire crowd at your reception, but at $1 a piece from Ikea these champagne flutes are a definite possibility for a bridal shower or post wedding brunch. 

Supplies:

Champagne flutes
Decoupage glue (I love Mod Poge brand)
Craft glue (Martha Stewart is my fav)
Rubbing alcohol and cotton ball
Foam brush
Stencil or paint tape

Instructions:

DIY Glitter Champagne Flutes

Clean the champagne flutes with rubbing alcohol and let dry. Use stencil tape to mark off how high you want the glitter to go. (Remember, you want to keep enough space at the top of the glass for your guests to sip from).

DIY Glitter Champagne Flutes

Using a foam brush, cover the area you want to have glitter on it with decoupage glue. Try to use thin even strokes so your glitter goes on smooth not lumpy. Do not use a paint brush to apply the glitter or you could end up with streak marks that show through the glitter.

Carefully cover the entire decoupaged area with your choice of glitter. Be sure to put a piece of paper under the champagne flute as you work with the glitter so you can pick up any extra and pour it back into the container. 

After applying a coat of glitter, take off your stencil tape and then let it dry for 2 hours. Check to see if there are any spots you missed, add some more decoupage glue and sprinkle with glitter.

Once you are happy with coverage of your glitter apply two coats of decoupage glue (with drying time in between) to seal the glasses.

Remember - depending on the decoupage glue you use they glasses might be top rack dishwasher safe or hand wash only. Read the back of the glue you buy for specifics.
