Hello everyone and welcome to my 1st day of Christmas blog post!!  This is one of 12 fun projects I will be sharing with you in the next 12 days!

If you know me, you know I love sparkle and glitter so there is no surprise my first Christmas related project is to do with GLITTER!!!  I made this glitter project back in March and you can read full details on how to do this here

I made these beautiful glitter champagne glasses using some fine glitter and mod podge.. it is a little messy but it is so much fun.. and your options are really endless!!  I chose these Christmas colours to make lovely champagne flutes and a wine glass.

Simply put the tape around the glass, cover the area you wish to sparkle with mod podge and sprinkle the glitter on.  You will need to leave this to dry and the add another layer of mod podge to seal this.

If you want the glasses to sparkle even more repeat the same steps and add more glitter.

  1. These are gorgeous- how do you clean them? I don’t think you could run them through the dishwasher, but what about warm soap and water?

    1. Hi Terry, yes you can use warm soap water and clean them this way, just don’t rub the glitter too much. It is sealed so the glitter should not come off, you must leave the mod podge to cure for 28 days though. There is a dishwasher safe mod podge on the market, but I have not tried it myself. If you are covering candle holders or something you wont be putting food/drink in you can always seal it extra with some varnish (so don’t need to wait 28 days for mod podge to cure). Technically these glasses could be double protected with varnish too as the rim where the lips touch it would not be covered..
