Festive Holiday Stemware

It all started with money.....or better explained, money I refused to spend! Doesn't it always start that way??!!
I saw some glasses similar to this one....
...in Hobby Lobby and HomeGoods. I fell in love with theses glasses; they would be perfect for my dining table over the holidays. Sadly, I walked away and did not buy them. You see, I'm cheap when it comes to things I'm only going to use for a short period of time and these were too pricey for short-term use. So, after mulling it over and checking around on Pinterest for some ideas, I decided to make my own.
I found some cute gold-rimmed wine glasses at the Dollar Tree and found the perfect paint pen at Hobby Lobby. It didn't take long to create these adorable glasses that look so pretty on my dining table.
Too see more of the details and a few other photos, please be sure to visit my blog! I think you will be pleasantly surprised with this project. Now, the search is on to find other pieces to decorate with little gold polka-dots!

    Do you have to bake the glasses to keep the marker on there, or will it wash off the first time you clean the glasses?

      I hand washed them and the paint stayed on. I wouldn't put them in the dishwasher. Thanks so much!

    I have alot of wine glasses and I want to rummage some. Maybe if I dot them I'll sell them for more than ten cents. I have lots of sharpies. I could try other colors. Do you think I could use on drinking lip?

      Hmmmm, I really don't know. When I bought these at the dollar store, they already had the gold around the rim of the glass. I don't think the paint would be safe if some of it happened to chip off while drinking.
