Friday Find: DIY

Bride to be glasses (backside view)

"BRIDE" margarita glass

Champagne Glass 

"ASHLI" wine glass

Two weeks in a row of DIY.... I know, who do I think I am?  This project is for the same bachelorette weekend as last week's tissue paper flower bouquets.  I wanted the bride (Ashli)  to have special glasses to drink out of during her weekend. And let me warn you... DIY's are a slippery slope. Once you conquer one, you think you are Martha Stewart. And now I have a "DIY" board on Pinterest filled with glass jar lights and picture frame projects (odds are I'll end up settling for a wine cork board, and then only collect the corks). Okay, back to the glasses!  PS, the term "blingy" below is the official term for the shiny diamond looking buttons you can buy at the craft store :)
_________________________________________

Step 1: Choose your glasses (I got all three from Home Goods).
Step 2: Create veil:  Cut a 6 inch piece of tulle (Michaels), gather one side to look like a veil and staple at the gathering. Next, super glue a blingy (Michaels) to hide the staple.
Step 3: Attach veil: Super glue a smaller blingy to the glass where you want to attach the veil, and then super glue your veil to the smaller blingy.
Step 4: For the "BRIDE" and "ASHLI" letters I used sparkly alphabet letters (Michaels).

Very cute! I don't have any weddings in the near future so I may adapt the idea with a bit of pink tulle for a special birthday which is coming up. =)

These are really pretty! And I agree with Jacqueline, you could even do this for a b-day party with pink or purple tulle! Anyways, great job and hope you ladies have a fun wknd.

Yes, Mint green is still on trend for Summer but for Fall...the colour is def burgandy and varying shades. But whatever, I love green in general so I'm going to wear it anyway.

What a fun DIY for your friend! And nice use of restraint too, because if I had free use of sticky rhinestones, those would become a trio of pimp cups, haha!
