DIY – Sea Glass Tumblers









diy sea glass tumblers

I love these frosted tumblers I spotted on the Vicky Barone blog.  I think this crafty DIY, turns ordinary glasses into frosted sea glass tumblers!  If you have a beach home or just want to get that beachy feel, this is the DIY for you  🙂

Materials: Glass tumblers, rubbing alcohol, painter’s tape, a foam pouncer, and Martha Stewart Craft’s Translucent Frost Glass Paint (we used Beach Glass!)

What to do:
1. Using rubbing alcohol and a paper towel or cotton ball, clean the tumblers and let dry.
2. Take the painter’s tape in manageable sections and tape off where you want your paint to go.
3. Use your finger nail or a credit card to press out all air bubbles and seal the tape onto the tumblers.
4. Dip the foam pouncer in the frost paint and begin painting the tumblers using an up and down motion (don’t worry if it doesn’t look perfect – a second coat will fix any mistakes!).
5. Let dry two hours before applying a second coat.
6. Let second coat dry overnight and then peel off the painter’s tape!
7. Follow the directions on Martha Stewart’s craft website for how to set the paint (We air cure for 21 days, but you can also oven bake them!).
