Happy Tuesday, Friends! These polka dot glasses check all the boxes as far as what I look for in a great craft-it’s easy, inexpensive, and so very versatile! These are great for holiday and hostess gifts this time of year, but the technique is also perfect year-round for wedding and housewarming gifts.

I chose red, green and turquoise, but you can easily change up the colors to match any decor scheme.

Step 1: Gather your materials. I used stemless wine glasses from Target, but any kind of glassware will do! I found the paints at Hobby Lobby, and chose paint that specifically said they could be used on glass. Be sure to read the curing instructions, though.

These paints require a 21 day cure time or they can be baked in the oven to speed up the process. Take your first color, and dab dots onto your glass. I decided to go only halfway up the glass, starting from the bottom…

Step 2: Once you’re done with one color, wash out your brush, and continue with the rest of your colors. Let dry.

And that’s it! Couldn’t. Be. Easier.
