I love these kinds of projects and they are so fun to give as gifts. Today I am going to show you some awesome glass paint markers from DecoArt and how to use them to create a fun, unique gift.
Making Your Own Mugs & Glasses With Glass Paint Markers
These really are the perfect small gifts to give to the people in your lives such as teachers, hair stylists, friends, etc. And they match my T-shirt design too. Cute right? Be sure to check out all of my t-shirt designs.
Back to the wine glass! If you have not used these glass paint markers from DecoArt yet they are amazing. The folks at DecoArt sent me these markers in exchange for my post. But all of my opinions are my own.
So, these guys can be used on glass, tile, glazed ceramics, and metal. Once they are baked they are dishwasher safe. The only thing is they are not food safe so you don’t want to put your design too high on the cup. Make sure it is below the “lip line”.
They are available in 12 colors plus there is a silver and a gold.

Materials List for Projects With Glass Paint Markers
Wine Glass, Mug – I got mine at the Dollar Tree
Contents to add for a gift
- I used a small wine bottle, chocolate kisses
Ribbon – I love raffia for these type of gifts
Marker or Stamp for tag
The first thing is to prep your glass, mug, vase or whatever you are working on. I washed my glass then wiped it down with alcohol or glass cleaner.
I like to have an idea of what I am going to put on the glass but you can make it up as you go if you want.
For me it helps to create my design or write out the words using word, or google docs or photoshop elements or to just look a picture you like. This give me an idea of spacing, etc.
Get the marker started by pushing the tip down onto a cardboard or paper towel until you see the ink pull into the tip. Then you are ready to work.
If you don’t get it right, or you just hate the design use rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball or q-tip right away to remove the ink and then start again!
You need to wait 8 hours after you have finished drawing the design before you bake it.
Don’t pre-heat the oven. Places your glassware onto a baking sheet and place it in the oven. Set it for 375 degrees and let it go for 40 minutes. Then leave them in the oven, turn the oven off and leave them until cool.
Now you can add the goodies to your gift package!
The top of these stemless glasses are a smaller than the middle so I placed the wine bottle into the bag and placed it into the glass. Then I added the chocolate kisses.
Tie it all up with a pretty piece of raffia and add a tag.
Making A Tag
I found some scrapbook paper that matched my colors and cut a 2 x 3″ piece. Then I rounded the top two corners and punched a hole in the center at the top.
I like to edge my paper with black ink to give it a little pizzaz!
Then I wrote “enjoy” but you could stamp it or print on the paper before you cut it or add a sticker. Whatever you like!
There you have it! What do you think? Pretty fast and easy. Even the baking doesn’t take too long. I love project like that.
If you like it be sure to pin it!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
