How To Make Boring Drink Ware into Patriotic Glasses For Summer

Hi!  I am sharing today as part of the Craft Lightning Patriotic!  I am excited I am able to participate in this blog hop.  It includes a lot of bloggers making “lightning crafts”.  These are crafts that can be made in 15 minutes or less (excluding drying time).  I used some dollar store mason jar glasses and jazzed them up for a 4th of July celebration.  Now they are the perfect patriotic glasses.

I created some fun  patriotic decor last year for the office so I was excited to make more this year.

Patriotic Glasses

Supplies Needed:  I am including some affiliate links for your convenience.  You can read my full disclosure here.

Mason Jar Glasses

Oil Based Sharpie Markers – Red, White, Blue, Silver  (my photo shows a black pen instead of a silver one but I changed my mind)

Oven

Rubbing Alcohol ( just in case you make a mistake)

Let’s Get Started

I wanted a hand-drawn look for these glasses so I chose to just draw my stars onto the glasses free hand.  If you don’t like this idea you can make a stencil or use a pre-made stencil with stars on it.  And if you hate what you drew or you make a mistake some rubbing alcohol and some paper towel or a q-tip will remove the marker and you can start over.

This is so easy.  All I did was draw a 5 point star with the marker then color it in.

I had four glasses and I mixed up the colors a little bit.  On each glass I used two colors for the stars and then two colors for small dots as a filler.

Glass one – red and white stars with silver and blue dots

two – red and blue stars with white and silver dots

three – blue and white stars with red and silver dots

four – silver and red stars with blue and white dots

When they are done place them on a cookie sheet into a cold oven.  Turn the oven on to 250 degrees and let the glasses “bake” for 2 hours.  Then turn the oven off, keeping the glasses inside until the oven is cool.

This should make them safe for washing in the dishwasher but I would really recommend hand washing.

The Final Result

They are so festive and it is fun to have patriotic glasses for my 4th of July celebration.

      Thanks. They really are so easy to use. I love them a lot. I recently used them to make two retirement mugs for a co-worker. It was nice to be able to personalize them.
