How to Make Bridal Luncheon Wine Glasses

Recently, I hosted a bridal luncheon for my best friend's daughter's wedding with several other good friends!! It was a blast! I saw these adorable bridal luncheon wine glasses on Pinterest! And, HAD TO MAKE THEM for the shower! But, I couldn't find any really good instructions on how to make them. I thought you might appreciate having instructions on how I made them. And, since I'm the kind of crafter that tries to find the most efficient and easiest way to make things, I think you'll like how I did these! I had a good many to make...there were 10 bridesmaids, the bride, the flower girl, and the mother of the bride who were attending the shower. I had to make these quickly and the steps ended up being very easy! 

Gathering the tulle with my sewing machine was the key! 
Used a sewing machine to gather the tulle for bridal luncheon wine glasses. 
One set of instructions I found featured gathering the tulle by hand. It would have taken me weeks to gather all that tulle for 13 glasses!!! I ran a small loose seam close to the edge of the tulle. And, then pulled one thread in order to gather the tulle. If you sew, this is how you gather a ruffle, etc.

I purchased the wine glasses from the Dollar Tree. I used glass paints I purchased from Hobby Lobby.  Be sure to use alchol to clean the glasses. 

Clean the glasses with alcohol first. I painted three coats on each glass. I wanted the paint to be really thick and not transparent.

I turned the glass upside down, added hot glue to the base of the cup, used the extra string to tie the ruffled tulle around the glass and secured it with the glue.

We found these beautiful rhinestones with adhesive to finish off the glasses. These took some patience! But, well worth the time and effort!

The mother of the bride was wearing a gold dress to the wedding. I decided my best friend needed a special glass of her own!

I found a very nice plastic wine glass at the grocery store. I painted it with a modest design and decorated it like the bride's glass.

I hope you found these instructions helpful! 

Happy surfing, pinning, and creating!
