Materials Needed

wine glasses
colored chalkboard paint (have it mixed at your local hardware or paint store)
deep container for the paint
chalk stick or chalk pen
rubbing alcohol
paper towels or a clean cloth

Prep Work

Remove any labels or stickers from the foot of each wine glass, then clean the area that will be covered with paint using a clean cloth dipped in rubbing alcohol. Pour chalkboard paint into a bucket or bowl deep enough that the glass bottom can be fully submerged.

Dip Glasses

Dip the base of the wine glass into the paint (Image 1). Lift glass out of the paint and hold over the bowl to allow excess paint to drip back into the container (Image 2). Set the glass on a protected surface to allow the paint to dry overnight (Image 3).

Personalize Glasses

Using the chalk, write your guests’ names on the dry, painted surface of each glass.
