DIY Champagne Flute
Out with the old and in with the new!

I have had these champagne flutes for well over 10 years that have set in a box in the garage for two years.  Prior to that, they sat in a box in a basement for four years.  Needless to say they are totally dated but I can’t bring myself to throw out perfectly good flutes, so I gave them an update.

You need:
Glass stemware
Painters tape
X-acto knife
Brushed metallic spray paint

Decide on the design you would like to incorporate, cut the length and width of the painters tape.

Apply the tape in the design you like, leaving excess tape in the mouth of the glass for easy tape removal.

Spray the glass outside or in a well ventilated space in a box to minimize the overspray. Insert a paper towel in the mouth of the glass which prevents paint getting in the mouth and provides a mess free method for you to pick the glass up once painted.  Allow the first coat to dry before applying a second coat.

Allow the glasses to dry completely before removing the tape.

Glasses should be hand washed only.
