DIY: mini yarn pom-poms

IMG_2352I’ve been trying to get back on a regular schedule of making DIY tutorials and set a goal for myself, but this thing is HARD yo! School always takes priority for me so I find that the times I am most unproductive on my website are often the times I’m most stressed at school. I’ll try to do better y’all – I know how much you guys love the DIYs.

Gold Confetti Champagne Glasses

I once told someone that gold was my favorite color and they responded that gold is a finish and not a color, apparently. Long story short, gold is still my favorite color. I got bored with my regular champagne glasses and decided to jazz them up a bit – and what better way to do this but to add some gold.

This is a really really easy and budget-smart DIY! You only need one other supply apart from your glasses and this cost me $2.99 at Michael’s (there’s a 20% of sale going on this week!). Read on for the scoop.

What you need:

-Champagne glass(es)

-Metallic gold dimensional fabric paint

Steps:

1. Make sure your glasses are clean and dry, then dot the gold paint all over it. The best technique is to squeeze the bottle till a little bit comes out, then touch it to the glass and then lift it straight off. This will ensure your dots are nicely rounded and have a 3D effect.

side note: For an ombre effect I concentrated my dots at the bottom and thinned them out towards the rim of the glass. Feel free to try other designs though!

2. Let stand for about 1 hour to dry completely.

I was so excited with how these turned out guys! You can throw them in a dishwasher or hand wash these still as long as you’re not scrubbing. BRB gonna enjoy my new bubbly glasses!
