Adventures in Pinterest: Girls Weekend Favors

It's been way too long since I've shown off a little craftiness here on the old blog.  The sad part?  It's not because I haven't been crafty (I've got the glittered garage floor to prove it), but because I've been lazy in that I don't take photos of a damn thing before I hang it, wrap it, give it away, etc

Luckily, I wanted to remember these favors I made for my lovely ladies for our Girls' Weekend in Solvang.

I was inspired by the one and only Kristen from All in My Twenties.  She made some super darling wine glasses for a river trip she took last summer, and I had to put my own little spin on them and create them for my gal pals. 

My Pinspiration:

 
My Creation:
 



I took Kristen's advice and headed to Target for these $3 plastic wine glasses - love that they are extra large, and plastic (being that we managed to break two wine glasses on our wine tour...it's a good thing we had plastic at the hotel).

As you can see, I made a few minor changes for my version.  I love the look of wine in a glass (that's not the most alcoholic-like thing I've said this week, if you can believe it), so I kept the paint down at the bottom only. 

To create that look, I used painters tape to tape a crisp line at the top of the stem of the wine glass, and then covered the top part of the glass with newspaper (well, coupons to be fair, as we don't get a newspaper as Casa de Stress Case).  I used a silver spraypaint that I already had in my arsenal (because I spray painted a bottle of Grey Goose silver recently.  I'm a baller.).

After painting my little beauts, I applied two rows of rhinestones - I used two different sizes for some dimension.  Then I simply added on "Solvang '13" with a Sharpie paint pen.

Easy Peasy!
