DIY: Silk Screen Glass Stencils with Martha Stewart Glass Paints

Hi friends, as a crafter, I'm sure you know one can never say no to Martha. So, when Plaid company wanted to send me a bunch of Martha Stewart Glass Paints and supplies from their new line, how could I say no?

In fact, how could I do anything but try them out and tell you all about them!

I decided to use the silk screen stencils they sent me and paint a delicate design on a champagne glass. My idea was that this would be perfect to do something like this for a wedding gift!

Here are the supplies that Plaid sent me:

And this is what my sad, unpainted champagne glass looked like before it was silk-screened:

Once I got the hang of it, the silk screens were easy to apply (and you can even wash and reuse them) that I was able to do all of this with the kids running around! I mean, I won't lie, there might have been a few unauthorized crayon drawings on the walls during my craft session, but hey, what's a magic eraser for anyway?

So the steps are here:

Apply the silk screen to the glass then paint onto the stencil using a small brush. Remove the stencil before the paint dries and wash and allow the stencil to completely dry for reuse.

Once finished, this is what my pretty little glass looked like:

Cute, isn't it?

I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Plaid Crafts and Blueprint Social, but the ideas and opinions in this post are all my own.

It's beautiful! You could do a whole set of these! (I have to ask though: are there ever "authorized" crayon drawings on the walls...? Because those I would LOVE to see!) ;)

Going to share this on my FB page!

I love the stencil you chose. I could see making 2 flutes like that and gifting them as a wedding gift with a bottle of the couple's favorite sparkling wine or champagne. You gave me a good idea to use on future friends ;)Really cute!

I had a lot of DIY at my wedding... but tried to keep it classy like these. I wish this had been around 6 years ago so that I could have incorporated this on our champagne glasses for toasting!
Thanks for a great project!
