The following pin was submitted to us by Beverly in North Carolina. Thanks!
The original pin – chalkboard paint on the base of a wine glass so that guests can personalize their glasses:
I thought this seemed like a pretty simple craft – just dip the wine glasses in the chalkboard paint and let them dry. Easy, right? Well, it was, but the hard part was drying the glasses. You can’t set them upright, but you can’t rest them upside down, because the paint runs down the stem and onto the glass.
Luckily, I remembered a souvenir I had from a wine festival – a necklace that holds a wine glass around your neck. I attached this to a shelf to hold the glasses as they dried:
However, the paint still didn’t have that seamless, smooth effect as the original pin. The end result was a tad bit bumpier:
Oh, well. You can still drink out of the glasses, so that’s probably all that really matters!
