Hi Friends! I’m so excited about this project! I love Fall and all the holidays and also wine so I thought I’d put the two together for this fun project. This is actually a pretty easy DIY craft and if you want to learn how to make glitter wine glasses read on! I have a ton of pictures, so stay with me!
The materials you’ll need:
- Mod Podge
- Triple Thick Gloss Glaze
- Glitter – Neon Orange
- Glitter – Black
- Wine Glass – I got mine at the Dollar Tree
- Paint brush and foam brush
- Vinyl Decal – I cut mine out using my Cricut Explore One Cutting Machine. I love my Cricut machine! You can find my ultimate resource guide of Cricut Ideas here!
- Let’s get started!
Clean off your wine glass and add a layer of Mod Podge with a foam brush. Just brush it on. Try to make an even line up at the top of the stem.
For the glitter, I put a bunch of the neon orange glitter and just a little black glitter in a container and mixed it up. Make sure you have a plate or container under the glass and start pouring the glitter onto the mod podge. Rotate the glass around while you are pouring so it covers the whole stem that’s painted. Tap the glass to shake off the extra glitter.
The stem should like this after the first coat –
Then dump all the glitter on the plate back in your container so you can use it for the next layer.
Let the glass dry for two hours. Then take a clean dry paint brush and go over all the glitter as if you were painting it. This takes off all the extra glitter that didn’t stick on the first layer. If you don’t do this step, you’re foam brush with the next layer of mod podge will get very glittery. If you like the look, you can skip the next step and go directly to adding Triple Thick.
Then add another layer of Mod Podge over the glitter and repeat the same step of pouring the glitter on the mod podge.
Let it dry another two hours and then use the paint brush and gently remove the extra glitter again. Then use a paint brush and paint on a layer of Triple Thick and let dry for another few hours. After two coats it will look like this!
Applying Vinyl to Wine Glass
Now that you know how to make glitter wine glasses, let’s move on to the vinyl lettering. You can do all this while the glass is drying. I found a couple free svg Halloween files online and I designed a few in Cricut Design Space™. After I cut them out and weeded them, my mat looked like this –
I cut them all apart and line them up on my mat while I’m looking at the screen so I can center them how they were on the screen. Then it’s easy to lay the Transfer Paper on top of the whole decal.
Then apply the vinyl to the glass. Clean the glass with rubbing alcohol and let dry. Line up decal on glass and put blue painter’s tape down the middle.
Pull up transfer paper on one half, cut the paper underneath, and attach the decal.
Then take off blue tape and rest of paper backing off to apply rest of decal. I cut the edges of the transfer paper when I’m applying to rounded surfaces so it will lay down smoother.

That’s how to make glitter wine glasses! Let glasses cure for a few days before getting wet so vinyl really attaches. Always make sure to only hand wash anything vinyl is attached to.
Here are the four I made! Love how they came out!
Another fun way to personalize wine glasses is with glass etching! It’s easier than you think! Check out my DIY glass etching tutorial here.
Can you think of any other sayings to put on Halloween wine glasses?? My next project is mugs! I’ll let you know what I find!
