Terrie O demonstrates how to upcycle old glasses in this video tutorial. This is a great upcycling idea for lots of mismatched glasses, you can turn them into a set by applying a similar surface decoration / pattern to them.
I don’t know about you but glasses are frequently broken in my house and we always end up with lots of mismatched glasses, I now know how to solve that problem without buying a whole new set! I might add some glitter too…
Remember to give the glasses plenty of time to dry before using them, and thereafter ensure that you just do a gentle hand wash only. The glass paint and beads are NOT dishwasher safe.
The materials and equipment that you will need to upcycle your glasses are shown below.
- Glass paint liner (outliner)
- Selection of beads / sparkles
- Glass surface cleaner
- Container (large enough to hold your glass whilst you scatter the beads on top)
Send us a picture of your upcycled creations and we’ll showcase it for you.
