It’s time to welcome a brand new year!
I am so excited to be joining some of my friends in a New Year’s Blog Hop hosted by Jennifer at Celebrating Everyday Life! What a great way to get the new year off to a fun start!
New Years Eve Party Favors
And what better New Year’s Eve Party Favors than customized champagne flutes that your guests can take home with them after the party?? Oh, my goodness, this fun craft was so easy and quick, you literally could do it New Year’s Eve afternoon and have several ready for your party that evening! Plus, each one is unique!!
For this project you will need:
- champagne flutes (I found them both at WalMart and the dollar store for about $1 each)
- painter’s tape
- stickers of various shapes
- glass etching cream
- small brush or sponge applicator
First, I made sure my flutes were clean and dry. Then I wanted to create a band that would be etched, so I made a border around the top of the glass with my tape, being certain to line it up straight all around, and pressing down firmly to be sure the tape would block the etching cream.
I did this again at the bottom of the area I wanted to etch. Then I stuck some stickers on. I got the small circles at the office supply store; the stars and larger circles I already had. You could even use number stickers for the year that’s being celebrated. Or personalize with names and use at place settings. The possibilities are endless!!
I applied the cream thickly, according to the product directions, with my brush.
After waiting the prescribed time, I rinsed in warm water and voila!! Now I have this cute and dressy champagne flute for toasting the new year!
Hubs and I enjoyed some sparkling cider after I shot these photos! Yep – a bit early, but it still felt festive!
