Star Drinking Glasses

Another patriotic project for the month of July...


Starred Drinking Glasses!

(I didn't come up with this one on my own - I found it on Martha Stewart a few years ago. Here's her picture.)


You'll need a set of plain drinking glasses to start.  I spent less than $10 on a brand new set from Wal Mart that included 6 tall glasses and 6 short ones.

Draw a star on a sheet of paper. Mine was about 3.5 inches square.  Fit the paper inside the glass so you can see the star through the glass.
 

Using red, white and blue paint pens fill in the space of the star with small dots.

Let the paint dry for 24 hours, then bake the glasses in a 325 degree oven for 40 minutes.  This will set the paint so the glasses can be washed :)

Martha says they are dishwasher safe now, but I intend to wash mine by hand.


So cute! Wouldn't these be adorable at an Independence Day Barbecue?
