Welcome to the February Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of this hop is to motivate us to not just hoard pins, but to make it happen! A big thank you to Erlene from My Pinterventures for organizing this cool challenge! For this month’s challenge I will show you how to make pretty wine glasses with alcohol ink. I also added in a few shot glasses for good measure!

Here is the pin that inspired me:
When I went to view the tutorial, I was thrilled to see the project was from Pam at P.S. I Love You Crafts. I am in a Craft Group with her and she knows her stuff! That made me even more excited to try out this project! Thanks Pam for the inspiration!
How To Make Pretty Wine Glasses With Alcohol Ink
Start by cleaning the glasses with rubbing alcohol. You can use as many alcohol ink colors as you want. I decided to just use a pretty eggplant and mango-otherwise known as purple and pink! There are just a couple of steps. Use a brush to add rubbing alcohol to the outside of the glass. Immediately add drops of alcohol ink and swirl it around. I also used a straw to blow the ink around so it would spread out around the entire glass. But this is completely optional.
Allow ink to dry then apply a coat of dishwasher-safe sealant. I used Mod Podge. I will definitely be trying this again on glass vases. I would do a few things differently. I would use several colors and also use lighter colors. I loved the pink, but it really doesn’t show as the purple takes over. I did add just pink to the stem of the wine glass and like it much better. All in all I am happy with them.
The wine glasses have a mercury glass look to them. I went a little lighter with the shot glasses and they have a really cool water color look.
