Wine Glass Painting Ideas

You must have never thought of this before? Well, now you can try it. Take out the old wine glasses that aren't used anymore. Hand painted wine glasses look simply gorgeous. Either use the same design, or think of different designs for each glass.
Since the circumference is not really big, go in for small designs. Choose from any of the following,
  • A Pattern of Circles
  • Ladybird Bugs
  • A Pattern using Curves
  • Tiny Flowers
  • Stars
  • Bows and/or Hearts
  • Tiny Butterflies
  • Small Birds
  • Mushrooms
  • Strawberries
  • Faces Showing Different Emotions
  • Peacocks
  • Plums and Peaches
  • Candy and Chocolate
  • Apples (red and green)
  • Lemons and Chillies
  • A Bonfire (paint only the bottom of the glass, to give it the flaming effect)
  • Balloons
  • A Bunch of Grapes
  • An Alphabet (or all alphabets)
  • Gift Boxes
  • Small UFOs
  • Ribbons
  • Jellyfish
  • Polka Dots
  • Olives
  • Kisses
  • Sun Glasses
  • Dice
  • Chess Pawns
Paint these on the glasses. Just try not to use a color that will clash with that of the wine. Your wine glasses will have a lovely makeover. Instead of wine glasses, you can try a similar experiment on martini glasses too!
