Saw It, Pinned It, Did It- #13

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, FRIENDS!!
Hope you guys have a fabulous holiday. As for me, I will be spending the holiday by myself . The good news is, I will be heading to see Aaron on Friday and will be staying until Monday!!! I've got a lot to do today on my day off to get prepared for my weekend. I'm taking another huge load of junk to our future house. We've got a lot of fun things planned for the weekend including unpacking boxes, decorating the house, meeting his new friends and going on a double date, and finding a church to call home :) I am super excited!
 
Anywho, let's link-up for SPD with Stephanie & Katie.
 
Here is my Pinspiration:

And here is my version:
 
 
 
I was a little bit skeptical about whether or not this would work once I tried to wash the glasses, but I'm happy to say that it did. I used mint green acrylic paint for half of the dots and the other gold dots were done with my gold leafing paint pen. After I painted all the dots then I let them dry for an hour. Next, put them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. After they have cooked, leave them in the oven to cool for an hour. I let them sit out for 24 hours before I touched them to make sure they were good and done. When you wash them, make sure you use a soft rag and dish soap. Don't scrub away at them and don't put them in the dishwasher. I washed mine pretty hard with a rag and they were just fine. I LOVE them!! They were super easy and cheap. I bought a box of 4 stemless wine glasses at Ross for $6 and the other supplies I had on hand. I will definitely be making more of these :)
 
Hope you're day is filled with lots of LOVE!
