Chalkboard Wine Glasses

I have found a new crafty obsession...chalkboard paint. There are so many fun chalkboard ideas on Pinterest and the in blog world, I knew I had to find some and play with it. There are two kinds that I found. One is actual chalkboard paint. It comes in every color, including black. The other is chalkboard spray paint. I found mine at Joann's, they also have it at Home Depot and Michael's. The spray paint gives a nice even smooth finish and I knew I wanted to use it to make these...Chalkboard wine glasses.

  
I masked off the area I wanted to paint with masking tape. I then covered the entire glass with newspaper. Then I followed the instructions on the can and sprayed! I would have a tutorial if I had thought of it before I actually started spraying. But I was too anxious to try it out. I now want to turn every surface in my house into a chalkboard.

These were a gift for a wine loving friend. I also made her some chalkboard coasters which I will be posting a tutorial for soon. I see lots of homeade holiday gifts in my future!!

Happy Tuesday!!!

I have never used chalkboard paint, but I have heard of it. It looks like so much fun!
Here's a funny story... my kids didn't even know what a chalkboard was! They grew up with whiteboards at school!
