These Grinch glasses are easy to make and perfect for your holiday get together.
Can you believe Christmas is less than 2 weeks away?! This year has flown by! Since I was pregnant most of the year I didn’t get to throw as many parties as I would have liked, I just didn’t have the energy, so I decided to make it up for Christmas and New Years! And as we all know during the holidays money can be tight, so I even though I wanted to throw an amazing party I didn’t want to spend a fortune doing it. All the decor was DIY (or left over from last year) and the food spread was simple too. My favorite being the Grinch Punch (recipe coming tomorrow) and these Grinch Glasses. They were SO easy to make!
When shopping for party supplies I love checking the seasonal sections at Walmart and Target. A lot of times you can find supplies that work all year long for just a few bucks. I found these plastic wine glasses at Walmart and they were only $1.97 for 8. I also picked up some Christmas Green craft paint and green glitter.
To make the cups you’ll want to start by painting the stems of the cups with the green paint. You don’t have to have it too thick because the glitter will help cover the glass.
While the paint is still wet sprinkle the glitter all over it. It’s easiest if you do this over a paper towel that way you can just pick up the towel when you’re done and pour the excess glitter back in the jar.
Next you’ll want to cut the Grinch face out of vinyl (I love my Cricut Explore Air 2).
Use transfer tape to attach the vinyl to the top of the glass.
And there you have it. I made 8 of these glasses in less than 30 minutes (you’ll want to let the glitter and paint set up for a few hours before serving though). The best part is they were plastic so I didn’t have to worry about them breaking when and if they get dropped. I’m thinking of making gold glitter glasses for our New Years’ party too!
