As I mentioned a while back, the roomie and I threw a classy New Year's Eve party at the Bank. The party went flawlessly and I believe it was all the little touches that brought it together. In particular, Danielle and I made sparkly champagne flutes, inspired by this Free People DIY, that added that extra, classy element. Our version of the DIY was a little different because we bought plastic champagne flutes to glitter up, rather than glass. Although I think I prefer the way the glitter turned out on Free People's flutes, ours were still cute and the clean-up was wayyyyyyy easier, which is always something I prefer. Check it.
To begin, you will need: Champagne flutes (glass or plastic- we bought our plastic ones at Target and spent $10 for 32), Elmer's Glue and Glitter.
Next, using your finger, rub the Elmer's glue on the champagne flute where you want the glitter to be. I just wanted my glitter on the bottom half, so I only put glue there. (I didn't take a picture of this step, sorry, you'll just have to imagine it). Then, pour the glitter over the glue. Do this over a plate so you can save the excess glitter. Shake it off, let dry and voila...a sparkly champagne flute!
(Note: I also sprayed Modge-Podge over the glasses to keep the glitter on, but I found this step a) unnecessary because some glitter fell off anyway and b) bad because it added a film to the glasses that made them look dirty. I stopped Modge-Podging midway through and those glasses turned out better.)
