Saw it, Pinned it, Did it...Glitter Style

Today I'm linking up with Katie and Steph for their  Saw it, Pinned it, Did it link up! I love this link up because it gives me an excuse to do all of the holiday crafts I pinned and would otherwise probably never get around to doing.

It also just so happens that today is not only this fabulous link-up, but the day Bennett is arriving (my worries in this post came true, and she was delayed a few days), AND her 24th birthday! So I knew her present/welcome basket had to be extra special.  Since this is the first time I am seeing her in exactly a year and a half (to the day) I figured a basket with throw backs to our college sorority days was in order.
Do you know what that means?
Cheap wine and glitter.  And lots of it.
So, when I saw this on Pinterest I knew it had to be part of her basket.
It was inexpensive, fun, and so easy (which is a must for me)!

Glitter Wine Glasses!
 
All you need are wine glasses, modge podge, a brush, and the glitter of your choice! You can also seal it with a layer or two of lacquer to make them hand washable.

First, paint the portion of the glass you want to glitterify with modge podge.

Then, sprinkle the glitter with reckless abandon :)
 Leave to dry over night and you're done.  The next morning, spray with lacquer to seal it all up.

Just add wine, and you're really good to go!
