Craft Of The Day: Embellished Stemware


Not all gold needs to be expensive, as this Craft Of The Day proves! Just a little bit of gold spray paint is all you need to make your tired stemware look fresh and glamorous. Added bonus: This craft is completely customizable. If gold's not your color, use a shimmering silver or bold black instead. You can even try using a tumbler if you don't want to mess with your wine glasses. Just scroll down for the how-to.

Editor's Note: Add this to the "obvious" file, but definitely take care not to paint any area that would come in contact with your mouth. Also, you'll want to hand-wash these, as the high heat of the dishwasher will remove the paint.
