Roses are red, violets are blue… I don’t know about you guys, but I’m that person who has themed wine glasses for every holiday/time of year. I’m also that person that collects tacky city wine glasses when I travel.
Valentine’s Day was however one holiday that was missing from my collection, so I decided to make my own using my Cricut maker. (I’m on a roll with these Valentine’s themed crafts!)
In general, I’d have to say that glassware (specifically wine glasses) are one of my favourite things to create when it comes to Cricut crafts. I just love how quick and easy they are and how a little bit of adhesive vinyl can transform a glass.
For this DIY, we’re going to be making two different wine glasses, “roses are red, and so is my wine” and “be
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Two wine glasses
- Cricut Maker (Cricut.com / Amazon.ca)
- Cricut essential tools
- Cutting mat
- Adhesive foil or vinyl, in the colour of your choice. I used matte gold adhesive foil.
- Transfer paper
Before we get started, if this is your first time using adhesive materials or transfer paper, you might find this video by Cricut helpful.
Step 1: wash your wine glasses so that the surface is completely clean. Next, roll out your material onto the cutting mat and fire up Design Space and load the project cut file.
Step 2: following the prompts on your screen/in Design Space, load your machine and start cutting. Once the designs are cut, it’s time to start weeding. (Or removing the excess material from the sheet, so that you’re left only with your design.)
Step 3: it’s time to transfer that design! Cut out a piece of transfer paper that is roughly the same size, or slightly larger, than your design. Remove the protective film from the transfer paper and then place the sticky side face down on-top of your design on the mat. Use the scraper tool to smooth out air bubbles and to transfer your design to the transfer paper. Carefully remove the transfer paper (and your design) from the mat by pealing back the edges.
Step 4: grab your wine glass and carefully place your design on it. Press down firmly to ensure it sticks and remove any air bubbles. Carefully peel back the transfer paper.
That’s it! The last step is to pour yourself a glass of wine and put your brand new, custom wine glasses to good use. Cheers!
