Chalk and Wine. Great fit.

I don't know about you, but I can never remember which one is my glass at a party! And although I love those cute little wine charms, I so easily forget which one is mine. So necessity became the mother of invention at a recent party and since then a favorite gift for friends ... chalk stemmed wine glasses! Everyone has their name on their glass and there are no excuses for sampling someone else's full glass!

The process is so simple... all you need are:

  • wine glasses (cheap or pricey)

  • chalkboard paint (any variety will do)

  • sponge brush

  • masking tape

I like to use a latex based paint, because it adheres so well to the glass and needs only a few layers. There is a great varieties of wine, whiskey, martini and cocktail glasses, which all make for fun gifts. You can start at the dollar store, in case you mess up, but even those will look a million dollars when you're done.

Tape off the stem up to the point you want to paint. With one glass the top line isn't critical and a run-off effect can be quite charming. With multiple glasses in a set, it may be more visually appealing to have a uniform line. But it's art ... so anything goes!

Start painting your layers. Lots of thin layers are better than a couple of thick ones. I prefer using a sponge brush, so there isn't any streaking, which makes writing awkward. The finish with a sponge brush is smoother. When I first tried out this craft, I dipped the wine stem into the chalkboard paint ... but it was an epic fail. There is too much paint, which has to run somewhere... either down onto the paper you're placing the glass on and then making removal of the dried glass exceptionally messy, or straight onto the glass if it's upside down. Either way, lesson learnt! Apply one thin layer after another, as the paint dries. I do one above and dry upside down. Then I flip the glass over and paint the base. This way there is uniform coverage.

Once you're done. remove the tape and get some wine in it !!! And remember to write your name on your base.

Cheers! Now there are no excuses for stealing anyone else's sips!

Hand wash these lovelies, because the paint will eventually peel off in the dishwasher. Learnt that lesson too.

Create. Enjoy. Repeat.

I just went to my first Three & Me workshop. It was a wonderful experience. Claire is a warm hostess and an excellent instructor. Making everyone feel engaged and successful. The materials are top notch and every detail is well thought out. It’s a great escape for a personal creative moment or a fun way to connect with friends and family while expressing your inner artist.

Such a fun string art class tonight! Claire is a wonderful instructor and everything was so beautiful; the display, the art, the examples, the supplies, the snacks! So fun!

This is truly a fun night out! Claire's instruction is helpful, humorous and fun! I love how she allowed us options to be creative and put our own twist on our projects. There is a lot of attention to detail with the set-up, supplies and refreshments which did not go unnoticed.  I can't wait for the next project!

What a fun evening! Claire has thought of every detail and guides you step by step through the whole process! She is such an encourager and makes you feel like you have just made a masterpiece! I highly recommend her classes! I can't wait to take another one!

I had such a fun evening! Three & Me had everything presented beautifully and organized in a way that made it easy to follow along for those of us that aren't necessarily crafters by nature! Thank you for a fun night!

I craft a lot at home, but doing crafts in a class with friends is so much better. THREE & ME makes it so easy to do the things I am interested in, without having to find the supplies and figure out how to do it on my own. I've just booked my next ladies night with Claire! I can't wait. 

Vancouver, WA

Tonight, a bunch of lucky ladies got to craft along side one of the very best. Claire's heart, is hands done one of the very best and those of us who were there got to create something amazing that we will proudly display in our homes. Many laughs and much fun was had by all. I highly recommend one of Three & Me classes to anyone in the area! Spread kindness around like confetti!!

Art is not my strength. I don't have a creative bone in my body. So I came to a workshop because my friend made me... and I made something I now love. I was expecting to sit and watch, but landed up getting fully involved! My husband and kids don't believe that I made it myself. I'm coming again and I'm bringing my sister... she's even worse at crafts than me.
