Put your credit card, glass etching kit, and puffy paint down. Phew! In honor of one of my BFFs saying "I do" in exactly one month from today, I am excited to share how I made these fabulous glasses to use on the first day of her new chapter.
Here's what you'll need:
Champagne flutes & tall pilsner beer glasses in bulk
2 or 3 rolls of 1.5 inch wide ribbon (in tux + bridesmaid dress colors), $2.50 ea.
White 3 inch wide lace, $5
Accent colored thin ribbon (for the guys), $2.50
Lace ribbon AND string of pearls (for the girls), $5
White tulle, $3
E6000 glue, $4
*all purchased at Hobby Lobby*
Step 1: Start on a spacious surface covered in an old sheet or newspaper.
E6000 glue gets messy!
Step 2: Measure how much ribbon you’ll need to wrap around 1 pilsner glass.
Cut enough strips for as many groom + groomsmen glasses you’ll be covering, and glue the ribbon tightly around.
It helps to glue one end, wrap, then glue the other end on top.
Step 3: Create mini bow ties with your accent colored thin ribbon.

Once finished, glue them to your tuxes.
Step 4: Don't forget the groom!
Use the lace fabric for groom's bow tie in place of the accent ribbon.
Add pearls from your string of pearls as buttons! Done.
Step 5: Repeat step 2 for the flutes.
Step 6: Make the bride's extra special.
Wrap your tulle around a few times, and tie a string in the center.
Trim the ends to create your tulle tutu.
For extra poof, make two - one for each side base of the flute.
Step 7: Add any necessary finishing touches.
Wrap the lace around, add your string of pearls and lace trim (optional), and anything else fabulous.
Go above & beyond and wrap your ribbon around twice for a "sweetheart-top" look.
