A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how to make Candy Heart Bath Bombs . In this article I shared how my idea of Valentine’s Day has changed over the years from my days of yearning to find love as a teenager, to celebrating my love for my family and friends now. A couple of years ago two of my girlfriends, Salma from The Write Balance and Raj from Pink Chai Living introduced me to the idea of Galentine’s Day. Around that time I also saw a few of my fellow blogger friends writing about how they were throwing Galentine’s Day parties with their girlfriends. I loved the idea– a day to celebrate your love for your girlfriends! Sign me up!  

It wasn’t until this year when I decided to write a Galentine’s Day post of my own and started doing a bit of research that I realized where the origins of this amazing holiday came from.

What is Galentine’s Day you ask?

Galentine’s Day is a holiday Amy Poehler’s Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope created that occurs every year on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day. 

In the words of Leslie Knope herself:

“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”

Seriously though lady friends, it’s pretty awesome and if you haven’t started celebrating Galentine’s Day already, you should definitely start! 

I made these DIY Glitter Dipped Wine Glasses with Galentine’s Day in mind. A couple of years ago I made a glitter coffee mug as a secret santa gift and I had so much fun making it I wanted to repeat the process. I decided to revamp the project with these fun stemless wine glasses. They have fun quotes on them that will help you express to your girlfriends just how much they mean to you. These would be so fun to make for a leisurely Galentine’s Day Crafternoon– You know the kind. Where you start the craft, enjoy some conversation and good eats, craft a bit more, enjoy a bit of bubbly and girl talk, craft a bit more and go home with an awesome project! 

Ready to learn how to make them? Read on for my Galentine’s Day DIY Glitter Wine Glasses!

Step 1: Decide how far up your glass you would like your glitter to go. Wrap a piece of painter’s tape around the glass so that the bottom of the painter’s tape is where you would like the top of your glitter to go.

Step 2: Using your foam brush, apply a thin layer of mod podge between the bottom of the painter’s tape and the bottom of the glass (I didn’t put glitter on the very bottom of my glass where the glass touches the table, just to where the glass would meet the table). While your mod podge is still wet sprinkle your glitter so that it thickly covers the mod podge.

Allow the mod podge to dry and then tap the glass to remove excess glitter.

Depending on how well covered your glass is you may want to add more glitter. I decided to put two layers of glitter on each of my glasses. To do this, once your first layer of mod podge and glitter is dry, apply a second layer of mod podge on top of the glitter. I do this by putting a small amount of mod podge on my foam brush and applying it in tapping motion, then repeat the above step by sprinkling more glitter on top of the wet mod podge. Allow your mod podge to dry and then tap the glass to remove excess glitter.

Step 3: Once you’ve achieved your desired level of “glitteriness” you’ll want to seal your glitter. Once your last layer of glitter and mod podge is dry, apply a layer of mod podge over the glitter by placing a small amount of mod podge on your foam brush and applying it in a tapping motion. Cover the glitter completely then allow to dry. Repeat this process one or two more times to fully seal in your glitter.

Step 4: Once your glasses are fully dry carefully remove the painter’s tape.

Step 5: Upload your word art images to Cricut Design Space. You do this by selecting new project, clicking the upload button in the left hand side toolbar, clicking upload image, selecting the image from your computer, selecting simple and then clicking on all of the white space (this will have the Cricut cut away these areas). Don’t forget to click on the areas inside the letters, so for example in the above image the areas in the loop of the Y, the center of the O the center and the loop of the A, the loop of the R and E, etc. When you are finished it will look like the image below.

Note: The Mod Podge Dishwasher Safe Formula takes 1 month to cure, so these won’t be dishwasher safe for 1 month. Even after 1 month I would suggest washing them by hand and not letting them soak in water.
