I have a Valentine’s Day Craft project for you today, although the truth is, you could do this for any type of celebration where you might need a champagne flute! This is a super-quick nail polish DIY that can make your table setting look extra special… for that special someone in your life.
Best of all, only four materials are needed (five if you count the Champagne)!
- Champagne flutes x 2
- Red or pink nail polish
- Cotton buds
- Nail polish remover
You’ve probably guessed by now that you’ll be using the cotton buds to dip into the nail polish to make heart shapes on your champagne flutes! It really is that easy. But let me tell you how to make these heart shapes as there are a few tips I can share with you to hopefully help you achieve actual heart shapes and not red or pink blobs.
Ok, first of all, give your champagne flutes a good clean and dry. You don’t want to have to wash them immediately after you’ve decorated them!
Pour out a little nail polish into a tray (or Tupperware lid). Dip the cotton bud into the nail polish and dab once onto the glass flute at an angle. Then dip into the nail polish and make another dab in the opposite direction, over the nail polish you did the first time. In a sort of X motion.
That may be enough to get the heart shape just right for you, but if not, just dab over the heart again to elongate the sides if you need to. If you make a mistake, fear not! Simply wipe it away with nail polish remover!
Work your way around the glass flute dabbing on little hearts wherever you want to place them. For this tutorial, I decorated the bottom third of the glass as I thought this looked really pretty. But if you want to decorate the whole flute all the way around, go right ahead!
Leave to dry for at least an hour before doing anything with them. If you need to wash the champagne flutes, you can do so gently with warm soapy water. But don’t scrub too vigorously as you don’t want all of your hard work to go to waste before you have time to try them out for a Valentine’s Day toast!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that your heart design champagne flutes turn out brilliantly! Why not subscribe to my blog for more craft tutorials like this?
