“Artful Favors”

20121010-192505.jpg

Are you planning a wedding? Many couples literally break their banks to have the wedding of their dreams. Well, I’m not a wedding planner lol; but I am an artist; so the least I can do is share this unique idea for wedding favors for the bridesmaids and groomsmen.
All you need are wine glasses, which can be purchased from one of the dollar stores and an acrylic paint set with brushes from an arts and crafts supply store like Hobby Lobby or Michaels. For the groomsmen, you may want to use beer glassware that’s not as delicate as a champagne flute. Now, all you need is a steady hand and a creative mind to first draw out a sketch on paper–a caricature of the bride and groom.
Once your design is sketched to your liking, you’re all set to paint! You can use sparkly, glitter paint for the bride and glue Swarovski crystals for added glamour. Personalize your stemware with your wedding date and initials for the finishing touch! I’m certain your wedding party will enjoy toasting to your nuptials with one-of-a-kind champagne glasses! On the other hand, if you would rather pay someone else to do the artwork and provide the stemware, the pair in the pic below can be purchased on Etsy.com.
This hand painted pair by PickleLily Design is a work of art! You can find this pair for $60 + $20 Shipping/Handling at:
