Make your own unique patriotic flag wineglasses! This easy step by step tutorial will show you how to easily make “American flag” wineglass decor which are perfect for a centerpiece, mantel decor or table decorations. This is an easy to make craft project.

If you read this blog regularly, you may have noticed I love these simple to make wineglass crafts! They make excellent tabletop, centerpiece, and fireplace decor. You can make one, three or a dozen. The colors can vary (well, usually, for this one I would stick with the red, white and blue), and no two wineglasses have to look exactly alike, although they can if that is the look you would like to achieve.

You can see all the different painted wineglass crafts by clicking here. However, if you are in the summer season, this DIY Pineapple Candle Holder is something you may want to consider – or perhaps this adorable (it is one of my favorites!) Love Bug Wineglass DIY.

I have eight wineglass crafts to date ecompassing most holidays or seasons, and the reason is because these painted wine glass crafts are simple to make, fun, and are finished in no time flat. Truly just about any adult can make them.

• Paint the inside of one wineglass blue with your foam paint brush.
• Allow to dry.
• Paint the outside of one wineglass blue with your foam paint brush.
• Allow to dry.

• Note: on any of these painted wineglass decorations if you feel one coat of paint is not enough coverage (even with painting the inside and outside), just allow the first coat of paint to dry completely, then add a second, thin coat for more complete coverage. Allow to dry completely.

• Turn the painted wineglasses upside down.
• Paint four or five red strips around the bowl of each of the white wineglases. Leave white space in between (see photograph). You want it to remind people of the red and white in the flag so: red, white, red, white, etc.
• Allow to dry.
• Paint a second coat of red over the red stripes.
• Allow to dry.
• Note: These shown were done freehand. You may (I did not try it) want to use green frog tape or some other gentle paint-tape to help guide your lines for the red stripes.

Spring Fairy Garden DIY Tutorial

Spring Fairy Garden DIY Tutorial. This spring fairy garden is easy to put together. Great for tabletop decor, or for older children to play with under adult supervision, you and your children will have a lot of fun gathering your spring fairy garden supplies, and making your own personal miniature spring fairy garden this year!





Spring Fairy Garden DIY Tutorial

Ah, fairy gardens! They can be made with living plants including flowers, moss, etc, or with faux (fake) mini trees, animals, fairies, grass, etc. This spring fairy garden DIY tutorial uses manufactured plants and decorations (fake). You could place this spring fairy garden outside for decor, or use the spring fairy garden on a table as part of a centerpiece. This is highly individual, so you are only bound by your own imagination. Spring was spelled out in the white mini stones, but you could spell out Easter, or eliminate a word entirely.

Instead of using a broken pot, the base of a 12″ Terra Cotta Flower Pot was used.

While I linked to materials below, I strongly suggest you head over to your local Michaels, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn’s to see and feel what you plan on using in your spring fairy garden. Your local Dollar Tree or Big Lots is an excellent source for glass stones and even filling sands.

Spring Fairy Garden Supplies:

Terra Cotta Flower Pot Saucer, at least 12 inches wide
• Filler such as White Sand, White Mini Stones, or Gravel
• Assorted Glass Gems or Sstones
Mini Chenille Chicks
• Assorted Small Furniture Pieces (dinette set is ideal)
• Mini Eggs and Basket
• Pastel Colored Trees or Flowers – such as Bottle Brush Trees or maybe these Bottle Brush Trees
• Mini Greenery
• Assorted Wood Letter Tiles
Enamel Paint: Pastel Colors
Paint Brushes
Small Easel or Paper Plate

Spring Fairy Garden Directions:

• Begin by applying a strip of paint in your choice of pastel color around the rim of the terra cotta saucer. If you wish you can color the entire saucer, however, once it is filled it may be hard to see the color, which is why this terra cotta saucer is just painted at the rim.
• Allow the paint to dry completely.

• Fill the terra cotta saucer approximately 2/3 of the way full with a filler such as white sand or white mini gravel.

• If you are looking to this tutorial as a guide for your miniature fairy garden accessories, place the pastel trees (bottle brush trees were used) along the back of the saucer. They are taller than the rest of the fairy garden items so you want them in the back so as not to obstruct any of the other fairy garden decor from view.
• Push down a bit so the trees remain upright.
• Place some small greenery pieces along the tree line to create shrubs.

• Assemble the dinette set. This is set up to look as if the chicks are having a little party. Place a chick to each chair and arranged the dinette set with some mini eggs and grass on top of the table.
• Push into your filler a bit so they remain upright.

• Take some wooden letter tiles or old Scrabble tiles and spell out a word of your choosing. This craft used “Spring”, but “Easter”, “Rebirth”, etc anything that is a has a springy connotation would work. Or, no tiles at all if you do not have them or care for them. If you are using tiles, arrange the tiles so the word(s) is spelled correctly and that the tiles are wedged into the filler allowing them to stand upright.
• Decorate around the tiles with some additional chicks, so it looks like they are hiding behind them or even assembling them.

• All these spring fairy garden accessories were left unglued so children can play and interact with this spring fairy garden. If you wish for it to be more of a display piece, you can use hot glue to glue the pieces in place.
