Easy Painted Tumblers

Easy Painted Tumblers
Thank you all so much for such amazing feedback and for helping this project circulate all over the internet! My cups have held up pretty well due to not being used too often (they are currently just holding bobby pins in my bathroom) but several readers said after a little wear and tear, the paint comes off. Other readers have found that using paint specifically for glass leads to a much longer life! In the comments, readers have specifically stated that Martha Stewart Paints and DecoArt paints have lasted the best. I have used both, and love them both! The process of making them will remain the same, but these products should help prolong the life of your glassware. xo, z Here's the thing about Anthropologie; everything is gorgeous. Let the knockoff begin! The internet taught me that I can use acrylic paint on glass as long as I seal it afterwards, so thats what we are going to do here. In true knockoff fashion, I did one rainbow confetti, and one each of red and blue. xo,
