How to decorate the wedding glasses with their own hands
Decorate the usual glasses for the wedding is a snap. General decoration, as a rule, is performed in the same style, making distinctive accents “bride-groom”. We present to your attention one of the options for decorating glasses for a wedding. Following the step by step instructions, you can create the same original glasses.
- champagne glasses - 2 pcs .;
- glue gun, scissors, needle with thread;
- superglue, cotton pads, alcohol (or alcohol-containing substitute);
- artificial green ornaments (grass, leaves, twigs);
- lace, taffeta (silk, satin) - golden color;
- matter for flowers (blue and red) or ready-made flowers, golden narrow paper tape (tape).
Do-it-yourself wedding glasses - step by step instructions
- Before embellishing the glasses, carefully check the dishes for cracks and chips. Then degrease the glasses, rubbing them with alcohol.
- From lace (tulle, guipure) cut two stripes 3.5 cm wide, 15 cm long. Folding them in half along the length, gather them along the open edge.
- Mark on both glasses the place of gluing golden braid. The tape is glued to hide the unattractive moments of fastening the lace assembly.
Tip: if the tape is one-sided, as in the present embodiment, - glue it, necessarily, with the golden side inside. This is done to make the glasses look as elegant from the inside as from the outside.
Apply a drop of superglue to the glass, press the band in the center with a cotton pad dipped in alcohol - this will remove excess glue from the surface of the glass. See photos and videos.
- Assemble the lace clearly on the contour of the braid and glue it with the open edge down. Try not to go beyond the braid.
- Cut out of the golden brocade two rectangles corresponding to the size of the lower part (from the braid to the beginning of the leg) of the glasses. In our case, the dimensions are 13x8. Iron the sides and one longitudinal edge as shown in the photo.
- Gently, making light touches with a glue gun, glue the fabric to the glass over the lace, trying to close all the seams and joints.
- From the brocade fabric, cut out narrow strips (about 8x4 cm), iron them in half along the length and wrap them tightly the legs of the glasses in a spiral. At the beginning, in the middle and at the end make adhesive fastenings. Glue the green decorations, distributing the elements in a certain order corresponding to the composition.
- At this stage, the glasses already have sufficient decoration. It remains to distribute the roles of the bride and groom. For the glass of the groom prepare five blue roses of different sizes, for the glass of the bride - seven red roses. Flowers you can make yourself from the stripes of red, blue and golden satin, collecting them on a string and forming leaves and shape at your discretion
- Fix the finished flowers on the surface of the glass with an adhesive gun.
To the note: If during the wrapping of glasses with a cloth any minor malfunctions in the work arose, then the rosettes will completely hide these places.
