Today's project was never meant to be a project. But sometimes that just works out, I suppose...

I was perusing Pinterest a few weeks back when I saw a recipe for a watermelon margarita. While I like a fruity margarita as much as the next person, I was more interested in the glass the drink was served in.

These anthro glasses immediately caught my eye, because they looked ADORABLE and totally DIY-able! So while on a recent trip to the store whose name shall not be spoken to get some kitty supplies, I also picked up some paint pens. I was heading to the home department to pick up some glasses when I remembered a pretty set of glasses that we were given at our recent housewarming party.

*I would like to let the sweet and beautiful party guest know that I loved the glasses "as is", but I can tell she's a gal who appreciates a good makeover :) *

So here were the glasses before:

Instead of using all of the colors like the inspiration photo, I decided to stick with colors that went with my kitchen/living area since I'm all matchy-matchy like that. I used white, brown, silver, navy blue, and light blue paint pens. I just did one color at a time, randomly placing dots of paint on the outside of the glass. I tried to make the dots less concentrated as I went up the glass, and keep the paint on the bottom half of the glasses.

So here's the after!

I think it worked out pretty well and came super close to the original just with own little spin on it! Now, in full disclosure, these will definitely have to be hand washed and may not even hold up that well because the paint can be easily scratched off. However, I have ever intention on figuring out a way to do this project in a more permanent way because I think these would make the cutest wedding gift! I know I would love to receive them as a gift! I saw somewhere online about a paint pen that can be used on glass/porcelain and baked to make it permanent, so I will check that out. Anyway, I'm only out the cost of the paint pens, and I used so little of the paint that I can use them in other projects.
