You Put a Spell on Me
Have you seen this new trend that’s around of dipped things?! Furniture legs, lamps, candlesticks, silverware…I’ve seen it all! I think it is such a fun idea and late one night it occurred to me it would be fun to dip a goblet/wine glass in some Halloween-ey colors. This would be the perfect addition to a Halloween Party or Dinner. Or you can add a quick note, some candy and make it a fun way to show someone you love them. So let’s get started.
- Paint (acrylic, latex, or spray) in color of your choice
- Brush (optional)
- “You Put a Spell on Me” Tag
- Coordinating ribbon
Begin by gathering your supplies. Now this would work best if you had a big can of paint in your color of choice. I wanted an orange stem, but didn’t want to buy a whole can of orange paint so I just painted it on with acrylic paint. (SHhhhhh….I KNOW it’s not actually DIPPED but no one has to know, right?!)
If you have a can of paint just dunk that bad boy in there. If using acrylic paint use a brush and do two coats with it drying in between. Or you could tape the glass off and use spray paint if you want. I bought my glass at the Dollar Store. That way if it gets broken or doesn’t look exactly like you want…only out a dollar!
Once it dries, fill it up with treats and tie on a cute tag! (And when did M&M’s stop carrying their Halloween colors?! No stores by me had the brown, orange, green and purple bag… that was what I was looking for. Oh well, the ‘autumn’ colors work ok.)
Think of all the possibilities?! It would be so cute with silver or black dipped stems for a sophisticated spooky party! And I haven’t washed mine so I can’t tell you how it holds up. I just plan to wipe mine out and use it for candy. But I’m assuming hand wash? And never paint the part you would drink from.
