Wedding season is creeping up quick, and that means a few things: Yes, endless “research” for what to wear to a spring wedding, dreaming up the perfect bridal shower theme and, you guessed it, bachelorette parties (AKA the the fun part!). If you’re hosting a bachelorette party this season, amp it up by taking your glassware to a super festive level. Whether you’re upcycling glasses that you already own or jazzing up a new set, a little paint, glitter and gold foil are sure to kick ’em up a notch. Get ready, ’cause your wine/shot/pint/cocktail glasses are about to be as pretty as the bride.


1. DIY Floating Glitter Tumbler: Tumblers are a necessity for any day of the week, but they’re especially needed for the bachelorette party you’re throwing. Snag a basic photo tumbler or travel mug and fill the clear compartment with glitter and water. Screw the two pieces together and you’ll be ready to pour in your favorite cocktail in no time.

2. DIY Glittered Champagne Flute: It’s a par-tay, which makes glitter a must. Pick up a set of plastic champagne glasses at the party store and use Mod Podge to create glitter stems. After you let them dry, they’ll be ready for the night. Cheers to glitter! (via Pretty My Party)


3. DIY Etched Glasses: Looking for a classy option? These etched glasses are super fun to make and add a simple-yet-unique touch to your glassware. Etch the bride’s initials on a whiskey tumbler or add a geometric design on stemless champagne flutes. Either way, your guests are about to be seriously impressed by your creativity.

4. DIY Polka Dot Highball Glasses: When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with polka dots. All you need to do to create this look is punch holes in a sheet of vinyl. Then, stick it on the glass and swipe on a coat of glass paint. Carefully remove the vinyl and let your DIY shine. (via Front + Main)


5. DIY Color Block Frosted Tumblers: Tape off sections of your glass and use a foam brush to press on the paint. This blotting method gives it a frosted look that’s super chic. They only take a few minutes to DIY, and it doesn’t get any better than that. (via Vicky Barone)


6. DIY Straw + Message Bottle: Whether you’re bottling your favorite creation or picking up your favorite spritzer, custom labels and patterned straws can make a serious statement. Just download your favorite printable or hand-lettered print, DIY a cute label and cut some ribbon to tie everything on. (via Style Me Pretty)


7. DIY Mid-Century Mod Cocktail Glasses: Buying mid-century modern glasses can be a little on the pricey side. Instead, make this starburst glassware for a budget-friendly option that’s ideal for a millennial’s bachelorette party. Use an X-ACTO knife to cut stars on painter’s tape and use it as a stencil to paint on the liquid gold leaf. (via Palm Springs Style)


8. DIY Tassel Wine Charms: One reason to amp up your glasses for the bachelorette party is so that you don’t pick up the wrong drink. See? It’s totally necessary. If you’re running low on time or don’t want to buy a new set of wine glasses to DIY, make these wine charms as an alternative. Plus, they’ll definitely come in handy for this party and the rest of your bashes this season. (via Sugar and Charm)


9. DIY Marbled Glassware: Your huge (like, actually giant) collection of nail polish is about to seriously come in handy. Use the same technique that you would to marble your nails on the bottom of plain cups. For this DIY, snag a set of glass cups so you can clean up the edges with acetone. Pro tip: Plastic cups don’t mix well with nail polish remover. (via


10. DIY Gold Leaf Cocktail Glasses: Gold foil is having a moment, and there isn’t a single person out there who’s mad about it. Put yours to good use by gilding clear glasses to create a brushed effect. The more imperfect, the better, so there’s no need to worry about making them precise. (via Kelli Hall)


11. DIY Pastel-Dipped Wine Glasses: Found: The DIY that you can do when you’re running super behind. If you’ve found yourself preparing for the party the night before, but still want to add a unique touch to your glasses, dip your wine glass stems in paint, let them dry and call it day. (via Boulevard Pink)


12. DIY Sprinkle-Dipped Glasses: Instead of buying a new set, dip your existing champagne glasses in sprinkles to give them a festive vibe. Yep, your hunt for the DIY that’s practically free is o-v-e-r. Bonus points are awarded to anyone who adds the adorable gumball drink stirrer. (via Bloom Designs)


13. DIY Gilded Stripe Glasses: You can never have too many tumblers. Buy a set of simple clear ones and paint on your favorite design. Painter’s tape is going to be your BFF because it makes doing these stripes *super* easy. You can reuse these glasses at every party you host this summer. Score! (We See Rainbows)


14. DIY Photo Wine Glasses: Instead of hanging a wall of photos at the bachelorette party, add them to the bottom of simple wine glasses. After the party, you can either send them home as favors for the bridesmaids or gift them to the bride so she’ll never forget the night. (via Brit + Co)


15. DIY Gold Confetti Tumblers: Confetti is totally necessary at any party, but if you’re not in the mood to clean up *that* mess, go for these DIY confetti tumblers instead. Stick adhesive dots to a glass cup and spray paint them your favorite color. Once it’s dry, peel ’em off, add your favorite cocktail and finish it off with a paper straw. (via Ernest Home Co.)


16. DIY Pineapple Paper Cup: Believe it or not, summer is *right* around the corner, and you know what that means? Cue the pineapple-themed everything. Purchase a pack of yellow paper cups and use a black permanent marker to create the pineapple design. If you want to really go over the top, glue on green paper to act as the leaves. (via Simple as That)


17. DIY Mason Jar Tumbler: If there are two things that we love more than anything, it’s mason jars and gold-dipped everything. Spice up your basic mason jars with a little gilded spray paint and letter decals to make it oh-so fancy. The best part? Your guests can take them home after the night is over, which means you’ve already got the party favors planned too. (via Pretty Providence)


18. DIY Painted Stemless Glasses: Add a set of stemless wine glasses to your cart to create these unique glasses. Instead of adding Mr. and Mrs., opt for things like MOH or BFF. Also, plastic glasses totally work for this. Hello, budget-friendly DIY! (via Something Turquoise)


19. DIY Wine + Shot Glass: Why choose between a wine glass and shot glass when you can have both? Pick up a set of plastic shooters and short tumblers and use epoxy to glue them together. Pro tip: Use glasses in the bride’s wedding colors. (via Brit + Co)
