i love all things sparkly, gold and pretty that will brighten up the house or workspace. I recently came across a set of stemless gold dotted champagne flutes at Winners, which I regret not picking up, but I realized how I can easily replicate the gold dotted effect on ordinary champagne flutes I have at home.
I found myself spontaneously starting a DIY project with 3 items I already had around the house: gold paint, Q-tips and clear champagne glasses. Make sure the flutes are well washed and wiped dry on the outside. Turn them over so that the rim of the flutes are on the table. Pour a dollop of gold paint onto a plastic plate (a little goes a long way) and dip the tip of a Q-tip and start close to the stem of the flute, dabbing dots about 1mm in size, keeping some space in between each dot. As you move up the flute, make the dots smaller, so you’ll be dabbing a dot once with the Q-tip and extending the space between the dots. Once the paint dries, you may want to put on a second coat to a achieve a more intensified metallic gold look.
And there you go! Your very own gold dotted champagne flutes! If you can’t find gold paint, you can alternatively use a gold permanent marker or gold nail polish. You’re now ready for your next dinner party. Cheers!
