Frosted Glasses

We hosted a Chili Cook Off last weekend at our place and I wanted to make some kind of party favors for people to bring home and remember the day. I thought Pint Glasses would be perfect, but they were REALLY expensive! Instead, I invested in this stuff: Rustoleum Frosted Glass Spray Paint. It was only a few bucks at Home Depot!I looked into the etching creams at the craft store and they looked like a lot of work and a big mess. This was soo easy! I bought Ikea beer glasses ( I think I got 48 of them for $70!) and I used contact paper, cut a little chili pepper into it, and covered the glass. Then I just sprayed into the opening and voila! I know it's a little hard to see the frosted here is another angle:
Then, with leftover cut-outs of little chili peppers that I had laying around, I decorated the other glasses. I put the chili pepper sticker on the glasses, and then sprayed around them....

Here's another look:
Cute huh? I will admit, it took me all night after work, but it was worth it. They turned out pretty good and were just waiting for our guests to pick up on the way out!


  1. Love this idea! So classy, cute, and clever! The perfect memorable party favor!

  2. Hmph. That's very cool, and a great favor idea.
