How to decorate cocktail glasses for a party

Great news – my project on prettifying glassware for New Year’s Eve was published in Reloved magazine this month! Check out Issue 50 for the step-by-step guide to creating these decorated cocktail glasses.I spray-painted some of the stems, decorated the base with doilies, wrapped them in washi tape and dipped them in glitter. It’s a great way to make a mis-matched collection of glasses work together, and it’s so easy to tie the glasses into your party theme using patterned washi tape or coordinating paint colours. I also wrote a feature on Cuter Tudor blogger Amy’s gorgeous upcycled home. I loved looking through her fantastic interior photos and have been totally inspired by her holiday decor and seasonal tablescapes. It’s well worth a look – get ready to pin all of her photos on your ‘dream home’ Pinterest board!I’m super-chuffed to be included in Reloved’s anniversary Issue. A successful run of 50 is quite an achievement for the magazine and I’m so proud to be a regular contributor to this famous upcycling publication. I can’t wait to share more of my favourite projects with you in 2018 and fingers crossed that some of my DIYs end up being featured in the magazine. Oh, and by the way – my project is one of the featured projects on the cover eeeeek!
