It is actually pretty easy. I just printed a bunch of pics that I found in clip art or on the internet and taped them to the inside of the glass. I tried to keep things simple so there wasn't a lot of detail to mess up. Then I just worked down the rows and made sure where I was going to paint next there wasn't one still wet. The paint dries quick enough that after you get a few done you can rub across it and it won't smear.

Wow they look amazing! That is such a good idea about taping the clipart to the inside. I was thinking that your glasses were so cute and wanted to steal the idea but I was sad because I am not very good at drawing but I think I may be able to do it if I copy over a picture....thanks!!!

I used two pieces of elastic wiring (it wasn't actually wire, but I don't know what else to call it, it was stretchy stuff). Then I used a size 7 seed bead in two colors. I just started beading and created my pattern. I made the "square" teal color pattern by placing each of the sets of thread in one direction and the other through the opposite direction then pulled tight. Then I put one bead on each set of threads and then repeated the first part by threading in opposite directions. I have to make one more pair, so I will take pictures as I go to give you a better idea. I'm sure this makes no sense at all!

I'm lazy. I can't somewhat draw, but this was way easier. Just remember to keep the patterns simple or else you will get lost and will have to draw in your own details.

WOW this stuff is great! I'm very jealous of all you crafty women out there because the things at your wedding will be so unique... maybe I will have to start tapping into my crafty side (if I have one! lol).

 

Your bridesmaids are going to love these!

And I also think it's super cute that you have "bride" stuff for yourself =)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
