          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 =)
