DIY Glassware Gifts

Can you believe it’s almost mid-April? The weather in NH hasn’t been spring like—it’s been snowing—but I have been thinking about warm weather and entertaining. As you know I enjoy sharing my home decorating and crafting photos, but this week I am sharing photos of my son’s creations!

My son designed and produced a variety of beautiful pieces for a friend’s bachelorette party weekend. Each guest at the celebration received a gift bag containing a stemless wine glass, champagne flute, and trinket tray. The items were useful during the weekend, and will be a great item of remembrance for the future.

Materials list

Beautiful fonts and motivational sayings. What saying will you include on your trinket trays?

My son created these designs using Adobe Illustrator. However, designs may be purchased online for any special occasion! Personalized items similar to these make wonderful graduation, bridal shower and wedding gifts. With college graduates starting careers—often away from home—I am sure they would enjoy a trinket tray or two in their office for paperclips and keys! Newlyweds and grads will both enjoy a personalized set of wine or champagne glasses—or both—for their new home.

I hope your creative gears are spinning and you have a list of gift recipients in hand. Now is the time to start creating! Send me photos that capture your creativity on the TU living Facebook page or leave me a comment on this page.
