How To Upcycle a Wine Glass into a Planter

Fed up with random glasses in the cupboard? In this easy tutorial I show you how to upcycle a wine glass into a pretty planter that you’ll want on display.

I’m trying hard to de-clutter my cupboards. I have so many things that are too good to throw out, but I don’t want on display. I’ve already turned our unloved and broken mugs into planters, and love how they turned out. They now have pride of place in my sitting room and look fab.

 

Wondering what to do with the old coffee cups stuck in the back of your cupboard? Here's an easy craft idea to repurpose broken mugs into cute planters.

 

Now I am tackling some glasses that I bought home from a gin festival. They are beautiful balloon gin glasses and have logos printed on both sides. But I can’t see myself ever using these as glasses so need a new use for them.

There are lots of wine glass craft ideas on the internet, but they all presume that the glass you are using is clear.

 

So what can you do if you have branded glasses? Christmas wine glass centrepieces will never look so good with a company logo stamped on the side of the glass.

My solution is upcycling wine glasses using some clever texturing before spray painting the glass to cover the logo altogether.

What I used to upcycle my glass.

Top Tip: I’ve started using a rotating cake stand (Amazon Affiliate link) protected with a plastic bag when spray painting my crafts. It allows you to spin the object as you spray it rather than trying to move around the object. It does make the whole process much easier, so I highly recommend it if you do have a cake turntable to hand.

I started by sticking the adhesive bumper pads around my glass. They adhered well without having to use any extra glue.

Then I started applying the spray paint.

I was hoping for a professional finish with no drips, so I took care to use lots of thin layers and allowed each one to dry before applying the next.

I think the spray paint transforms the glass, and the bumper dots give it a unique look.

I’ve decided to use my upcycled wine glass as a planter, but a narrower one would also make a lovely vase or candle holder.
