Gorgeous Anthropologie Inspired Metallic Dotted Glasses DIY

Bored of those plain tired looking drinking glasses?  All you need is an oil-based metallic Sharpie to do this DIY project.  You don’t want dots?  Draw squares, triangles or whatever makes you smile.  I like the simplicity and clean look of these glasses.  Thanks to Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body for the idea.

Welcome back for the fourth and final month of the Knock Out Knock Off series.  I am so sad that this series is coming to an end.  But I am excited to share with you a fabulous and easy way to make metallic dotted glasses, a project inspired by an item of one of my favorite stores, Anthropologie.  This post contains some affiliate links.  Click here for my full disclosure policy.

First, let me show you the beautiful Anthropologie’s champagne glasses that inspired my project.  They are beautiful, but they cost $58.00.  Yikes.  I clearly have champagne taste.  But, as usual, I was on a domestic beer kind of budget.


1) Start by cleaning an oil or dirt off of your glasses so that you have a clean surface to work with.  Then, use your metallic paint pen to make dots all over the bottom portion of your glass.  I concentrated my dots more heavily toward the bottom, and made them more sparse at the top.
