Wedding Goblets

Ready for toasting!  I used raffia & ribbon to embellish.
I saw this cute idea at First Monday Trade Days, which is a huge shopping event in Canton, TX.  It is held on a weekend before the first Monday of every month.  The goblets sell for around $15.00 a piece.   Hmmmm, I thought, I think I'll try that!! Our youngest son & his bride-to-be are getting married soon at a ranch in the Texas Hill Country.  I thought that these goblets would fit in perfectly for their special theme.   I am so thrilled that they are going to use these for their wedding toast...so perfect for such a special couple!!!

Here's what you need to make these:

clean jelly jars
clean glass candle holders (Dollar Tree)
glass bond (Hobby Lobby)
re-usable stencils (Hobby Lobby)
Armour Etch glass etching cream (Hobby Lobby)
disposable gloves to protect hands
ribbon, etc. for embellishment

Follow the instructions for etching the stencil onto the glass jelly jar.  You could easily omit this step, if desired.

Attach the candle holder to the jelly jar & let dry 24 hours.  Embellish your goblet however you choose.  I've seen crystals glued on, also.  I would only hand wash these goblets.

Use your coupons at Hobby Lobby.


Use painters tape to secure stencil.
Finished goblet! 

You can also use pint-size canning jars, which would be nice for ice tea!

  7. I must be living under a rock because I don't remember seeing these before. I know I have seen candleholders glued to other things, but not this kind of jar. They are very cute and creative. Thanks for teaching us how easy these goblets are to make! Thanks for linking them to the Your Cozy Home Party!
