I love Urban Outfitter’s aesthetic when it comes to home decor and fashion, but I’m not always willing to pay the higher price tag for it. Thus, I’ve created a hack for these amazing ombré copper stemless wine glasses that I found while perusing their website (and making a mental wishlist of things that I know I won’t ever buy).
The BEST part is, is this hack cost me $2 + the cost of spray paint (but I already had that). When it comes to DIYing my own dishware, the Dollar Tree is one of my favorite go-to places to get my supplies. They actually have a pretty decent array of basic dishware that isn’t cheap quality! So, all you need for this Urban Outfitter hack is 2 (or how many ever you want) stemless wine glasses, copper metallic spray paint, clear acrylic sealant, and newspaper for creating a spray barrier. Alright, let’s get to it!
DIY $2 Ombré Copper Stemless Wine Glasses (Urban Outfitters Hack!)
- stemless wine tumblers (I got mine from The Dollar Tree)
- copper metallic spray paint (I got mine from the hardware store–if you get spray paint from the craft store, it’s typically more expensive!)
- clear acrylic sealant
With your glass turned upside down, lightly spray spurts of paint around the glass. It’s really important to do this lightly because if you spray too hard, the paint will start to drip down and create drip lines! So we will spray lightly, and do a few coats 🙂 Alos, be sure to keep a 5-6 inch distance–you don’t want to spray too close to the glass or it won’t create that gradated ombré effect.
As you spray, slowly turn the glass around so that you get all sides of the bottom. Once you’re satisfied with the look, finish by spraying directly above the glass so that you completely coat the bottom. Once you’re satisfied, set aside to let dry completely (depending on your paint, this shouldn’t take more than an hour.)
Finally, you’ll seal the paint with your clear, acrylic sealant. (Make sure you’re still only spraying the outside while the glass is upside down.) Let dry and that’s it!
Please note: Even though these are sealed, it’s best to gently wash by hand to ensure that the paint doesn’t scratch off. I haven’t tested mine in a dishwasher yet, but I’ll be sure to update this once I do and let you know how it goes!
