What you'll need:
- One large plastic wine glass
- Tissue paper, torn into small pieces
- Decorative touches (small butterflies, flowers, jewels, etc.)
- Paint brush
- Craft glue
How to make it:
- Paint your wine glass with a thin layer of craft glue and cover it with small pieces of tissue paper (hint: only paint one section of the glass at a time so that the glue doesn't dry before you have a chance to apply all of the tissue).
- Once the entire glass is covered in tissue, paint a thin layer of glue over everything to seal it, like shellac.
- Wait at least 1 hour for the glue to set and dry.
- Cut a piece of ribbon and dot one side of it with glue. Wind the ribbon (glue side down) around the stem of the wine glass until it is completely covered.
- Decorate the rest of the glass with bits of ribbon (here we've cut out small circles of ribbon and glued them sporadically around the glass) and any other decorative touches you like. We've used tiny painted butterflies that come with an adhesive backing. All you have to do is peel off the protective paper and stick them on.
- Use different coloured tissue paper so that your goblet looks like it's made out of stained glass. (Tip: Put it on the Seder table under a bright light and watch the coloures dance!)
- Visit the scrapbooking section of your local dollar store for amazing decorations. You'll find gorgeous ribbon, tissue, stickers, flowers, butterflies, shells and more.
