Hi again, 36th Avenue readers! Jill from Create.Craft.Love here!

I’m happy to be back sharing a quick and easy 4th of July craft!

Do you remember using the pointillism technique in art class?

It was one of my favorite projects! As a matter of fact, we started using pointillism when coloring in our coloring books.

These Patriotic Star Glasses are inspired by that very technique and they are the perfect addition to YOUR 4th of July cookout!

Wanna make your own Patriotic Star Glasses?

Here’s what you need:

Glass paint markers

Glass tumblers

Adhesive vinyl


These are super easy to make! First, create a star stencil with your adhesive vinyl.

{You do NOT need a die cutting machine to do this! But I’m lazy and used mine. hee hee}

Apply your vinyl to the glass tumbler.

The point of the star should be about 3/4 inches from the top edge of the glass.

Using your glass paint markers, begin making dots inside the star.

Keep applying until all of the colors have been used and the star is filled.

Allow about 30 minutes for the glass paint to dry.

Remove the vinyl stencil.

To cure the glasses, place them in a cold oven. Turn on the oven and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.

When time is up, turn off the oven and leave the door ajar while the glasses cool. That should make them safe to wash!

I am swooning over these glasses! I cannot wait to use them at our 4th of July cookout!
