A DIY Egg nog giftset? Everyone needs one, don’t you think?? Well, I do. So…I headed over to my thrift store and picked up some glasses (they actually don’t even match, but are close) and a flask. I chose simple glasses and a simple flask, so you can actually buy those new and get something pretty similar if you want. And this way, the painting stands out more!
I used some paint and stencils from Martha Stewart Paints to make this look all vintage and dorky. I like Martha Stewart glass paint, I just think it works better. You can find it at most craft stores. Another paint would work too, just get something that is supposed to work on glass.
Isn’t this eggnog giftset great!
If you want to get a lovely vintagey, dorky Egg Nog giftset all your own (or to give as a gift) here’s what you need to do.
1. Find yourself some glasses that seem “vintagey”. We also really love this set.
2. Find yourself a bottle, flask, pitcher…whatever. Something for the egg nog. This glass flask on Amazon is pretty similar to the one I found.
—I would recommend looking at your local thrift store for these. Or garage sales. Or free boxes. And, if they don’t match perfectly…that’s okay.
3. use some vinegar or alcohol to clean the glass if you are getting it used. Dry well.
(tip. to put a new cork into an old bottle I used a vegetable peeler to cut the bottom of the cork down enough to fit it.)
Look at your crazy cool Eggnog Gift set and be proud that you made it. Cause it’s so stinking cool you just can’t stand it!
go rule the world!
