Other Supplies

Stemless wine glass set, Rubbing alcohol, Craft knife, Wax paper, Paper towels, Paper plates, Water basin


  1. Wash all glasses with warm soapy water. Dry and wipe with rubbing alcohol to remove any leftover residue.
  2. On two of the glasses, tape off approximately one third from the bottom. On the third glass, apply tape around the lip of the glass lining up the edge of the tape with the edge of the lip.
  3. Apply Flame to the two glasses taped off on the lower part of the glass. Use the foam pouncer and apply a light coat first, let dry then keep applying coats until the paint is even. After the last coat, score along the tape edge with craft knife before removing tape to prevent any paint from pulling up.
  4. Center the Happy Halloween stencil on one glass between the top edge of the glass and the painted bottom. Tape around the stencil to prevent any paint getting outside the stencil. Lay the bone border stencil around the other glass with the painted bottom lining the bottom edge of the stencil along the top edge of the paint.
  5. Apply Beetle Black to both stencils using dauber. Remove stencils. Continue the bone border around the entire glass.
    • Tip: Place wax paper over previous stenciled areas to prevent the stickiness of the adhesive stencil from pulling up paint before it is completely cured.
  6. Place flying witch to the left of the Happy Halloween and stencil with Beetle Black.
  7. Line up stem from pumpkin stencil with bottom edge of tape on third glass and stencil with Flame. Repeat pumpkin element in an offset pattern around the glass as shown. Let pumpkins dry completely. Lightly place face element of pumpkin over each pumpkin on glass and apply Beetle Black.
  8. Clean up any bleed around elements with craft knife.
  9. Let all paint cure completely before use. Refer to paint bottle for cure times and directions.
