Who doesn’t love a good old fashion ice cream sundae on a hot Summer night? I’m willing to bet 99% of my annual ice cream consumption takes place between July and August…this may or may not be a problem 😉 At any rate, I love nothing more than enjoying a giant scoop of ice cream served up in a TRUE old fashion sundae dish. These old fashion sundae dishes can be found at just about any thrift shop for next to nothing, they may just require a little spruce up, which is exactly what we did with these DIY Confetti Sundae Cups!
DIY Confetti Sundae Cups: Tutorial
- a pair of glass sundae dishes
- Deco Art 3D Gloss Enamel Transparent Glass Writer paints (available at Michael’s)
- Deco Art Glass Paint Makers (available at Michael’s)
Start out with a couple of glass sundae dishes, like this one…
After you clean your glasses, select a few colors of Deco Art’s glass paints. We used white, turquoise, green, pink and yellow. Some of the paints were 3D glass writer paints and some were glass paint markers. The 3D paints give off a heavier coverage on the glass, while the glass markers are more transparent…
Next, begin adding tiny confetti dots all over the outside of the glass. Add only one color at a time, this way you can go back and add other transparent colors on top of the dots.
Once you’ve finished adding the dots, allow the glasses to dry for 48 hours, then bake them for 30 minutes at 200 degrees to cure the paint.
Then, allow yourself to indulge!
