How in the world did you get the glitter and decorations stick so well to the glass? I know you sanded them, but it still looks like they would drop off so easily. You make this craft look like a piece of cake. My favorite part is that you got the glasses from the thrift store, so the materials did not cost you a ton.

These are cool looking, they would be a great project to try with the kids. I think my niece and nephew would enjoy making these and then using a straw and for Christmas day dinner having their special glasses and straw to drink from at Christmas never know they might even be convinced to eat their brussel sprouts as well)

For decorating it is fine, but sure wouldn't want to drink out of them, and get glitter in the mouth.

Probably a good idea. I think they are best used as decoration only. - Editor of AllFreeChristmasCrafts
