4th of July crafts
These 4th of July wine glasses take minutes to make (seriously), and add just a bit of red, white, and blue awesome to your 4th of July party.
4th of July wine glasses
All you need to make these 4th of July wine glasses with fireworks is some wine glasses and some oil-based paint markers. They are so easy to make, and the guests drinking wine (or soda or gin and tonic or whatever) will be awed that you went through so much “work” for your 4th of July party.

how to paint wine glasses
I first posted how to paint wine glasses here (and I included a roundup of painted wine glasses from around the web). These glasses are even easier because they only use oil-based Sharpie paint markers, the same markers I used to make this unicorn mug.
you will need:
- rubbing alcohol
- oil-based Sharpie paint markers (I used this fine-line set)
- wine glasses
what to do:
Clean the glasses with rubbing alcohol first and let dry. Draw your design. I started with the white marker because it is the lightest, just in case I accidentally picked up some of the paint with the other markers. After drawing your design, let the glasses dry overnight. To make the glasses dishwasher safe, place them in a cold oven and turn the oven to 350 degrees F. Cook for 30 minutes, turn off the oven and open the door to let it cool. For the record, even though the glasses should be dishwasher safe (top shelf), I find I still handwash them just to be on the safe side.
how to draw fireworks
To draw the fireworks on the wine glasses, I simply drew arcs and straight lines and a few dots.
For these fireworks, draw a series of arced lines pointing to an invisible center “circle.” The lines at the top of the fireworks are smaller than the bottom.
For the other fireworks, draw straight lines of various lengths pointing to an invisible center “circle.” Add a few dots.
