Chalk-Paint Name Tags: A Chic Way to Personalize Party Wine Glasses

This easy DIY is perfect for someone who loves to host parties and small gatherings -- but hates that there are usually four times more used cups than there were people at the end of the party! Use Martha Stewart Chalk Paint to create these stylish labels for your glasses.

Supplies

Materials

-  Drinking glasses

-  Masking tape

Martha Stewart Chalk Paint

-  Paintbrush or sponge brush

Note: If you happen to smear the paint while it's drying, you can easily scratch it off the glass with a knife or sharpe edge, just be careful not to scratch the glass itself.
