Unique shot glass holder

While at the local glass outlet, I came across some very unique shot glasses and thought they would make a pretty nifty project.  I used one of the wooden blocks I got at the thrift shop, some puffy paint and some spray paint.

Drill holes at an angle in the top of the block so the shot glasses fit neatly into them.  Make the holes deep enough to hold them securely, but not so far as to detract from their unique shape.  I used three shot glasses, but you could do this for as many as you like, depending on the size of your wood block. Or make several for a really unique display!

Next, I wanted to add some texture and interest to the block, so I made designs on the corners with puffy paint.  Follow the manufacture’s directions.  The kind I used called for it to dry over night and then use a steam iron to activate the paint.  I used the puffy paint because I had it in my stash of supplies, but you could use any type of  textured scrap book items, stickers, or even shape thick wire and glue it on.

experience point:  shake the paint bottle often, to keep the paint at the tip.  If you make a mistake or a fuzzy feline sticks their tail in it, not to worry, you can reshape it with a small wooden pick or paint brush. While wet, the paint will wash out with water.

Once the texture paint is dry, spray paint in the color of your choice.  I chose to go with a chrome.

The next thing I did was google search ‘words in other languages that mean Cheers’

I picked my favorites and added them to each side of the cube with scrap book alphabet stickers. You could paint the words or use any type of décor you choose.

I deliberately did the cube in neutrals so you can add some decorative pieces to the top or around the bottom and make it fit right in to any table scape.

Imagine the possibilities of colors, decorations and more you can choose for your own unique shot glass set!  This would be really cute for New Year’s Eve decorated with confetti and streamers! How about decorating with pink, use miniatures in a theme for a special girl’s night!

I hope you will send me pictures of any of your own creations!

Cheers, Salud, Prost, L’Chaim!
