Bridal-Rita Tutorial!

I recently went to a bridal shower for a friend that was actually a lingerie shower. You are supposed to buy the bride-to-be  lingerie for when she's on her honeymoon. I, course, couldn't settle for just buying her something. I had to make her something. But what?

When I was in college, I was in a sorority and we had this tradition of decorate glassware (mostly martini and margarita glasses) for each other for special occassions.

Here is the first one I made when I first joined back in 2008.

It was one of our first "sisterhood"activities. We made glasses and exchaged them. It was super fun.

ANYWAY. Flash forward a few years. I thought, why not carry on this tradition? So. I decided to create her a lingerie shower glass.

I turned this 

Into this:

 Here's What You Need:
-Margarita Glass
- Thick white ribbon
-Blue Ribbon (slightly thinner than your white one).
-Hot Glue
-Glass friendly Paint Pen

First, sew your ribbons together so that you can gather them. This will the ribbons look like a garter, for a heck of a lot less dinero. Like so:

Next, trim your ribbons so that they fit exactly around the bottom curve of your margarite glass. Glue it on. Then make a small bow out of the blue ribbon and attach it to the front center of your glass.

Gather your tulle so that it resembles a vail.

Glue the tulle to the back of your glass,cover the glue with rhinestones on the outside and on the inside.

Lastly, I wrote "Mrs. Rosner" on the front and the bottom I wrote their wedding date.

Excuse the messy table!

The bride and her gift!

And viola! You have your very own customized bride-a-rita glass!

This glass is super easy to customize too. Use different colors, frillier ribbon, lace etc. Go for it! Do whatever floats your boat!
