DIY Wine Glasses for a Ducky Baby Shower

For an added touch of contrasting bright color that could also serve as a nice, personal shower favor, I created these glittery wine glasses stenciled with a duck silhouette.

These beauties are perfect to use in the duck baby shower place settings!

Inexpensive wine glasses can be found everywhere from dollar stores to discount home goods stores, and most craft stores will carry the glass paint and stencil film to make your own stencils as well. For an even more personalized look, you can also substitute a monogram for the duck on the glasses. It’s up to you!


Wine glasses

Duck outline template

Adhesive stencil film

Glitter glass paint

Masking tape


Step 1: Print the duck templates for the glasses. Cut out one individual duck in a box (with a bit of extra white space around the box) for every wine glass you intend to create. These will be the templates to make the stencils for each glass.

Step 2: Cut pieces of adhesive stencil film slightly larger than the template paper. Tape the stencil film adhesive side down to a cutting mat with masking tape. Tape the duck template over the stencil film. Using an x-acto knife, cut the duck shape out of the middle of the box.

Step 3: Cut the box out.

Step 4: Remove the backing from the square stencil and carefully adhere it to the glass where you want the duck to go. Be sure to make the top line parallel to the lip of the glass. Place the duck cut out in the center of the square.

Step 5: Pour a bit of the glass glitter paint into a bowl, then brush over the stencil. For full coverage, you’ll need 2-3 coats of paint, drying fully between coats.

Step 6: After the final coat is dry, carefully peel off the square stencil. Use your x-acto knife to lift the edge of the duck stencil from the surface of the glass. You’ll have to reference the directions on your particular bottle of glass paint, but anticipate several weeks for the paint to completely cure—although some brands will allow the paint to be cured in the oven in a day.
