The Oscars are all about celebrating the best of film, whether it is the actors, the music, the directors, the screenplay writers or the cinematography – this is an evening of toasting the best of the best! Join in on the festivities by serving champagne in stylish glasses that have been dressed in a tuxedo. This DIY is so simple and easy to do and takes no time at all. Your guests will get such a kick out of these glammed up glasses. Here’s what you’ll need:
Black felt, a standard 8×10 sheet that can be found at any craft store is enough for 6 champagne glasses/flutes
Black Adhesive Gems found here
Glue Dots found here
A glue gun that can be found at any craft store
A pair of scissors
Plug in the glue gun. Cut a 3.5″ x 2,5″ rectangle of black felt and a 3″ x 1/4″ strip of black felt. Pinch the rectangle in the middle and wrap the strip around where you have pinched it. Using the glue gun, apply glue to the black of the strip to seal it around the rectangle. Cut off excess. Once the glue on the bow tie has cooled, push the back of the bow tie onto a glue dot (so the glue dot comes off and sticks to the felt) and then push the bow tie onto the champagne glass. I like to put the bow tie about 1/2″ below the rim of the glass. Once the bow tie has been attached to the glass, peel off the adhesive gems, these are the tuxedo buttons. Place three “tuxedo buttons” down the front of the glass directly beneath the bow tie.
