DIY Fangtasia Shot Glasses

We previously told you about the blood rimmed glasses that our guest received last year in their party favors. To add to their True Blood collection, each guest will be getting a Fangtasia shot glass this year.

We made this using plain shot glasses bought at Walmart for around $4 per set of 6.  We got 5 sheets of White Inkjet Waterslide Decal Paper on Ebay for about $7.  You will also need some Krylon Acrylic High Gloss Spray.

Step #1: Design your decals using any graphic software program. (Use 8 1/2 " x 11" sheet  INK JET Decal Paper or cut sheet into half if desired

Step #2: Set your printer as follows: 
Resolution = BestPaper = Photo Gloss, (Print your decal on the glossy side of Decal Paper.)

Step #3: Spray your printed sheet evenly with Krylon Acrylic Crystal Clear High Gloss spray until the sheet has a shine (2-3 coats). Allow 30 to 60 minutes to dry and set. (This product is available at any craft or hardware store such as Loews, Home Depot, Ace Hardware, Walmart, etc. Any acrylic clear coat spray will work.) 

Step #4: Cut out your image using a standard pair of sharp household scissors.

Step #5: Place decal into a cup of clean water for 45-60 seconds and remove when the thin decal film begins to slip along backing. (Discard backing material after the decal has been removed) 

Step #6: Apply decal to clean surface; ceramic, glass, metal, plastic, soap, candles, mylar balloons, model trains, planes, cars, etc.

Since we had some extra decal paper we made a few martini glasses to give away as game prizes too.

These will be a favorite at your party because everyone will have their True Blood Sunday glass to have a nice bloody drink while watching the show each week!
