Pair your favorite songs with your favorite wine with these simple Song Lyric Etched Wine Glasses. Great for girls nights, listening parties, hostess gifts and more!
On hot summer nights I like to open up the windows, pull out my favorite vinyl and drink a cold glass of wine. I invite the gal pals over for some great conversation and noshing and well… we call those nights “Vinyl and Wine” nights. There is just something about the evening and flavors that really bring out the experience. And as you guys know… I am all about the sensory experience and flavor is probably at the top of my list.
Thanks Notable Wines for giving me the perfect excuse to host a great Vinyl and Wine night with my gal pals to talk sound and flavor senses. I teamed up with them today to make these pretty classy (if I do say so myself) lyric etched wine glasses inspired my their two varietals of Chardonnay that highlight the flavor right on the bottle!
For this get together, we had the Oaky and Buttery (California) Chardonnay and the Fruity and Crisp (Australia) Chardonnay. My favorite thing to do was pair each wine with a song or lyric that hightlighted the flavors so for the Oaky and Buttery Chardonnay, I chose a more full bodied, deeper song and for the Fruity and Crisp, I chose a song that is a little bit lighter and acoustic.
Song Lyric Etched Wine Glasses
Stencil tape or adhesive vinyl
Pencil and craft knife
To begin, clean your wine glasses off with rubbing alcohol. That will make sure you have a clean surface to start with.
Cut out your lyrics. If you’re super fancy and have a cricut, you can simply load the template into the design space and set the size – 3×2″.
If you want to do your own lyrics you can choose your font in the program and go to town! Mine turned out a little smudgy… but I think the quotes were a little long.
Adhere the lyric cut outs to your wine glasses. If you’re using larger quotes there will be some bubbles in the vinyl. That’s fine. Just use your nail to squidge it down so that the edges are sealed in.
Put on your latex or rubber glove and begin to paint on the etching cream in globs. Just dab it on there. Once it’s all on there, let it sit for 3-5 minutes. I found that for these glasses, 5 minutes was better.
Once it has set, simply wash the etching cream off in the kitchen sink. Peel the stencil away and rinse some more until everything is off of the glass.
Voila! Pour a glass of either Oaky and Buttery or Fruity and Crisp Notable Wines’ Chardonnay and pair with your favorite music. What songs will your pair it with at your next “Vinyl and Wine” night?
