Use the free SVG cut file to create these personalized wine glasses! Perfect for a wedding shower, bachelorette party, or wedding gift!
I’m back today with another DIY wedding craft for BugabooCity’s Wedding Week series! Today’s tutorial is for creating DIY wedding shower wine glasses, and I have a free SVG cut file to go with it! When it comes to party planning it’s all in the details. I love how simple, yet personal these wine glasses are. They are definitely something the bride can take home with her and use long after her shower is over.
The free SVG cut file is available at the end of this post. It features a pretty heart and arrow and room to add the bride and groom’s initials. I used the font Airplanes in the Night Sky by Kimberly Geswein. The letters have such sweet curls I thought the font was the perfect romantic touch for this design. I used a pink vinyl for one of the glasses pictured and gold adhesive foil for the other. I love the sheen the adhesive foil has and prefer it a little bit over the pink vinyl. Perhaps if the vinyl was a darker color, it would pop even more. You could choose a vinyl color to go with the wedding color palette, if you know it, or match the vinyl to the colors of the wedding shower.
If you saw yesterday’s wedding craft tutorial, you may have noticed I used this SVG cut file on the pencil glass for the Guess the Dress! wedding game. I needed something to hold all of my cute pink pencils for the wedding shower and thought this would be a nice personal touch for the bride. I found the glass at Target and was able to quickly put this together using my Cricut Explore.
These glasses would also be fun at a bachelorette party or as a wedding/shower gift paired with a favorite bottle of wine. Below is the tutorial and the free cut file! :)
Supplies Needed for DIY Wedding Shower Wine Glasses:
- Heart and Arrow SVG cut file – Link located at the end of this post.
- Glasses – I found mine at Target for $2 each!
- Cricut vinyl or adhesive foil
- Cricut Vinyl Transfer Tape (I used Cricut Stencil Material since I had it on hand, but I’d recommend using the Transfer Tape – it also has a grid and is clear)
- Cutting machine
- Cutting machine tools – mat, weeder, scraper
Step One: Download the free SVG cut file and upload it into Cricut Design Space – or whatever design program you use with your cutting machine. Then add the initials for the bride and groom. I used the font Airplanes in the Night Sky by Kimberly Geswein, but you could use a font already in Cricut Design Space.
I’ve also included the .jpeg of this design for download. If you want, you can add the initials in Photoshop, save it as a .jpeg again and then import it into your cutting machine design program and it will be ready to cut.
Size the image to fit the glass you will using. For my two wine glasses, my image was 2″ high. Then you are ready to cut and weed the images!
Step Two: To transfer the designs onto the glasses, I used Cricut Stencil Material but you would normally use Cricut Transfer Tape . Both the Cricut Stencil Material and Transfer Tape have worked well for me on past projects like my Harry Potter Directional Sign. I’m usually able to get several transfers out of each piece I use and they both come with a helpful grid. I always line my design up with the grid, which helps a lot when placing the design onto my project – in this case, onto the wine glasses.
Cut a piece of Transfer Tape a little larger than your design and apply it to the top of the design using the grid to place it on straight. Use the Cricut scraper to make sure the Transfer Tape is really stuck to the vinyl or foil image.
Step Three: Gently peel back the vinyl or foil paper, leaving the design on the Transfer Tape. If the design starts to peel up with the backing, just lay the backing back down and use the scraper to help it stick better before trying to peel it back up.
Step Four: Apply the design to the glasses. I tried positioning my design a little higher up on the glasses where they weren’t as curved. It was tricky to get the design to lay smooth because my glasses were so bulbous on the bottom. If your glasses are a little straighter, it will be easier. I just went slow and smoothed out any wrinkles before lifting up the Transfer Tape.
They are all finished! Yay! I love how simple and sleek these glasses look. The design is minimalist, fun, and can be personalized with the couple’s initials and created in whatever color you’d like! Give one of these to the bride to sip on for her wedding shower or bachelorette party, use them in a fun gift for the wedding couple or use them to hold cute pink pencils! :)
