Cute Wine Glass Owl Craft - With Video

Did the coronavirus cancel your best friend’s bachelorette party? We’re here to help! The Between the Pine team has created this complete guide to help you celebrate the bride from afar.

We know the coronavirus has derailed your plans for a bachelorette party, but we hope that this blog can help you think of an alternative way to still have a bachelorette party amidst the coronavirus breakout.

We’re here to help you make the most of social distancing and quarantining, Hannah Brown and Tyler down in Florida! So, grab your party-planning-notebook, and let’s plan your coronavirus bachelorette party!

Due to the effects of coronavirus, Between the Pine recommends all to adhere to CDC regulations and guidelines put in place by local and national governments. Between the Pine strongly encourages everyone to make decisions about events and travel that are in the interest of their personal and the public’s health and wellbeing.

You are ly sad that your original bachelorette party plans had to be cancelled because of coronavirus, but I want you to imagine a new way to party with the bachelorette. Picture this! 

You’ve gotten all dolled up while listening to the best girl-power playlist. Then, you grab your phone, lipstick, Team Bride button and your favorite wine glass.

You sit down at your kitchen table, pull up the invite to the party, click the link and boom! You are instantly at the best virtual bachelorette party, complete with happy hour, a movie night and some much-needed social interaction! 

Welcome to Between the Pine’s version of a coronavirus bachelorette party! Coronavirus has caused a lot of things to be cancelled.

But, celebrating the bride-to-be should not be one of them! Now, planning and pulling off a virtual bachelorette party will take some planning, but you do not need to stress! I am here to help you with everything you need to know to execute the best bachelorette party during the coronavirus outbreak. And, I’m even giving you a free itinerary for you to download to make your bachelorette party planning even easier. So, scroll on!

Step 1: Make an evite for the virtual bachelorette party

Now, we all know that this wasn’t Plan A for the bachelorette party, so it’s your job as the best-friend-extraordinair to make this virtual coronavirus bachelorette party just as special as the initial plan. One way you could do that is by sending out an online invitation.

In the invitation, you can include any web links ( to the video conferencing link) and the bride’s shipping address for people to send gifts directly to her.

Paperless Post is one of my favorite online invitation companies, and they even have an entire page for virtual party invitations!

Step 2: Plan the itinerary

In order to make this virtual bachelorette party the talk of the town, I recommend having an itinerary in mind! A game plan for the night will make the entire virtual bachelorette party feel a cohesive, thought-out event. So, to help you with your itinerary planning, here are some options our team thought up:

Leave it to the professional party planning committee

You don’t have to tackle this entire virtual-party-planning thing on your own! There are some amazing companies that offer private, online workshops that would be a blast to do for a bachelorette party (or, even anytime during the coronavirus quarrentine).

One of my favorite companies is Ink & Root. They offer workshops for calligraphy, indigo dye and even kokedama balls (which are super cool hanging plants!).

You can click the link below to reach out to the Ink & Root team about a private, online workshop for your virtual bachelorette party.

Plan your own party agenda

Or, you can absolutely pull off an amazing bachelorette party during coronavirus, D-I-Y-style. When you’re planning the virtual bachelorette party, here are some fun things you could include in your itinerary:

Be sure to share the plan with all those attending so they know to have dinner and drinks ready to participate with the group! Keep reading for more tips for making dinner and happy hour a virtual blast!

  • Play the classic bachelorette games
  • Have the bride open gifts

Again, be sure that everyone attending knows about this in advance so they can mail their gift to the bride in time for the party. Keep in mind that most companies will ly have extended shipping periods due to the coronavirus.

Want some help planning the virtual bachelorette party? We’re here for you!

Drop your name and email address below to download our free coronavirus bachelorette party itinerary.

Step 3: Get supplies and decorations to send to the bride

Coronavirus can’t cancel going all-out to celebrate the bride! A fun way to make the night special is to dec-out the bride with the classic bachelorette party decorations. You could ship them directly to her address, or bundle them all up in one box to send her way. These are all fun things to send to the bride:

And, don’t forget about the bridal party! These are fun things to send to the rest of the group to make the party feel less socially distanced:

  • Team Bride buttons
  • Bride’s crew cups

Step 4: Make it happen

You’re going to pull off the best virtual bachelorette party in coronavirus quarantine history! And, you will make the bride feel so loved and celebrated, I just know it! Here are some final tips to make sure your party goes off without a glitch (technology pun intended, lol): 

  • Test the video conference link to make sure the video quality is great. 
  • If there are surprises happening throughout the party, make sure you have a group chat without the bride in it.

Dress to the nines for the virtual bachelorette party

Let’s be real, we’re all looking for an excuse to change our pajamas these days! Have all of the bridesmaids dress up in their favorite black, night-on-the-town outfit and have your bride doll up in her favorite dress. Then, you could have everyone change into their pajamas for a spa or movie night.

Make the dinner and drinks follow a theme

Fiesta, anyone? You can create a signature margarita recipe and have everyone eat Mexican food together.

Or, you could even utilize the knowledge of an events company, Ink and Root’s sister company Feast, to have virtual wine-pairing training for the gals.

No matter the route you go with the food for the night, go above and beyond and have food delivered to the bride as a surprise by using delivery services these:

Send the bachelorette the perfect gift

Want to make your bachelorette gift go above and beyond for the bride? Include a face mask, candle, scrunchie, lingerie and the bride’s go-to candy.

Make a fun playlist with the bride’s favorite music

Now, listening to a playlist could get tricky over a virtual video call, but you could send the link out to the playlist with the evite or in the group message. So, girls are able to dance nobody’s watching as they get ready for the evening.

Everyone writes a handwritten card to the bride

Is anyone else’s love language words of affirmation? There is nothing better than receiving a handwritten card from someone.

A handwritten card shows that you sat down, took intentional time to think about the bride-to-be and wrote out encouragement to them. Don’t underestimate the power of a handwritten card.

Click here to shop some fun Between the Pine post cards that will brighten any day!

Who else is ready to blast some Whitney Houston through the speakers and make this bachelorette party happen? You can totally pull off an incredible bachelorette party during the coronavirus outbreak. So, go ahead and send this link to your best friend, Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor, sister or whoever you need to let know about this new bachelorette party plan and let’s make it happen!

Cute Wine Glass Owl Craft

Cute Wine Glass Owl Craft - With Video

This colorful upcycled wine glass owl is a cute and simple way to add decorations to your home. It’s such a cute addition to your springtime decor! I love painting glasses because you can turn something ordinary into an absolutely stunning decoration in just a few minutes! This can be personalized with your favorite colors and turn into something unique for your home.

Upcycled Wine Glass Owl

I absolutely love painting glasses. It’s a fun little craft that is inexpensive, easy and has so many options. I started painting glasses back when I was just 11 or 12 years old, and it has been a favorite pastime ever since. My favorites are using them to create for birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays. This little owl is great for all three, and even more!

If you are an owl lover I am, then you will love making your own unique painted wine glass craft. Feel free to get creative with colors and design to really make this unique and match your personality and decor. You can use buttons, feathers, beads, and more to really dress this up!

Where Can I Get Feathers for Crafting?

I am asked frequently about where I get the feathers I use in crafting. Many people are not just curious, but concerned about the ethical treatment of animals when sourcing feathers.

Most companies now source feathers for crafting only from those that fall off naturally from birds.

While the birds themselves may be raised for this purpose, you can be assured nobody is just plucking feathers from birds needlessly to supply your crafting habits.

My favorite feathers are those from Coreca chicken feathers, and also I really the variety in these colorful feathers.

Tips for Painting a Wine Glass

While you are not painting the owl on the wine glass, you might want to paint the glass itself. When choosing the paint for the wine glass, there are a few types of paint that will work well.

  • Spray paint (my favorite)
  • Acrylic enamel
  • Craft paints – including acrylic and tempera paint
  • Acrylic paint that is marked for tile or glass
  • Specially formulated solvent paint designed for glass.

The paint will need to dry before you can move on to the next step. When painting this as just a fun craft, you can just set it aside to dry for an hour (or less depending upon the paint), then move on to the next step.

While this craft is not one you will be using later for drinking, etc., it is worth mentioning that there are different rules for painting glass you need to wash and use for food.

If you are painting the glass and plan to be able to run it through the dishwasher, you will follow a different method. A painted glass will need to dry for up to 21 days to cure the paint so it stays on the glass when washed. The other option is to paint and then bake the glasses for 30 minutes at 350°F. This, of course, should only be done with oven-safe glass.

How Can This Be Displayed?

This owl glass can be displayed in the kitchen to complement other owl décor or used on a shelf as part of everyday knick-knacks. You can add it to any shelf or table centerpiece during special holidays, birthday parties, or just because.

I seeing it sit inside my glass cabinet above my desk where I store a few special collectible items. It just fits in nicely with the theme. You can also add it to a mantle with other owl decorations, or on a high shelf in a kid’s room that has an owl theme.

Ultimately, I use it most often as a candleholder! Just place a votive or a tealight on top and light for soft light in a room. You can, of course, use the LED tealight candles that only require batteries and are safe to use around children and flammable items.

How to Make a Wine Glass Owl Craft

Start by spraying the glass orange and setting aside to dry. For spray paint, this usually dries within 30 minutes.

While the paint is drying, you will cut out an oval that is the length of the glass on the blue paper.

Next, you will cut out two connected circles (an 8 shape) and 2 small “feet” shaped pieces from the yellow paper.

You will also want to cut out a small orange triangle shape from the orange paper to create the beak.

Now, when the paint is dry, you will glue the blue oval onto the glass to make the owl body.

Glue the yellow figure 8 shape onto the top of the blue body, nearest the stem (the glass will sit upside down to display).

Add googly eyes to the yellow eye shape.

Now, attach the feet to the bottom of the yellow body.

Glue the beak just below the eyes.

Use the black marker to draw squiggly lines across the body to resemble rows of feathers.

Glue the feathers around the stem of the glass.

Now you have a cute owl made a wine glass!

If you have more wine glasses and want to make even more fun projects with them, I have tons of ideas! This rustic candle holder from a wine glass is my favorite, but of course, I have plenty for all the holidays too! A fun wine glass bunny, wine glass chick, wine glass pumpkins, Christmas candle holders from wine glasses . You can even make this simple wine glass lantern candle holder if you want!

I find there are many more sustainable and eco-friendly or cruelty-free options on Etsy for colorful feathers. Definitely check out the small chops there instead of the big retailers!

Because there's no better time for a good laugh than during bad times.

We want to help – so to start your day with a smile, we're going to post five funny viral videos and memes every morning. Because there's no better time for a good laugh than during bad times, and we believe in starting the day on the right foot even when things feel they're all going wrong.

Enjoy – then be safe, be smart and be healthy. We're in this together.

1. Smooth moves

TikTok is the home of millions upon millions of dancing videos – but this is the only one that matters.

Bad news, everyone: This is how this dance is done now. The old steps have been thrown out; this is the new Cha-Cha Slide.

2. The Never-ending Dance

ESPN's “The Last Dance” may have come to a close on Sunday night, but the doc series still lives on thanks to the handle, Michael Jordan Jamming Out – which is just the same 11 second clip of Jordan rocking out on the team bus to different songs. And somehow, I can't stop watching them.

Michael Jordan co-produced a ten-part documentary series about how great and competitive he was, and now its legacy is going to be him dancing to bad pop songs.

3. Plans, meet 2020

Sorry, Dancing MJ, but the real meme of the week thus far has been “My Plans//2020,” in which you post a photo of something – probably from a movie or TV show – looking young and happy and full of hope, followed by the thing that will destroy that youth and joy. Bleak? Absolutely. Blessed and perfect? Also absolutely.

It's never not satisfying. And on the bright side for this guy, even though the pyramid is destroyed, he's always prepared for a game of flip cup or beer pong.

5. But what of I.P. Freely?

Here's something uplifting for today: I'm glad to see that, even in changing times, even in uncertain days, kids still prank authority figures – even those as high as the governor of Mississippi – with goofy fake names.

The governor of Mississippi just read a list of 2020 HS graduates during virtual-graduation and someone slipped-in the name “Harry Azcrac” on him…
