Solo cup picnic wine glasses—conversation starter?




You don’t want to take your fancy wine glasses outside to a picnic or out on the deck, so what happens-- you are stuck using those big plastic cups, right?  Wrong!  Just hit the thrift shop or craft store and grab a couple of inexpensive glass candle holders and some E6000 glue and you can create some unique Picnic wine glasses, which double as a great conversation starter!!

You will need:

Large plastic cups

Glass or plastic candleholder for each wine glass

E6000 glue

1.     Run a bead of E6000 glue around the top rim of the candleholder.  Center the bottom of the plastic cup on the prepared candleholder. 







2.     Let it dry for at least 24 hours and you are all set.  Enjoy.


(You can also use this technique with a mason jar)

Note:  You must use E6000 glue.  You can find it in craft stores, and discount dept. stores.  I received no remuneration for recommending this glue; it is quite simply the only one that works.  I recommend hand washing.

I'm so excited...Kathy at southernmadeintheshade.blogspot.com featured both my blogs-- Featured post.  Be sure to check out her cool blog!

  1. These are hilarious! And you're so right about the E6000, it is absolutely the only thing I've found that works on glass.

  6. What a cute idea with the Solo cup.

    I've tried this with Mason jars, but unfortunately, they came apart fairly easy. I am still on the hunt for a good glass to glass glue!

  24. I made some of these after doing some online research and used the E-6000 as suggested. It chewed right through the cup. :(

    1. I am stumped as to why they would have chewed through the cup. I made a set months ago and they are still in perfect condition. I know that some glues will chew through styrofoam. Perhaps it's the brand of cups...mine was a generic red cup from the grocery store.
