They were easier to make than I envisioned and hardly took any time at all. After reading several tutorials, I finally settled on this one from Always Order Dessert. What I liked about this one, was that she used chalkboard spray paint rather than dipping the glasses into paint as mentioned on other tutorials (that just seemed messy). The only thing I did not see mentioned on her tutorial is the last step....prepping the chalkboard for use by rubbing the entire surface with the side of a piece of chalk. Wipe this off and then you are ready to go.

The glasses are hand-wash only and really make a neat gift for winelovers. Several people have mentioned that they have seen similar products available online for $20 a glass! Crazy, huh? I bought Libbey glasses at Garden Ridge for $2/each and the RustOleum spray paint was around $5 at Home Depot. I already had the blue painter's tape (what crafter doesn't?). Whether you make them for yourself or as a gift...enjoy!
