There's nothing the kids like more than their own glass that they can use throughout the Christmas season,

so we created this fabulous glass using coloured appliglues and transfer foils - so simple and such fun!

And, it's washable! 

 Firstly choose a template - try using a design from Christmas paper, a magazine or a card. If it fits into the inside of the glass so much the better. Use blu tack or the like to keep it in place.

  Simply draw on the outside of the design following the the pattern inside with the Appliglue!  Remember to put on your apron!

We selected green and purple Appliglues to create our designs. 

 Make sure that you hold the glass carefully as it gets turned round, so that you don't smudge the initial work of art!  

Or, do them one at a time and wait for them to dry. 

 Then choose the colours to complement the design - select from over 50 appliglue colours and around 25 foils

 

and colour the inside of the outlined work with another or the same colour of Appliglue. .

When the Appliglue was almost dry, we applied the transfer foil shiny side up, used a hairdryer to make sure it was absolutely dry, rubbed it gently with a cloth and then pulled off the foil.  The image was immediately transformed!

Using clear Appliglue we popped on the sequin for the star!
