Trendy Southwest Inspired Martini Glasses

This months DecoArt project is one that will get you ready for entertaining your girlfriends on your back patio with a drink or two, and will take your current barware up a notch by introducing one of the hottest trends in home decor this season.

Southwest and Santa Fe colours, patterns and style are dominating home decor and fashion right now. I aboslutely love both the pastel and the bold variations of these trends, so when I saw an opportunity to add this trend into our barware I jumped at the chance.

After spending a bit of time on Pinterest for some visual reference in Southwest patterns, I free-handed the design on a piece of paper towel to make sure that I would be happy with how it would translate on the glass. Once I was confident in my design, I went to town mixing up the color combinations for the three different glasses.

One thing that I love about these colours is that you can pair them in so many ways, each glass being unique and different, but that since you've used all of the same colours the glasses coordinate with one another.



After I was finished painting, I put the glasses on the counter to cure over the next four days. When the four days were up, I baked them in a nonpreheated oven at 275 for 30mins, then let cool on the counter. They're now dishwasher safe, and are ready for some summery drinks!
