Looking for a way to add a little green to your tablescape in honor of St. Patrick’s day? With DecoArt’s new Glass Paint Markers (now available at Michaels), it’s easy to add some festive pizazz to a set of plain glasses.

I thought this little beer tasting paddle and glass set lent itself well to doubling as a votive holder centerpiece for St. Patrick’s Day. But, it needed a little green!

I used a green DecoArt glass marker to hand-draw shamrocks onto the glass. To get your glass paint marker going, shake well then press down tip until color appears.

I love that this marker creates an opaque finish, so the shamrocks are bright and bold on the clear glass. Once the green dried, I went over the pattern with another DecoArt glass marker in metallic gold. 

Note: for best results, after you’re finished, you’ll want to bake your glass at 375 degrees for 40 minutes in a non-preheated oven. Then allow to cool with the oven door open.

You see, I painted a different number of shamrocks on each glass to make it easy to keep track of the tasting. Fun, right?
