Hosting My First DIY Workshop


Hey guys so I am super excited to write this blog, about a month ago I did my first DIY workshop. My apartment complex usually has random workshops for the residence and the property manager, Taylor asked me if I would like to host a DIY night. Naturally of course I jumped right on board, the hardest part was deciding which workshop to do.
 I didn't want to pick anything that was too difficult but also nothing that's too elementary for the residents. After racking my brain for a good week and a half I decided why not do handpainted customized wine glasses. 
I already know I really wanted to do the large stemless wine glasses, the next part was to decide if we wanted to do glass or the durable hard plastic. 
Here's the thing :
1) if you choose glass you're able to set the paint in an oven that way it's dishwasher safe BUT if it breaks . . . You're up a creek without a shovel
2)if you choose the durable plastic it's not guaranteed dishwasher safe for the paint, however it's shatter proof and you can take it by the pool

I eventually decided on the durable plastic, and sought out dishwasher safe paint. After running a few painted ones through the dishwasher, the paint passed the test and totally dishwasher safe!
 I was worried about little or a few turn out for the event but we had about 20 people show up. Everyone had so much fun and I never knew we had so many talented people in my apartment complex! I'm definitely ready for my future DIY workshops!
