There is only a week left until Halloween. If you are planning a party then you should be finalizing your plans, and getting all your decorations in order. One thing many party planners often time over look are the glasses that will be used by your guests.

It is easier to manage and clean up, but if you are going for a glass that will have your guest talking then you have to make these DIY Halloween Wine Glasses. Stacy from StacyMolter.com created this adorable project. She used Martha Stewart glass paints and stencils to create this project. Make your upcoming Halloween party standout by decorating some wine glasses. Learn step by step how to make these here.
