Tennis Theme Vinyl Decorated Stemless Wine Glasses

Wine glasses with Oracal 651 vinyl designs

I posted a couple of these glasses on Instagram a while ago.  I had made them to thank our tennis captains at the end of our winter season.  This weekend we had a fundraiser tournament and I was asked to create a set of four tennis related wine glasses for a wine basket that was being auctioned off.  I used a Silhouette Cameo 3 to make these but you don’t have to have a Cameo to cut vinyl.  You can use whatever dies and punches (yes, punches!) you have.  Butterflies and letter dies would make great glass designs.My husband bought me the Silhouette Cameo 3 Bluetooth Bundle with Oracal 651 Vinyl, Tools, Pixscan, and More for Mother’s Day last year.  Mine is white but there are other colors of Cameo 3 available and a bunch of them are on sale right now.  My bundle came with the Oracal 651 Vinyl 12 x 12 – 12 Assorted Colors Pack #2.  We moved shortly after that so it took me a while to get the cameo out of the box but once I did and I tried the vinyl, I was hooked!  I made initials for my travel shampoo and conditioner containers, personalized two water bottles, cut butterflies for luggage tags, etc, etc.  Then I saw someone had done glasses and thought they would be great as captain’s gifts.  The glasses I used are Luminarc brand, are nice weight, and came in a box of 4 at a cost of about $1 per glass.  I bought them at my local Target.

I used the vinyl that came with my Cameo bundle for the words.  I had bought the Styletech 12×12 Self Adhesive Glitter Vinyl Sheets19 Pack from Amazon some time after so I used that for the tennis balls.  This glitter is pretty transparent, which is good for some uses, but I’m going to try the Glitter Glossy Permanent Vinyl – 25 Sheet Bundle from Swing Design since it got even better reviews than the one from Amazon.  Glitter vinyl is a little tougher to cut but I really didn’t have much trouble with it.

Two of my fonts are from a font bundle I purchased at a huge discount from SoFontsy when it was on sale: Mermaid Tails and Oaker.  I also used two other fonts: Freestyle Script and Blenda Script.  The tennis balls are from a cut file I bought from the Silhouette Design Store but you could easily import clipart instead.  Single image cut files are often less than $1 which I think is a great price for the time savings.

I hope you give vinyl a try.  It’s really easy and Oracal 651 Vinyl is really durable, though you do need to wash your creations by hand.
