DIY Small Glass Candy Place Card, TUTORIAL On a small glass cup, spell out a name with stickers. Tape around the top and bottom edge of the glass with painter's or masking tape. Using a pouncer brush, dab acrylic paint lightly over the letters to coat the area between the tape. Once dry, apply a second coat. Let dry, then peel off the letters and tape. Fill the cup with colorful candies and a lollipop for a sweet treat.
