I was happily celebrating my birthday last weekend in Portland, ME with Rose and I blinked and this week is already over! To be completely honest I’m not someone that really looks forward to the big v-day. Even when I was dating someone I never was super thrilled about the holiday. Glittery XO Wine Stoppers | Popcorn and ChocolateDon’t get me wrong, I love love love all the pink and hearts that are everywhere, just the actual day is a little cringe-worthy. I much rather celebrate by throwing a big Galentine’s day party with friends and eat sweets and drink wine and make some crafts, but tbh, I would always rather being doing that. DIY XO Glittery Wine Stoppers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and ChocolateDIY XO Glittery Wine Stoppers for Valentine's Day | Popcorn and ChocolateThese glittery XO wine stoppers would be the perfect decoration to add to your bar cart at your Galentine’s day party.

Instructions for XO wine stoppers:

  1. Make your plaster by following the instructions on the bottle and then pour it into your silicone tray in the X and the O. Let dry for the allotted time it says on your Plaster of Paris (about an hour).Plaster XO wine stoppers | Popcorn and Chocolate
  2. Once the X and O have dried, pull out of the tray and if you want to paint yours this would be the time to do so. As you can see I painted one set pink and left the other plain. Let dry.Painted plaster xo wine stopper | Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Take your paint brush and dip it into the mod podge then paint on the glue in the areas that you want glitter to be. I sort of did a dip-dyed look with mine. Painted plaster xo wine stopper | Popcorn and Chocolate
