Crystal glasses are something that every home owner should have in their living space. The ideal solution for serving sophisticated drinks for your friends or just for yourself; they’re items that can last forever if they’re cared for properly.
Did you realize though, that there uses extend further than just the obvious? With a little bit of creativity, they can also add an interesting element to your home decor. They can be used as multi purpose decors for your DIY home improvement projects. Thus, purchasing some fine crystals every now and then can be considered as an investment.
Here, we take a look at how you can use crystal glasses as home decors.
Display them in a glass cabinet
Crystal glasses are often very beautiful, so you don’t have to do anything extreme to make them look good. Consider investing in a glass-fronted cabinet to show off your glasses. This also has the added bonus of meaning that they don’t need to be dusted quite as often! Crystal glasses are classy and elegant yet they are not expensive to maintain.
Fill them with sand and candles
Fill the bottom of your glass with sand and then place a small tea light on top. This can add a nautical feel to your home, and it’s also super cheap to do! Just pick up some sand and small handles from your local home store. This can help change the smell and ambiance of your home especially at night.
Keep your dinner table set at all times
Nothing looks more inviting in a home than a dinner table that is set and ready to go! It’s a great way to free up space in your kitchen cupboards and show off your best items of crockery and glassware. It also means that you’ll never need to worry about setting the table at the last minute ever again!
Tie colored ribbons around them
A few colored ribbons tied around the base of your glasses is easy to do and can add a playful theme to your home. If you have friends round for drinks, it’s also a handy way to keep track of which glass belongs to whom. Of course, go for colors that complement the rest of your home decor. On the other hand, if you are not fond of ribbons, you can create customized beads and put them on the stems of the wine glasses.
As you can see, there are many ways to add another dimension to your glassware. All you need are creativity, resourcefulness, and of course, more time and effort.
