Cheers, friends! It’s Bre from Average But Inspired, and I’m back with another fantastic resin craft project that seamlessly blends form and function. Plus, you’ll have a blast making this resin project: it’s so fun!
Supplies Used to Make a DIY Resin Wine Glass Holder
Here are the materials I used to make this wine glass and bottle holder as you see it in this post. I went for a mixed metallics look, but remember that you can customize any of the elements to get a color scheme or theme unique to you or the intended recipient!
- ETI EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
- PolyColor Resin Powder in Copper Metallic, Gold Metallic, and Pewter
- ETI Mixing Cup Set
- Small mixing cups
- Silicone wine glass holder mold
- Glass glitter in silver
- Gloves, protective eyewear, and work surface covering
How to Make a DIY Wine Glass Holder with EasyCast Resin
I created this resin wine glass holder by pouring two layers of resin in the mold. Because of that, and to reach a full hard cure (which is necessary to support the weight of the wine glasses), this project took about five days to be ready for use, from start to finish.
Don’t let the time involved fool you, however. It’s a very easy resin project: it just requires the proper amount of time to harden fully.
Mix and Pour the First Layer of Resin
To start, I mixed six ounces of EasyCast by combining three ounces of resin with three ounces of hardener, and mixing for two minutes. Then I poured the mixed resin into another mixing cup, and used a fresh stick to stir for another minute.
I then separated the mixed EasyCast into three smaller mixing cups. In one cup I added glass glitter, and in the other two I added PolyColor Resin Powder in Copper Metallic and PolyColor Resin Powder in Gold Metallic (one pigment per cup).
For the PolyColor Resin Powder, I only added a pinch of each to the resin, and I stirred very well. A little bit of the Resin Powder goes a long way. The pigments are incredibly intense and add vibrant color and shimmer with even the smallest amount. (You will be able to use one package of Resin Powder in a lot of resin projects!)
I began by pouring a small amount of clear EasyCast into the wine glass holder silicone mold. Next, I poured some of the EasyCast with glitter mixed in. Then I added in EasyCast with the Copper Metallic Resin Powder mixed in, and finally the EasyCast with Gold Metallic Resin Powder mixed in.
I added enough of each color until the resin covered the bottom of the mold, and the resin went about halfway up the mold.
The colors swirled together naturally and created a beautiful look all on their own. I set the project aside to harden.
Add the Second Layer of Resin
After approximately twenty-four hours, the first layer of resin had hardened in the mold and it was time to create the next layer.
For this layer, I mixed four ounces of EasyCast by combining two ounces of resin with two ounces of hardener, and mixing in the same manner described above.
I then mixed in a pinch of PolyColor Resin Powder in Pewter and stirred it thoroughly. I poured that resin into the mold and loved watching the metallic swirls of pewter fill in the entire wine glass holder mold.
Once filled, I left the project to harden: this time for seventy-two hours so it could reach a totally hard cure.
I was so excited to remove it from the mold and see the gorgeous mixed metallics. Using the dark pewter resin on the bottom (achieved with the PolyColor Resin Powder in Pewter), really helped the shimmering gold and copper on the top layer stand out.
The PolyColor Resin Powders created an absolutely stunning combination that’s even more beautiful in person.
This DIY wine glass and bottle holder is just beautiful. I’m definitely keeping this one for myself, but I’m already dreaming up all of the fun color combinations to try and ways I can personalize these resin wine glass holders to give as gifts.
