Fall is here and Halloween is well on its way. That means it’s time to whip out our glue guns and get festive!
And what better way to do so then by channeling your inner Disney princess with this glow in the dark poison apple wine glass? Well, you could always pair it with our wicked Poison Apple cocktail recipe from last week. 😉
This project is fairly easy though it does take a bit of patience, so turn on Hocus Pocus or anything else from our Halloween Movies Watchlist, and let’s get to it.

- 1 Stemless Wine Glass
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Sticks
- White Craft Paint
- White Glow in the Dark Paint
- Poison Apple Template, optional
Tips + Tricks for Crafting
- Paint in thin layers; it will allow each coat to dry faster
- Do not paint or glue all the way around, these products are not food safe. Leave 2-3 inches at the back of the glass empty, so that you can safely drink from it
- This is not dishwasher safe, wash by hand only
Poison Apple Template
The design is fairly simple and if you’re a budding or accomplished artist you may not need a template. But if you do, I’ve got you covered.
Download, save, and print the image above which includes 3 sizes of the iconic poison apple from Snow White. Cut each out and place around your glass individually to determine which is the best size.
Once you’ve figured out which to use, place it inside the glass and use a ball (or your hand) to hold it up. Using your hot glue gun trace the eyes and nose from the template onto the front of your glass, then remove the template.
Starting 1/4 inch below the rim of the glass use the hot glue gun to create down the glass, leaving 1/2 inch at the bottom of the glass clean and avoiding the eyes and nose that you’ve traced. The areas just below the eyes should be significantly shorter than the rest, which will give the appearance of teeth.
The hot glue will dry quickly and you’ll be able to start painting almost immediately.
Paint the dried glue white, using several thin coats, until it is completely opaque. Once it’s dried completely, apply the glow in the dark paint on top in 2-3 think layers. Because the glow in the dark paint is nearly translucent, using thin layers would leave brushstrokes.
That’s it! Fill it up with your favorite wine or our Poison Appl cocktail recipe (you should definitely pick that one)
