Today I will be doing a simple tutorial on How to make Hobnail Cups. What is Hobnail? Hobnail is a type of design used in glassware that presents a pattern of  bumped dots that gives an irregular texture. A good example of this type of vases are these golden ones that I found on Pier1 Imports. You can recreate this type of design using this technique easy technique and today I will be showing you how you can do them using glass cups and stickers from Dollar Tree.

Materials to make your own Hobnail Glasses

To achieve the effect of embossed dots I will use stickers and glue them to the glass cups but before I started distributing the stickers (dots stickers) I passed a napkin with alcohol to remove any residue that would prevent the decals from they will stick well to the surface.

These are the stickers that I used to create the Hobnail effect.

I cut the stickers individually as they come in joined lists to keep the stickers at the same distance. And I simply stuck them to the random glass glasses without carrying any pattern.
