Just cut pieces of adhesive vinyl and stick them onto your Dollar Store glasses, you don’t want to try this on the expensive glass and then regret it.

Bleach Dyed Napkins
Unlike traditional tie and dye where you add color to garments, bleach dyeing involves the use of bleach to remove the color from them. When creating tie-dye patterns with bleach, fold a colored napkin, secure it with rubber bands then spray the areas that are exposed with bleach. Let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with water. Hang the napkin to dry.
