DIY Wine Glass Charms

DIY charms for wine glasses

A year or so ago, a friend bought me some wine glass charms. My first thought was I bet I could make that. So, this week, I dug them out of the kitchen drawer and took a good look at them. Yep. I can do that.

It was actually pretty simple. You can choose to use tools or not, but they make the process a bit easier. Your call. You can get the charms and wire at any craft store. Be sure to pick up some wine on your way home. You know you’ll want to test your charms!

Note: Pick beads with a large hole through the center. There are some beads that are meant for very thin wire or string. You want beads that will slide freely on whichever wire you choose.

Things You Will Need:
Wire
Beads
Charms
Wire rings
Pliers (optional)

charm loop

Step 1

Put a small loop at the end of your wire. You can use pliers for this or find a small object to wrap it around.

Step 2
Wrap your wire around a larger, round object to make it about an inch in diameter.

Add your charms and/or beads.

Then, twist the end of the wire without the loop upwards (or sideways, whatever works best for you) so that the extension fits inside the loop and holds the two ends together.

You should have something like this when you’re finished. I really loved making these and might have gone overboard…

So many charms

I made some with thin wire and some with thick wire. I prefer the thin wire because it makes the charm look more dainty. There are a few of each in the image above so that you can see the difference. Which one do you like?

If you’re interested in a cute wine glass to go with your new charms, trying making some glittery glasses or redneck wine glasses!

Happy crafting!
