I'm the crafty one at my work and every so often, I'll host "Craft Time" with my coworkers. Usually I try to find something that everyone can do. We've made our own chalkboard paint and did some painting; cookie mix in a jar; rosette wreaths; Valentine's crafts; and peppermint bark on a stick. This year, we made Redneck Wine Glasses. What are these, you ask?? Take a look at the finished project:
To make these glasses, apply a thin line of E6000 glue to the rim of the candlestick top edge and place on the bottom of the jar - center it. That's it!! The glue needs to sit for 24 hours.
I always have to add a little paper crafting so these little Christmas bulb tags were added. I cut them out using my Creat a Critter Cricut cartridge. Punched two holes on top of the black base (as an after thought, I should have used gray versus black) and tied the string to it and around the jar.
Here's a photo of more of them together:
These "glasses" cost $2.00 + tax to make. The stems were purchased from the Dollar Tree for umm...a dollar and a dozen mason jars were $11.97. I already had the E6000 glue so SCORE!
Some of my coworkers were saying they would fill theirs up with candy and give them that way...me? I want to fill with a mini-bottle of wine/champagne or some kind of booze. Oh well, 'Tis the Season!
I have not tried to purchase these, but I heard they sell in the range of $10 to $15 each...crazy!
