These festive DIY drink or wine charms are an example of one of the those projects that are so simple and yet add so much. And they are practical I might add, especially if you're entertaining informally where guests might be prone to walk around with wine glasses, or any glass that has either a handle or a thin stem. I was inspired to make my own version of this original project, which I found on Craft Schooling Sunday this week, posted by the Italian site, Alessia, scrap and craft.
And what are they made from you ask-well my crafty friends the answer is craft foam! So, if you don't have some on hand, pick some up and make some festive drink charms for your next get together or even just for yourself to add a bit of simple color and design to your life!
For complete instructions continue reading below:
- craft foam
- a pair of scissors
- a pencil
- a piece of cardboard, like from a cereal box
How To: Make a template by drawing your design on a piece of thin cardboard and cutting it out. Trace around your template onto the craft foam and cut out your pieces. Cut a small slit just beneath the flower shape. Be careful to make it just big enough to slide the leaf end through while folded. Voila! Wasn't that easy. For large parties you could even have guests write their names on their charms, or even make their own! And let me tell you, on Friday night at our shabbat table I confused my glass with that of my direct neighbor at the table, so maybe I need one of these all the time!
Oh and by the way, a set of these sure would make a cute little hostess gift don't you think? Plus you could show off your craftiness with minimal time investment, always a good thing!
