Instructions

  1. Cut a piece of the wire about 6 inches in length. You won't use this much wire, but it's easier to work with too much wire than not enough.
  2. Using the small tips on the wire cutters, round one end of the wire.

  3. Thread on the beads in the order you want them. If you are using a hanging bead, be sure it is in the center of the pattern. After you have beads on there, you can curl it in a circle to see if you like the pattern and the size of the Wine Glass Charm.

  4. After you have all the beads on there and are happy with the result, take the wire cutters and trim the excess wire leaving just enough to make a loop at the cut end of the wire.

  5. Curl the two ends together and shape the charm with your fingers into a circle.

  6. Now you are ready to put them on a wine glass. To attach them, just open the two ends, place on the glass, then tighten the two ends.

  7. You could also package them in a small bag from your craft store and give a set as a gift. I would recommend making a set of 4-8. This allows for your receivers to use them with friends over.

Glad you like it! This is one of my favorites. I have given it as gifts and use ones I have made for myself all the time! Hope you get a chance to make some!
