Do It yourself Wine Charms
Did you know that September is California wine month? Me neither…
Since writing a DIY blog, I’m constantly looking for DIY projects both big and small. One of my best friends is getting married and her family and I are hosting a wine tasting theme party for her for her bridal shower. For the favors, I decided to give away the wine glass with a personalized wine charm with each guest’s initials. Making custom-made do it yourself wine charms is an inexpensive way to personalize a wine tasting party.
These disposable do it yourself wine charms are very quick and easy to make. The materials needed are as follows:
- Decorative paper and blank card stock
- Craft punch in two sizes (I used a 1” diameter circle and a ½”
diameter circle punch
- Small hole punch
- Decoupage medium
- Paint brush
- Wire earring hoops
- Computer (optional)
- Double sided tape (optional)
I have also made blank charms as well. That way, your guests can write down or initial their own name.
Step One: Punch out desired amount of 1” circles.
Step Two: Punch out desired amount of ½” circles. For this tutorial, I printed and punched guest initials for the front and a personalized message and date for the back.
Step Three: Use double sided tape or decoupage medium to adhere 1/2” Circles to 1” circles. I find it easier and less messy to use double sided tape.
Step Four: Punch small hole in the top of each charm and fasten an earring hoop onto each charm.
Step Five: Use decoupage medium to seal each side. Paint two coats on each side, allowing the glue to dry completely in between each coat (approximately 15 minutes).
Note: When applying the decoupage, the circle will curl, however after two coats are dried on both sides, the charm will flatten.
Tip: If you are making blank charms, skip step three. Then after you paint on your second coat, lay the ½” circle on top of the wet second coat and allow it to dry.
