Button Wine Charms

I just finished making these cute button wine charms.
 Here's  what you'll need.

skill level: no skill required
supplies: buttons (you've collected), earring hoops (or wire), needle nose pliers...that's it!
cost: pennies for the wire hoops
time: in 5 minutes you'll have a set.
gratification: instant!

 I gathered a few jars of buttons. I had a few earring hoops on hand. In no time I had festive wine charms. I used red, green and white for Christmas. You can use any colors, for every season or decor.
Just thread the buttons onto the hoops.
 You can get these at the craft store. You could also make your own by bending wire around a broom handle and making a small loop at one end.
 Two or three buttons on each hoop.
 Then bend the straight end with your pliers to make a hook.
 That's it!
It's fun to pick out different buttons.
It will help keep your guests wineglasses properly identified.
I think I'll make some to use anytime too.
A set would make a cute small gift.
Quick, Cute, Easy, No Cost, No Skill....my kind of craft!

  8. Hi there,

    Smart way to see which & who owns the glass, right?

    Last summer 2010, I found some pretty mini fruits in an odd store in Old Town in Stockholm.

    I couldn't resist to buy some for me & that, I made my own fruity glass sign.

    I will share some of these days coming.

    But, absolutely stunning thoughts using buttons. TY for sharing. I might make more some of this.
    To change my summery signs.

    Happy TS…

    Greeting from a freezing Stockholm.
