I know it was all the rage a few years ago to make your own wine glass charms. It is something I never thought to do, until now.
For some time I’ve been eyeing my bingo markers and other vintage game pieces and thinking that they would make great wine glass charms. I also have lots of beads from when I did a bit of beading.
For a while I have been searching for inexpensive hoop earring to make my wine glass charms. Finally I found some beverage i.d. hoops at a discount store I like to check out every now and then. $.99 for 12 – sold. In fact I grabbed two packs.
And then they sat, and sat, until today.
I finally gathered some supplies, plugged in my mini drill and went to work.
I have a set of small dice that I thought would be the perfect charm.
I carefully drilled a hole in the dice, keeping track that I would have a set with all the numbers.
I wanted to add a bit of color and I just happened to have some turquoise beads. I think they added just the bit of color I was looking for.
Perfect, I love the results.
I think a set of 6 would make a great gift.
Don’t they look great?
Now to sit back and enjoy a drink in a glass that I know is mine….
Uh oh, I see this jar of game pieces calling my name.
I may just see more game piece wine charms in my future.

I really like how this project turned out. I did use all 12 of the small dice that I had so I have two sets of six charms.
Sit back, relax and have a glass of wine or the beverage of your choice with me.
