How To Make Wine Glass and Mug Makers Using Beads!
Little Wine Glass & Mug Charms are so popular in all the stores right now that we keep having people ask us what's involved in making their own. Here is a simple step-by-step guide on how to make these adorable charms that ensure you always know which glass is yours at all your summer bbq's and parties!
Here is what you'll need:
1- 6 different colors of seed beads
(These strands of seed beads are just $1.49 each
and can do about a total of 3 complete sets of charms)
2- 6 Charms Such as These Little Mice
(These cute little Tibetan Silver charms are just .39 Cents Each)
3- Jump Rings
(This bag of a dozen jump rings is just .50 cents
and, will do 2 complete sets of charms.)
4 - 6 Wire Charm Hoops
(A bag of 6 wire hoops costs about $1.25)
Making the total cost for this project approx. $12.79 with enough beads left over to do 2 more sets, and enough jump rings to do 1 more complete set.
Step #1 - String the beads onto the wire hoops.
1 hoop done in each of the 6 colors.
Step #2 - Use jump ring to attach
the charm onto the hoop.
Once the charm is attached you're done!
Total time to make a set of 6 is about 15 minutes.
This is an easy and fun project.
Note: the cost decreases from $12.79 to just $7.18 a set if you make 3 sets at a time (the amount the strands of seed beads will make.)
