Hello hello witchy readers!! Because I believe so much in getting creative and using that part of your tool belt to get you out of rut, I’ve decided to do a monthly WitchCrafts segment! The Ace of Cups runneth over with creativity, and so will your heart when you get cracking on these projects!!
In honor of Halloween and the opportunity to host a kick ass party (as I am doing for my birthday) I decided to make some Witchy Wine Charms! They are really easy to make and you can do it while watching a scary movie and sipping a cocktail, exactly as I did.
I buy all of my materials on eBay, so it’s extremely affordable to make these guys. You can also just input exactly what is on the list into the search bar and they should come right up.
Alright, all you need for these wine charms:
- memory wire (ring size)
- small beads (I used small amethysts)
- small pendants (I used sterling skull charms so I had to fasten jump rings)
- craft pliers (I used flat nose, they worked better with the strength of the memory wire)
- wire cutters
So first step is to get all of your supplies together. I like to do a bulk of one step at a time to produce more faster, but you can make your charms individually too. I suggest, if you bought charms instead of pendants (the circle on top is facing with the hole on the front instead of the side) to put your jump rings on these guys first so the charm lays correctly.
Then were going to go through and cut each memory wire ring. You want about a quarter inch on each side (so half inch in total that crosses.)
After you have your individual ring, bend back the loose portion on one side to create kind of a loop. It doesn’t have to be perfect but its necessary for the beads to stay on.
Then thread your bead, then charm, then other bead onto the memory wire.
Then bend back that last loose side to complete the charm!
Fasten the two loops around the glass and you’re ready to party without losing your drink.
Hope this was as fun for you as it was for me! Party smart and stay witchy ( *)
