My Project

I’ve always loved the idea of wine glass charms. They can be so cute and really are a helpful little thing to keep drinks in the right hands at a party. I didn’t have any holiday themed ones, so I thought this would be a perfect time to give my idea a try. 

The Technique & Design

I have to admit, the charms really shrunk more than I thought they would, but in the end, I think they turned out to be a great size! I did have to go shopping for all of the beads and charm wire (they’re hoop earring wires), which was a fun time at Michael’s down an aisle I don’t normally frequent!

The nice thing about making the shrink plastic charms (besides how fun it is to watch them shrink up) is that the coloring is super easy and doesn’t have to be precise. This is something the kids could do with you helping with the heating and shrinking part. Then, put them to task stringing the beads and charms while you close off the ends!
