Whether you drink wine or not, chances are you like to use fun glasses for parties!  Maybe even these Spider Web Martini Glasses that I made before!  The only problem with ditching the solo cup and permanent marker,  is that it’s hard to tell who’s drink is who’s when you have more than one person drinking from them!  These DIY Wine Glass Charms are so easy to make and you can customize them for whatever occasion you have in store!

Supplies Needed:

  • Wine Glass Charm Rings*
  • Beads
  • Specialty Button Pack

First I will give you a quick step if you cannot find the premade wine charm rings.  Simply take your head pins and wrap them around the magic marker.  Wrap them tight and in a fluid motion.  You can use the pliers if needed, I was able just to use my fingers to hold it tight to the marker.  You will be left with this ring where the ends overlap forming the perfect charm for your glasses!

OK now that we have our rings, premade or made ourselves, the process is super simple!  I strung on a square black bead, a fun Halloween button, then another bead.  And you are done.  I told you this was easy!  Why buy them when you can so easily make them?

I love the way the the square beads look on the round rings!  You can choose any shape or color of beads you like as well as buttons!  Jo-Ann has a huge selection of strung beads as well as fun buttons!

Make your Own Wine Charms

Pop them around the stems of your glasses and each guest can now distinguish which glass is theirs!  No germ sharing happening today :)

A few more fun ways to turn your party From Shriek to Chic:

I picked up these cute orange and black burlap bags.

If you read this blog often you will know I LOVE to use bandanas for napkins!  They are the perfect size, perfect fabric weight and easily washable and re-foldable.  I have used them before for my thanksgiving table, football parties and 4th of July festivities!  So for this party I simply filled the cute bags with and opposite colored bandana and silverware and I tied them shut with these cute Stamped Ghost Tags that I made with my Silhouette CAMEO and the Stamp Kit (you can also find both of these, the CAMEO and stamp kit at Jo-Ann)

I had the best time the other night!  Do you want to know what I did?  No really…you WANT to know!  I had some friends over and we had a painting party!  No, no we didn’t paint a room in my house, {although that would have been nice!} we painted canvas art through a new program from DecoArt called Social Artworking!

We had such a great time and look what we created!!  Can you believe we painted that!?

 

Explore your inner Artist with Social Networking

I bet a few of you are thinking, “I’m not that artsy…I probably could not do that!”  Well, this would be a good time for me to tell you that you are wrong.  I normally don’t like to tell you, my fantastically awesome friends that you are wrong, but indeed you are wrong in this case!  This program is for everyone.  It’s sort of like paint by numbers but in grown up fashion.  There aren’t numbers but there are steps.  They are so easy to follow everyone at my party was able to easily create a masterpiece.   My friends ranged from one I had to lure over assuring her she could to do it to an art teacher.  We all had a great time.

Social Artworking Painting Party Fun

It was great to just sit and chat and eat and drink and just be together while we each created a masterpiece that was our own.  Did I mention there was lots of laughing?  Yes lots of fun and LOTS of laughing!

Beer Tasting Event

Name That Beer! | Father’s Day Beer Tasting Event

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of World Market. All opinions are 100% mine.

Dad’s are so special to me.  Not only my own dad, but my husband is a great dad to my boys.  I was so excited to get this opportunity to plan a little event in THEIR honor to celebrate them as great dads thanks to World Market!

I headed to The World Market to pick out some things that I thought they would love.  I thought it would be really fun to host a beer tasting event for them.  Not just any beer tasting though…a Name That Beer contest!

Name That Beer game

I stocked up on some beer and also some great appetizer/chip cones and little glasses for my beer tasting event!  I gave each of the guys these these printables I made so that they could try to match the beer in their glasses with the beers on the table!
