Happy New Year Wine Charms

Hi everyone.  Do you believe that New Year is almost upon us again?  So let's get ready to celebrate in style with some etched wine glasses decorated with ribbons and pretty wine charms. 


Begin by etching wine glasses with etchall® etching crème.   Die cut the year from the Cricut using vinyl.
 

      
 
Place tape around the glass so the etching crème does not touch the glass.  Add a generous amount of etching crème on the glass. 
 

Allow to sit for 15 minutes, the remove the etching crème and return it to the jar.  Eching crème is reusable so it can be used on other projects.



To create the wine charms, mix equal parts EasyCast® Clear Casting Epoxy resin and hardener into a mixing cup.  Stir for 2 full minutes to properly mix the products.  Then pour into a second cup and mix for another minute.

 
Die cut designs from assorted colors of Rinea Foils.   Use Ultra Seal Multi-Purpose Sealer to glue the foils in the bezels.  Once in place, paint another layer of Ultra Seal Multi-Purpose Sealer on the foils.  Allow to dry completely before continuing.
 
 
Use the stir stick to add resin to the bezels.  Pop any bubbles that may appear.  Allow to cure for at least 24 hours before moving the bezels. 

 
Add the completed charm plus an assortment of beads onto memory wire.
 
 
Use the Bowdabra to create bows and tie them to the wine stems along with some decorative holiday bulbs. 
 
 
Add a charm to each glass and enjoy.
 

The bows and charms can be removed for easy clean up. 

Thanks for stopping by.
