I'm sure you've probably seen the Redneck Wine Glasses that came out last year. I originally saw them at Hallmark for $14.99 each.
Well......I'm just too darn thrifty (ok - cheap!) to pay that much for something I can make myself! Plus mine are Genuine Texas Redneck Wine Glasses! Mine cost less than $2 not including the glue, paper and fabric strips.
The base is a glass candlestick from the dollar store (Crosby even has an Everything's a Dollar now) and the jar came from Walmart and I think it was about 75 cents. I glued it together with E6000 glue which is seriously awesome stuff. You can get it at Walmart in the craft section and it is like a really thick super glue. Just turn the mason jar over (makes it easier to center the candlestick) then place a bead of glue on the candlestick on place it on the jar. Let it dry overnight.
I made the tag in PrintShop and converted it to a jpeg for everyone to use. I have a 3 1/2" scalloped circle punch that I used to cut them out, then glued them back to back and punched a hole in the top. You could use ribbon to tie them on but I tore small strips of fabric and also used some twine on mine. The lid has a small circle of red white and blue paper inserted between the ring and cap.
The last embellishment is hard to see but I added some small rhinestones on the bottom and glued them on with the E6000. I used what I had on hand, but you could really bling it up if you wanted to.
|This is the back of the tag.|
The tag is a jpeg and it should print out correctly for you if you print it full size - 8 1/2 x 11.
So fill her up and shout a big TEXAS YEEHAW
as you toast to the LONE STAR STATE!
