Redneck Wine Glass

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.

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! 


  1. Those are cool. My daughter has been wanting some. Maybe I'll get in and make some for her. Lord knows I have plenty of fabric to use. Thanks for sharing

  2. Thanks Carla - these are super easy to make and you can really bling them up.

  3. haha...I LOVE this. The tag is super cute. I would love if you shared this on my link party.

    Can't wait to see what you come up with next.


  4. Thanks so much Taylor! I will definitely link up to your party! Thanks for dropping by!

  5. LOVE this! It is on my list to make for Christmas presents. Laura from Real Momma stopping by to say thanks for linking up to the Best of your Best Blog Hop!

  6. I have so wanted some of these but didn't realize how cheap they were, I think I may make them for my book club!

    1. Kelley - I got the candlesticks at Everything's a Dollar and right now they have plenty at our local store. Don't know if you have one of those close to you, but that is the cheapest place to find them. You can buy the jars by the dozen at most grocery and big box stores. Let me know how yours turn out!
