For today's project, I'm going to show you a simple, affordable gift perfect for the country girl in your life - Fancy Cowgirl Wineglasses.
I came across the idea on Pinterest but put my own twist on it to make it a little fancier.
- (4) 12 ounce Mason Jars
- (4) clear candle holders (Dollar Store)
- D6000 Glue (best glue ever - dries clear as glass)
- Misc. beads, confetti, glitter, etc.
Wash the mason jars and candle sticks to remove all residue. Wipe the bottom of the mason jar and the rim of the candle stick with a cotton ball moistened with alcohol. Allow to dry. This is a second effort to remove any and all residue so the jar stays glued to the candle stick (aka wine stem). Cause there's nothing worse than having a big ol' glass full of moonshine spill all over the place!
Next, fill the hole in the candle holder with beads or confetti or any small item that you'd like to use. (This is my addition to the project.) You could even apply a coat of clear glue (I would suggest Mod Podge) and sprinkle in glitter (allow to dry before gluing on the jar). After you've fanci-fied your candle holder, apply a medium amount of glue to the rim of the candle holder. You don't want too much because it will seep into the candle holder well and make your beads stick together.
Place the jar on top and allow to dry for 4 hours. Check on your wineglass occasionally to make sure the jar hasn't moved or slipped off center.
That's it! All done!
