Redneck Wine Glasses

 This weekend is our annual ladies Christmas party.  It was started many years ago by my husbands grandma, Marge.  Grandma Marge passed away 2 years ago  but  it was decided to continue on in her memory. It also was decided that every year there would be new hostesses and guess who was chosen for this year.... 2 of my SIL's, a family friend, and I!!   We chose a wine theme so the games, prizes and even the gift exchanges all revolve around wine.  I came across this idea at our LSS, Crafts Direct,.and just thought this would be perfect for the party. You see we are all from "Up Nort" , "You Betcha",  Dont'cha Know"  ... and I must not forget
"Uff-DA!!" LOL   These Redneck wineglasses will be prizes  for our guests
They were easy and very inexpensive to make.  The jars are old canning pint size canning jars and the stems are small vases that I found at Savers for .69 ea.  Candlestick holders can be used, but I could not find any of those but I thought these worked great.  I  filled one vace with  glitter snow flakes and the other I used MS glitter. I then glued the jars to the vases using E6000 glue and let them fry overnight.  I then attached the buttons, ribbon and bakers twine.  For the lettering, I used the Mickey Font cartridge cutting the letters at .75in  and the numbers at .50in.  Everything I used was from my stash excepted for the vases.
And there you have it... beautiful  RedNeck Wineglasses
