Hillbilly Wine Glasses
OK...For the record...these people are truly not Hillbillies! They are, however...from LA...that's Lower Alabama :) They're my Aunt and Uncle and they arrived to our destination Thanksgiving weekend (a.k.a FEED FEST 2011!!) in Deep Creek, Maryland with their own stemware! How super cute!!!!!!!! We all went crazy for them...but as soon as I heard $16.50 EACH the Treatgirl went into, "I can soooooo make that for waaaay less" mode. Especially when my sister went online and was going to order 8 of them AND pay for shipping!
These are sooooooooo super easy to make!! If you haven't figured it out, it's merely a Mason jar that I got at Michael's for $1.29 and a Dollar Tree candle stick...for, you got it.... a dollar :)
There were a bunch of glues to pick from at Michael's...but this one seemed like it would do the job. I just put a ribbon of glue around the bottom of the Mason jar and literally stuck the candlestick to it. I made 8 of them for my sister...I kept them all upside and stacked a bunch of books on them for extra weight and let them dry for 24 hours.
VOILA! Stinkin' EASY! You can even use littler, tiny jelly jars and make martini glasses. I'm going to link up to my real life friend Jennifer Juniper's Tuesday Tutorial post...hop over there and check it out.
