Have you heard of Redneck wine glasses? I actually had never heard of them until a few months ago when someone had mentioned them. Looking them up there are all kinds and so many awesome ideas on how to decorate them. I have seen them online and in stores from about $13.00 to about $20.00 a piece. They are cool but I was thinking to myself......not that cool! After doing a little research I found several ideas on how to make them. Here is my version for about $2.50!!
|First: you start with a good old fashioned mason jar, the wide mouth ones tend to be better and you want to use the smaller ones.|
|Second: you need to take your base, I used candlestick holders Dollar General. They are the perfect size and fit the bottom of a mason jar perfect.|
And that is it! You have a yourself a Redneck Wine Glass! Simple and cheap! Make sure you hand wash them. I have not yet tried to throw them in the dishwasher, but you never know.
Now after making myself a few glasses and some Christmas presents :) I had glue left and decided to venture further with the glass glue! I have often wanted to make a cake plate. So off the Dollar General I went! This is what I found:
|A glass ice cream dish|
|A very cool glass plate, with same size circle as the ice cream dish|
|A very unique $2.00 cake stand!|
