Make Wine Charms

More Information

Making wine charms is easy to do! Here’s all you need for starters: tiles for the charms, glue, & bails:

sml glueWe use E6000 for glue all of our wine accessories and jewelry. It’s the best glue for jewelry making that we know of and it is now available locally – try Hobby Lobby. The bails are from Etsy, where we get a lot of our supplies. Here’s what the tiles look like from the back:

I usually glue 6 at a time but you might want to start with fewer. The glue works best if you put a little on both items that will be glued together and if you let it set for just a minute before putting them together. I squeeze a bit of glue onto wax paper &, with a round toothpick, put a scant amount on each porcelain tile & on a corresponding bail. By the time I finish putting on all the glue, it is time to fasten each bail to its tile.
