You may remember that last year I teamed up with the rest of the Plaid Creators to make over a room using items that each of us made. I made this planter and we staged the room at my house where it was photographed. Well this year we’ve collaborated again for Friendsgiving! Each of us have contributed elements which can be incorporated into a tablescape. My project for this collaboration was these Thanksgiving wine glass charms.

- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
- Mod Podge
- Jewelry Wire
- Needle nose pliers/wire cutter
- Plain white paper
- Jewelry charms/blanks
- Fall stickers (Small enough to fit onto your blank. Each one should be different.)
First, trace the shape of your metal blank onto your paper. I just pressed the paper on top and used the indentions as a guide, then cut out the circle. You may have to play around with it a bit to get it down to the right size.
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the charm and also to the back of your paper circle. Adhere your paper to the circle and smooth it with your fingers. Allow it to dry for 20 minutes. (You can find Mod Podge and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic at most craft stores.)
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the charm, on top of the paper and around the edges. Allow that to dry for 20 minutes.
Apply a sticker to the center of the charm. Carefully pour Mod Podge Dimensional Magic into the charm, filling it up to the brim. Allow it to dry for 2 hours.
While your charm is drying, cut pieces of wire to 3 inches long. Shape each one into a circle. (I wrapped it around a bottle top to help shape it.) Bend the edges so they will hook together. (You may have to play around with this a bit to get the shape right and the hooks bent properly.)
Now you can hook them onto your wine glass stems so that everyone can identify which glass is theirs.
