DIY: Halloween Wine Charms
Hi there! Kimberly from A Night Owl Blog here, back to share a fun and easy wine DIY with you for this holiday season – these DIY Halloween Wine Charms!
Are you hosting a Halloween party this year? If so, a great variety of wine is a must. And if you’re like me and like to customize decor and more for your parties, then this easy afternoon project is just for you! I grabbed everything I needed at a local hobby store, mostly from the jewelry making section.
Little bottlecap charms, resin and wire set the foundation for the wine charms, while the glitter and buttons you find will allow you to customize! For Halloween, I found cute candy corn buttons and spooky spiders that I knew would be perfect! But you can choose any button or small token that you think would fit your party theme the best.
- Jewelry resin
- Jewelry charms
- Festive buttons
- Glitter (various colors)
- Earring wire
- Wire cutters (opt)
And the steps:
- Mix together your jewelry resin according to the instructions on the package. I had to push to combine two tubes and mix in a small cup.
- Then fill your charm half way with resin, sprinkle in glitter and stir. Depending on how many different types of buttons you have, you’ll want to alternate the glitter colors so that each charm is unique!
- So that it would lay flush in the charm, I used wire cutters to cut off the back of the button.
- Then I simply popped the button in to the charm with the resin.
- I allowed the first layer to dry for a couple of hours, then I added more resin once the button was set, to fill in the charm.
- The hardest part is waiting! Depending on your resin, you may have to wait 4-6 hours for the charms to dry.
- Once they are dry, simply string an earring wire through the top and they’re ready for use!
And the result? Fun and festive DIY Halloween Wine Charms! Perfectly customized for your Halloween soiree!
It honestly was a fun project to put together and you could do it too in just one afternoon! And just think of all the customization options. What would you create?
