These DIY diamond wine charms are easy to make, super cute, and can be made in an afternoon. Check out the tutorial!
Believe it or not, I’m a newbie when it comes to the world of wine. I’ve moved onto some more classic whites and have ventured farther than a Moscato or Riesling, but I’m still not a reds fan yet. (I’m working on it!) As I’ve dived deeper into all things grape, I find myself hosting more and more wine nights, researching perfect pairings, and geeking out over wine glasses and other accessories. One of the things that I don’t have yet….? Wine charms! It’s really easy to misplace your glass when you have a few friends over, so I decided to make some fun DIY diamond wine charms for myself!
- Beading Hoops
- Clay Cutting Tool
- Baking Sheet
First, begin by rolling your clay out into a flat circle, deciding how thick you want your finished diamonds to be. Mine are about 1/4″ thick. Once you have your desired thickness, begin to cut out a diamond shape, using your clay cutting tool. You can free hand it, or do what I did to make it even easier on yourself, and trace a diamond pattern using a “stencil”. (I just found a shape I liked online and printed it in the size I wanted my finished charms to be).
Using your clay tool, imprint the diamond cross pattern onto the top of your diamond shape. Be careful not to press too hard so that you don’t go all the way through. To deepen the lines, go over them a few times, lightly, with your tool.
Do you guys have any wine recommendations for me? Or tips for easing yourself into the red family? I’m sure there are some fellow wine-o’s out there!
