Introduction: Beaded Beverage Markers

My parents enjoy having wine tastings and dinner parties and a common issue that arises is whose glass is whose! When everyone is drinking the same drink, it is easy to lose your glass. I found some wine markers online, but I thought they looked boring and very similar to each other, which defeats the whole purpose. I decided to make these more unique beverage markers using random beads I had left over from past projects. They're easy to make and they look good too! 

Step 1: Tools

What you'll need:
Assorted beads
Beading wire
Pliers

Step 2: Put It Together

Cut off about 6 inches of wire. Coil the end of the wire around the nose of the pliers to form a nice spiral. Thread the beads onto the wire until you have about 3/4 of an inch of wire left and coil the end around the pliers. 

Step 3: Finished Product

Twist the marker around the stem of the wine glass. Make more of them and you're done!
