Introduction: Scrabble(tm) Wine Glass Charms

Picture of Scrabble(tm) Wine Glass Charms


If you're like me you have lots of unused board games in a closet somewhere.  Re-purpose the old Scrabble tiles into smart looking wine glass charms.  

(This combines two of my favorite things: WINE and SCRABBLE!)

Step 1:

You'll need:

Scrabble tiles
small jump rings
hoops (i used earring hoops)
drill

Step 2:

Drill a small hole in the Scrabble tile using the smallest drill bit you can find in the jumble of drill bits in the tool chest in the garage. 
Try to insert the jump ring through the hole.  After 45 minutes and raw thumbs go to the local craft store and buy a jump ring pliers.  Thread jump ring through hole in the tile.  Attach jump ring to earring hoop and VOILA!  You have a snazzy looking wine glass charm!

I've made these to give away in gift baskets.  Just find a piece of cardstock or cardboard and "sew" on each wine charm with yarn.  Get a basket, add a bottle or two of wine, two colorful cloth napkins, a pretty wine stopper, the charms and some truffles and you have the best gift ever!

I am always trying to come up with gift ideas to add to by baskets. I have a few baskets made up to give to someone who needs cheered up. This idea is a perfect fit. Thanks again.
