Introduction: Hick or Country (AKA Redneck) Wine Glasses Hijack
I saw these "Redneck" wine glasses at a friend's party, and just had to make them myself........I refuse to pay the $16.99 EACH I saw a local harware store asking for them.
My "Country" neighbors make their own wine, and complain about how "flimsy" regular wine glasses feel. These were a HUGE hit! My Neighbor keeps the lid in place to prevent spillage, and to keep "critters" from flying, or falling into her wine.
Step 1: Step 1 Gather Your Supplies
I bought new 1/2 pint canning jars with flats, and lids, but you could use just about any glass jar you have. I also want to try a 1/4 pint jar for a "martini glass" (see an example of it in my supply picture)
1 Glass canning (mason) jar for each wine glass you plan on making
1 Glass candle stick (I bought mine for $1.00 each at a dollar type store) for each wine glass you plan on making
E6000 glue (it's what I had on hand) or other clear glue that works on glass
paper towel or cotton ball
Step 2: Step 2 Prepare Your Glass
Working in a well lit, and well ventilated area, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS for the glue you plan on using, and FOLLOW THEM!
Mine says to make sure both surfaces are clean, so just to be sure I cleaned both surfaces with rubbing alcohol, on a paper towel, and allowed them to dry.
Step 3: Step 3 Apply Glue
The E6000 Glue said to apply glue to both surfaces that you are gluing. I applied a THIN bead of glue to both the canning jar bottom where the candle stick will sit, as well as to the rim of the candlestick. Keep the bead thin, or you will have a MESS.....ask me how I know!
and now you set the timer and WAIT............for 2 minutes (or whatever your glue instructions say)
Step 4: Step 4 Assemble
IF 2 minutes have passed you are now ready to position the canning jar on top of the candlestick. Look at it from several angles to make sure it's straight. The glue will be set in a couple of hours, and will be cured in 24-72 hours.
Clean up any uncured glue with acetone.
Embelish by gluing on clear marbles, painting, or simply tie with twine.
