Intro: Redneck Traveling Wine Chalice

Stylish and practical, this highfalutin goblet goes where no other will.  It is equally at home in a five star hotel, as it is primitive camping with the wildcats and grizzly bears.  Best of all, it won't spill while you are not drinking from it.  Water, Dom Perignon, or That bad batch of homemade chokecherry wine, this chalice does it all.

Step 1: Supplies

The required supplies are:

A glass candlestick.  The dollar store can help here.
An empty jelly or canning jar.
Glue, specially formulated for glass to glass bonding.  Hobby Lobby sells GlassBond

Step 2: Bonding

Place a bead of glue on the candlestick, wait two minutes (per: the glue manufacture's instructions), then center the jar on the top of the candlestick.

Step 3: Wait

Go do something else crafty while the glue sets up.

Step 4: Customize

A bow adds a nice holiday flair.

Step 5: Test, Test, Test

Testing is important, make sure to test thoroughly.  Pour, Swirl, Sip, Chug, then put the lid on and give it a leak test.

Step 6: Again, Again

Four more candlesticks, time to eat some more jelly.

    Great upgrade idea! I'm gonna go see if I saved that gallon pickle jar to make one for my sister. Uh... it might need more than one stem.

    OOOh, I like that.  and maybe for a Margarita glass one could integrate a glass salt shaker. 
    (Shaker o' salt made out of an old glass.....???,spice bottle?, Christmas ornament?,  ...?)

    What's a Lucas Margarita salt container? 
    Google just gives me ads for Cabo San Lucas.  Yeah, I'd like to go but us cowboys shouldn't go into the ocean   The boots 'll pull ya right to the bottom.
    I'd love to collaborate with you on this.  If we keep it in the comments section everyone who cars can benefit, and maybe throw in another great idea, like you did.

    Kewl, I see they make Lime salt also.

    Time to prototype and test, test, test.  revise and test, test, test.
    best of all, all that testing means more empty bottles to make things from.  It's a maker's endless circle of goodness.

    This is a great, creative idea. It certainly will be a unique Christmas present for my book club, staff, and bunco Christmas parties. Now I know what to give my oldest brother and his wife for Christmas as well. Keep the ideas coming LaserLine!
