Copper Wine Charm

Shoutout to the man who lets me steal his tools on a whim (and helped me start my own collection!)- Happy Birthday Fasha! Thanks for letting me watch you make helping me with this project!


About a day before my parents were to host Christmas Eve, my mom hinted that it would be so nice to have labeled wine charms for the guest who will be arriving. Their friends made these copper wine charms for them a few week prior


I had the stamps, and fasha had the copper, so we joined forces (I say that lightly because well...I did more monitoring and picture taking than anything...) to make our guests some charms. We used some scrap copper wiring and tubes to makeshift these with what we had laying around the house.







First, we tried to weld the wire onto the copper plate, after a few failed attempts we took out the blow torch and lit them up- a much faster result! Once they were attached, we filed out the edges and corners for finished look and opened the wine bottles! Now we won't have any trouble locating our vino after a few glasses :) It's a Christmas Miracle!



Have a great weekend peeps! I'll be posted up in Boston for the next week for my Masters program- I can't believe it's my last trip out there before Graduation! woo time flies! While I'm out- make sure you check out the right side of the website to follow this blog :) Thanks for the support!
