DIY Disco Ball Wine Charms {New Year's Eve}


These disco ball wine charms only take minutes to make, which is great considering most of us are probably still recovering from the hustle & bustle of the Christmas season.
 First, you'll want to gather up your little disco balls.  I found my gold beauties in the Christmas sale aisle at Michael's. They're practically giving away their holiday items for free!  They're packaged as vase fillers, however, little styrofoam balls covered with sequined ribbon will work too.

With a large embroidery needle or wooden skewer start poking holes through the center of half of your disco balls {leave the other half unpunctured!}. Then take two of your hole punched disco balls {I used various sizes} & string them onto some pretty ribbon.

Then tie your ribbon around the base of your wine glass & cut off the ribbon tails. If you want to add more disco balls to your charm {it helps it look more festive!} then grab a few of the non-hole punched balls and adhere them to the ones already on the ribbon with some hot glue.

There you have it! Nothing like a little glitz & glamour.
I'm thinking these would even look great strung around the neck of a wine bottle for a hostess gift!

By the way, I'm writing this tutorial on my brand spanken new laptop! It was an early birthday gift from the hubz.  What a week! First, the silhouette machine and now a new computer. I'm not sure what's up with all this spoiling but I have my suspicions he's going to ask me to donate like a kidney or something soon. Or maybe my brain....I catch him every now & then admiring my intelligence. Yep, that must be it. He wants my brain.


Wishing you all the joys of the new year!
