I love me some wine!  Grin I made some wine accessories awhile ago and thought I would share pics!

Wine Bottle cover:




Wine Glass Charms:


Hubby and I are currently attempting to make wine out of wild grapes that were growing on my parents land. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

*Edit*
I am adding this paperweight in this post too. Not sure where else it would go. I used a candle plate and resin and a pinup pic to make the paperweight. I am thinking about making more. This one turned out really neat!


Comments and constructive criticism welcome.

Cool idea to use the candle plate for a paperweight. What are the charms on the bottle?

Thanks! I am experimenting with doing the same with old glass ashtrays. I have no other use for them, but I think they will work for this purpose too. I made all the charms with different kinds of beads and seashels. The beads are a mixture of glass, plastic and wooden ones that I had in my stash. The colors are all inspired by the sea (blue, green, and coral).

hi,  Wow!  I especially like your paper weight.  How did you make it?  I bought a paperweight kit today and it just wasn't what I wanted.  I also looked at the resin supplies, but they were rather costly since I'm not sure if it would work for my project.

My DH mentioned after a trip to NYC when he toured the national bank or something like that.  During the tour, he got some shredded money and he said that it would make a paper weight.  Ahh - Christmas idea.  Any ideas?

thanks.  catdaddytn

Well, I used a glass candle plate for this one. I've also used old glass ashtrays. I printed the image on regular printer paper and modge podged the words on it I cut a circle to fit. I placed it on the plate and poured resin over the whole thing. Then I let it cure for a couple of days. Resin can be expensive if you don't know what to look for. I use a brand called Easy Cast. The Easy Cast comes in two parts and you just mix it in equal parts. The other resin is hard to control! I have found a 16 oz. kit of Easy Cast online for as little as $11. 16 oz makes a lot of stuff! I buy inexpensive stuff like the candle plates, ashtrays, etc. at dollar stores and thrift stores. I bet the shredded money would look really cool in a paperweight like that! If you don't want to use resin, I think you could probably stuff a candle plate like thingy with the money and glue felt over the back. That should work!
