I made these today from some wooden Bingo disks (have never played Bingo, but I guess they're markers), copper colored wire, and glass beads.  I think it's cool that they all have different numbers on them, so even colorblind people can keep an eye on their wine glass.  I only had one "I" disk, which I managed to break while drilling it, so they spell out "BONGO" instead. 



I had some disks left over and some 3/4" magnets just lying around, so naturally I put the two together.  I'm going to give the wine markers and magnets as a gift set to my sister-in-law.

Those a bingo-rific! And, I'm embarrassed to say I actually know this, but those are technically markers. Markers would be the thing the bingo players put on their cards to keep track of what's been called.  What you've got there are the little thingies that the bingo caller pulls out of the hopper to determine what the players get to cover next.  Does that make any sense? Oh well...great charms & magnets...They'd make cool earrings too.

The truth is, I've always been a fool.
