The Christmas Dinner Party Box is out, and that means we have an insider post on how to DIY these sweet ornament wine tags!
In case you missed it, we launched our holiday Party Box over at the shop and it’s a full of pretty little details to make your Christmas entertaining as painless – and Pinterest perfect – as can be! We know that planning a party during the holidays can be stressful, and we’re here to make sure that your biggest worry this Christmas is what time to break out the bubbly.
And of course, because we’re such darlings we’re sharing a little behind the scenes, Party Box insider information with you! Today’s post is my favourite little detail from the holiday box. Sometimes its the small things that make people talk, and that’s exactly what I think about wine tags. I have been known to spend more time choosing wine tags than normal people would spend choosing a dinner party menu. It’s a sickness. But really, what’s cuter than having funny little tags at a cocktail party, or sweet ones at a bridal shower, OR ornament tags at a holiday party?
These tags are super easy to make and are perfect for holiday entertaining! Here’s how you can make your own:
First, you need some ornaments. Size wise you want to keep them about the size of a dime just because you don’t want it to weigh your glass down. I got these ones at Michaels, but the dollarstore has cute ones too.
You’ll also need these little earring pieces. You can get them in the jewelry section of the craft store. I can’t remember what they’re called but you can see what they look like. Grab some pliers for the ends. You’ll also need a small paintbrush and black paint.
First, paint numbers on your ornaments. If you have six different colours (and you’re making six tags) then you can skip this part, but the idea is you need to give your guests a way to identify their wine glass. I only had three colours so I used the numbers, but you can get creative, or personalize each tag for an inexpensive custom touch!
Using your pliers, bend one end of the hoop away from the other end. You want to create an angle that still fits into the hoop’s fastener, but won’t slip out on it’s own.
And you’re done! Didn’t I tell you, the easiest project ever, but such a fun holiday touch. Happy crafting!
