I am happy to share a craft with you that I did recently. One that will save you money and look cool too.
I’m not a wine snob at all, it all tastes just ok to me, and serves just about one purpose. In fact, all we drink out of are mason jars anyway. You can take the boy out of Alabama but you can’t take the Alabama out of the boy. My wife is right there with me drinking her lemonade out of a mason jar as well. That’s our fine china, or hillbilly crystal as I call it.
I thought I’d hunt around for some wine glasses for us, because after all, we can’t always drink wine from a cup… or can we? After a few searches, I found a way to have the best of both worlds for us….
Introducing the Redneck Wine Glass…
Glass Candlestick(s) (found at Jo-Ann Fabrics)
Mason Jar(s) (found at Jo-Ann Fabrics)
Glass Glue (found at Jo-Ann Fabrics)
Super cheap and super classy, err country.
Rough the top edges of the candlesticks with the sandpaper.
Line with glass glue and press to the bottom of your mason jar. I chose a medium sized but fit to your liking.
Make sure it’s centered and press together for about 15 seconds and leave to cure over night.
Simple, creative and country.
Impress your guests with your hillbilly crystal and serve some down-home punch, Texas tea, or fruit wine.
