New Year's Eve Crafts

We have some really great ideas for champagne/wine charms that you might like if you are having a party this year.

Countdown Champagne/Wine Charms: These countdown to New Years Eve wine charms are a great way for your guests to keep track of which glass is theirs. And then when it's time to countdown the final seconds to the new year, each guest can cheer out "their second" in the countdown as they raise their glass to toast the New Year.

Star Bead Champagne/Wine Charms: These star bead wine charms are so easy and quick to make, and are bold and showy to brighten up your guests' glasses. As you can see, we used bold colored star beads, but you can also find metallic star beads which would really add some fun sparkle to this design.

Look for our next newsletter, which will be e-mailed out on January 15th.
