What You Will Need:

Gold Tulle Fabric (6" wide spool)

Key tags (split ring) - 1 1/4" diameter

Glue or tape


Photo paper

Safety pin or needle

Step 1:

Print out the Countdown Charm Tags template (PDF file). We suggest you print them on photo paper because the image will look sharper. If you don't have photo paper, then regular paper will be just fine. Cut out the number of tags that you will need for the number of guests that you are inviting.

Step 2:

Remove the rings from the key tags. Now glue or tape down the charm tags to the front of the key tags. Now make sure the hole is at the top of the charm tag, or they will be hanging crooked or upside-down!

Step 3:

Now using a safety pin or needle, poke a hole in the photo paper through the key tag hole. Poke a hole just big enough to thread the ring back onto the key tag.

Step 4:

Cut 2 pieces of tulle, each in 12" lengths. Bunch the pieces length-wise so you can feed them through the ring. Bring the ring to the center so you have 6" of tulle on each side of the ring. Now wrap the two ends around the stem of the glass, crossing them in the back, and bringing both ends around to the front again so the tulle can be knotted in the front. We just used a simple knot.

Now to give the tulle ends a more finished look, cut points or jagged ends to each side of the tulle. You may want to cut an inch or so off as well, so the ends aren't so long. Take a look at the picture below to get an idea of what this looks like.
