Guest Blogger: Thanksgiving Wine Glass Charms

This holiday season, I am giving you the gift of new blogs to read!  Yep, throughout the holiday season, I will have guest bloggers come here and share a little bit of their awesomeness so you will have fun new blogs to read for the new year.  Today, we start with our first guest blogger, Katie!

**********************************************************

Hello Just Us Four readers! I’m Katie from Snap-On Buttons and I am so pleased to be a guest blogger! Thanksgiving is perhaps my favorite holiday and if your like me, there’s always a full house. I’m here to show you how to make these super cute Thanksgiving wine glass charms.

I hate always having to second guess where I put down my drink at parties. That’s where wine glass charms come in handy. Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out charms using their Thanksgiving charms. I really liked these charms because their subtle and inexpensive.

 I cut out the same charms in different card stock colors, so guests have more options and diversity among the charms.

To make the rings for the wine charms, I used gold wire since it matches my Thanksgiving decor the best. However, it could easily be customized to match yours as well. Using wire cutters, I cut wire about 2 inches long and wrapped it around a soda bottle cap.

Slip the charm onto the wire and you have a super cute, easy, and practical craft for Thanksgiving!

I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season! I hope you’ll stop by Snap-on Buttons soon to see what I’ve been up to!

Those charms are super cute! I know I always hate losing my glass at parties too so this is definitely an idea I would use.  Thanks so much Katie!

Spaghetti Turned Decoration

Happy Thanksgiving week!  Can you believe that, in a few short days, we’ll be sitting down to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner?!  Time is certainly flying by this year.

I mentioned last week that, this year, I would be hosting Thanksgiving for the first time ever.  It is a small crowd {just us and my parents} so I haven’t really done much decoration wise.  I was sitting in the dining room though and decided it needed just a little something extra besides our table decorations.

I started with some pasta sauce jars…Barilla to be exact.

After removing the labels and sending them through the dishwasher, I measured my scrapbook paper to fit around them.

I cut all the strips of scrapbook paper and taped them around the jars.

Then, I filled each jar with this gorgeous natural material I found at a little store during our anniversary weekend away.

Nothing like a quick and super cheap project to start off the week :)
