I made these bottle cap wine charms to have at my house when I host book club. We meet once a month to have dinner together and discuss the latest book we've read. I will admit there are times where there is more sharing our lives and our wine that discussing the book but if it brings us together that is all that matters. You can make these DIY Wine Charms for your family or to give as gifts if you don't have a book club!
Our book club has been getting together for over eight years now and we have shared everything together joy, loss, sickness in many forms. Every Christmas we put aside the book and Bev cooks us a beautiful dinner to celebrate our friendship and the holidays. Her table is always beautifully decorated with Christmas China and these large wine glasses. I love a large glass when I'm drinking wine it just feels good in my hand and quite frankly it means fewer trips to the fridge for a refill.
wine book club loves a festive cocktail and it's always fun to try something new, you never know when you might find a new favorite. Here was the stash after everyone arrived last night for dinner.
We poured a glass of wine, ate a few hor devours, and caught up on our day with each other before dinner. There is no better way to celebrate life and friends than with these ladies.
My favorite wine glasses are my Auden wine glasses from Libbey's Signature Collection. They are not overly expensive and the quality is great. These wine glasses are weighted just right so you avoid tips and they are not thin so they don't easily break either. I hand wash my wine glasses because they don't fit in my dishwasher and they hit each other in the sink when I'm washing them some other glasses I have bought would break at the slightest tap.

How to Make Bottle Cap Wine Charms
Wine charms are an easy way for everyone to keep track of their glass when you have several people around. I made these with just a few simple items from the craft store and put each ladies initial on them. Since we have 3 K's and 2 C's I varied the color of the scrapbook paper circles so that no two are alike.
- Flat Bottle Caps with or without holes. If you get them without holes you will need a metal hole punch like the one you see above
- Ear Wire Beading Hoops
- 1″ Epoxy Stickers for Bottle Caps
- 1″ Circle Punch
- Scrapbook paper
- Letter Stickers (optional)
Take your flat bottle caps and using the metal hole punch make a hole close to the edge.
Using your 1″ circle craft punch, punch out your scrapbook paper backgrounds. If you want to put initials on them apply your letter stickers to the middle of each circle. Glue a paper circle into each bottle cap and then place the epoxy sticker on top.
The epoxy sticker seals the paper in and protects it from spills. Do not soak these in a sink of water, if they get dirty just wipe them with a damp cloth. Now you are ready to put the wire hoops through the hole and hang your bottle cap wine charms on your favorite wine glasses.
