DIY Redneck wine glasses

I came across these on Etsy the other day and thought they were hysterical and perfect for an upcoming Christmas party. I couldn't justify spending $10-$20 per glass though. Here's how to make them yourself for just a few dollars.

Here's what you'll need.
Mason Jars
Dollar store candle sticks
E600 glue (or any super strong glue or epoxy)
Colorful beads (optional)
Rubbing alcohol

First sand the bottom of the mason jars and the top rim of the candle stick, just enough to rough it up a bit.

Then use a little rubbing alcohol to clean the sandpaper dust up

Next, I cut up a few of those marti gras type necklaces and put the beads in the top of the candle stick. I found mine at 5 below, they were 4 for $1. This step is optional but I think it looks cute.

Put a thick ring of E6000 glue around the rim of the candle stick holder.

Stick them to the bottom of the mason jars and leave them upside down for 24 hours to dry.

Here's the finished product! It's that easy! If you really want to redneck it up you could make wine glass charms out of beer bottle tops. Have fun with it!
