DIY'd: My Red-Neck wine glasses for the girls!

 I made these for my Book Club's Christmas Party which I will host tonight. 
The ladies will use them and they will also be a take home gift for the members.

All my supplies
Pint size  Ball mason jars
Liquid Nails
Candle holders
Craft paper for lids
I had to get all these labels off of the candle holders and mason jars
Put glue on the candle stick holder

  And now attach the candle holder to the bottom of the mason jar.


24 hour drying time.

......Just in.  I found out the hard way that there are a few things that were left out in the instructions on how to make these wine glasses. I let it dry for 48 hours and I was able to pull them apart easily. It's really important to choose the correct Glue! It is also important to grit the areas that your going to glue with sand paper before you glue the pieces together. So the entire steps to take are below.
  1.  Candle sticks
  2. Mason Jars
  3. E6000 Glue
  4. Sand paper
  5. Use sand paper on the top of the candle stick and the bottom of the Mason Jar
  6. Apply glue the the candlestick and join the two pieces together, work it in so it is level and no air bubbles
  7. Let dry for 48 hours
  8. Finished

This is a glue that you can use for the glasses, it set really good within the first few hours.
 I was so pissed because I had some of this glue on hand already but I went and bought three
other glues. You really need a Glass glue but I was not able to locate at any of my local stores.
It can be ordered online and it seems as though those glues are dishwasher safe.

Labels for my lids 
The finished product!


The glasses in action!
