Wood Tile Letter Wine Markers
- assorted wood tile letters (found at most craft stores or use old Scrabble tiles)
- crafting wire (we used copper colored wire)
- wire cutter
- super adhesive such as hot glue or super glue
- Begin by choosing which letters you will need. You want the first initial for each guest you want to make a wine marker for.
- Clean the back of the tile off well. This will help the wire adhere nicely and keep it in place.
- Cut a length of wire about 5 inches long. You want plenty of room to attach the tile while still being able to wrap it around the stem of the glass.
- Wrap the wire around your finger or a pencil to create the spiral. Take the top two inches of wire and wrap them into a hook that will be able to wrap the glass stem.
- Add a generous amount of glue to the back of the wood tile. Press it to the top of the spiral and hold in place until secure.
Your Wood Tile Wine Markers can now be attached to the stems of your glasses. If you are making these wine glass charms for a wedding, they are perfect souvenirs, too!
