How to Make Wine Glass Charm Rings

Updated April 17, 2017

Wine glass charm rings are used for parties or gatherings where several people are drinking out of wine glasses, so guests can tell which glass belongs to them. The charms are placed around the stem of the glass, so they rest on its base, and each charm has a unique bead to distinguish it from the other glasses. A set of charms can be expensive if bought in stores, but you can easily make a set at home for less.

Slide one or more beads onto each craft ring. If the hole in the bead is large and you are concerned about the beads falling off the ring, put a drop of glue into the bead's hole immediately before sliding the bead onto the ring. Let the glue dry on the ring to keep the bead in place.

Bend the straight end of your wire craft ring into a small 90-degree angle using your needle-nose pliers, so that it securely fits into the loop on the other end of the ring. If your earrings are pre-bent or close with a clasp, skip this step.

Store your charms in a small box or bowl, and leave them next to the wine glasses at your next event so guests can choose a charm after they fill their glass.


Make sure the beads you choose have holes large enough to slip onto the rings.

Things You'll Need

  • Small metal hoop earrings or wire craft rings (about an inch in diameter)
  • Beads (varied)
  • Glue (optional)
  • Needle-nose pliers
