Ideas 4 Making Coffee Mug Charms at Aug. 8th Craft Night Plus Camp

. at . 6 comments

 Coffee mug charms? Yep. They are like wine glass charms except for coffee mugs. Isn’t this a cool idea? Sandra came up with it.
Wine glass charms are also called drink ID tags, stemware bracelets and wine glass markers.
Below are some ideas, directions, supply lists and photos. Have fun perusing, pick a project, buy the supplies, and come prepared to join Sandra and maybe even Lynette in making charms for your coffee mugs or stemware.
  1. Go here (notmartha.org) for the supply list and directions. These are made on a hoop earring base.
  2. Craftbits.com has directions using memory wire or jewelry wire.
  3. Save-on-crafts.com has the cutest charms using multiple beads.
  4. ChocolateAndZuchinni.com has directions also. Do take a look as these charms have a distinctly different look. This is especially good for those who don’t like the little bead look.
  5. BeadWork.About.Com has charms with initials. Cute for a wedding reception, graduation party (hint, hint) or even a posh shower.
  6. Black-Purl-Magazine.Com has directions for crocheting wine charms. Who knew you could crochet with wire?
  7. These shrinky dinky charms from LjcFyi.com are soooo cute! What about printing actual photos of people on the shrinky dink paper.
  8. How about using electronic components? “It’s an easy five-minute project with elegant results,” says EvilMadScientist.Com.
  9. Polyclay can be used to make veggie charms (or coffee beans). Go here (hgtv.com) for supplies, directions and photo.
  10. ABigSlice.Com suggests using buttons, beads, watch parts, and old costume jewelry.
  11. Copper disks can be etched into one of a kind markers. DIY.Com has the scoop on this.
  12. MiyCreations.Com uses thick photo paper for a charm that is novel. A slit is cut in the charm so that it can clip around the stem. Obviously this cute charm is not meant to be used multiple times.

Note: Want to buy some? Go here to Heathers-Store.Com to buy these CUTE fimo clay snowmen charms. It’s never too soon for snowmen. Again, Hint! Hint!

    Yes, the internet does present a never-ending source of ideas. LMK if you’ll be making glass charms from any of these sites.

  • Polymer clay would be the right way to go Lynette! Not that I’m biased or anything! LOL

    Marcia, Thanks for visiting. You know what’s so funny is that I spent quite a bit of time on your site today. I kept saying to myself, “okay. One more post and then I’ll go do homework.” I love your craft and food ideas!
