Making a Redneck Wineglass or Two

My daughters boyfriend recently celebrated a birthday.  In addition to an awesome wine kit as a gift, I felt that he would greatly benefit from some redneck fancy wineglasses.  I went to the dollar store and purchased two  clear glass candle holders, some epoxy, and the rest of the supplies I had on hand.  I have some round labels that I am able to print on my printer, so I called it a Universal Redneck Beverage Glass and used some graphics from my print program.

 I used some wide mouth mason jars (500 ml) with the lids.

I mixed up the epoxy and spread it generously around the perimeter of the jar.  I centered the jar on the candle holder and let it set up overnight.  
I put the label on the lid and screwed the ring on.  If you don't have labels, you could easily cut out a circle and glue it to the lid with some fancy personal art work.  I also ran the glass through the dishwasher to ensure that I had a good bond with the epoxy.  Seemed to be very secure.  It was a hit.  He even sent me a picture to show that he was enjoying wine in it.  This would make a great gift to accompany a bottle of wine.


Cheers to great words!
