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.


  1. Ah hahaha! Redneck wine glass. That is the funniest thing! Love it.

  2. Hilarious. I know a group that might be getting these for Christmas, filled with candy. Then you could call it a Redkneck candy dish.

  3. Thanks guys. My son-in-law to be, really does use them, and he seems to like them too. What a great idea to fill them with candy.

  4. Too funny! This maybe a gift on my list this year as well! great idea!

  5. Oh My... Love It...My son-in-law will definitely be getting a set of these. Thank You...


Cheers to great words!
