Holiday Entertaining : Hostess Gifts

Craft  Wednesday is all about Entertaining today : A couple of great hostess gift and something to Serve but this will need to be planned ahead –

You can make these wine glass rings as party gifts or make ahead and take as a hostess gift. These rings I purchased but you can wrap a piece of wire around a thread spool and make your own. Place beads & charms and a clasp and you are done.
