DIY wine stem labels

{by guest blogger Morgan Spenla}

Unique wine stem labels are easy to create and a fun way to personalize your party. Your guests will love the idea and have a blast picking out their party-themed drink decor. Plus, everyone will now be able to easily identify their own glass after setting it down, so you can cut back on dishes too!

DIY wine stem labels

What you’ll need:
1. Jewelry rings or elastic string (found at all jewelry stores and craft shops, such as Michael’s)
2. Various patterned papers, beads and charms.
3. For the paper wine labels, one large craft punch (any shape will do!) and one small circular punch (1/8″ is ideal).

How to create your wine stem labels:

For a beaded label, simply string your favorite beads and charms on the jewelry ring or elastic string. Don’t forget to add variety so that your guests can distinguish their glass from others—alphabet beads make this especially easy! Use monogram initials or full names for a personal touch.

Paper wine labels are super quick and simple to make using colorful, patterned paper that matches your party’s theme or colors. Use your large craft punch to create circles, squares, stars, etc. and a small 1/8″  punch for the jewelry ring hole. Dress up the label with festive extras like sequins, rhinestones, gems or glitter, and personalize with each guest’s name (if desired).

To create “wine label place cards” for a wedding or other large event, set pre-labeled wine glasses up in alphabetical rows on a table so that each guest can find his or her own name, and include their table number in the top of the glass. Or, to keep things simple, let your guests pick their own wine label from a basket by the bar.

  12. I really love glass labels! So cute. I never thought of making my own but that’s a great idea. I guess if the papers ones get wet, you can just toss them because they are paper and make new ones. What a great money saver!
