halloween wine charms

Did you know you could cut wood with your Cricut® machine? You totally can! Your friends will LOVE these Halloween Wine Charms to identify their drink! Make them as gifts or use them at your Halloween party!
Step 1

First, click here to the design in Cricut® Design Space™.


Step 2
Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.
Step 3

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for black mat, to reverse your iron-on images.

Step 4

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the material for your first layer.

TIP: When working with multiple material types, such as in this project, be sure to pay close attention to the left panel on your preview screen to know which layer is cutting and make material changes when necessary (Everyday Iron-On, Medium Cardstock, Basswood).

Step 5

Place the first material onto your cutting mat, load the mat into your Cricut® machine and then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

TIP: Design Space™ will prompt you to what cutting tools need to be loaded. Remember, the iron-on material is placed, shiny-side down, on your cutting mat.


Step 6

Once your machine is done cutting each mat, use scissors to cut your design from the iron-on material roll. Next, use your weeder tool to remove all the excess material around and inside the icons. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheet, which is slightly sticky. Also, cut apart the strip so each icon is on an individual carrier piece.

TIP: For the cardstock, carefully peel the excess material from around the cards; then, carefully remove the cards.

Step 7

Paint the top of your basswood circles with glow-in-the-dark paint. Let dry. Repeat for a second coat and let dry.

Step 8

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.

TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress™, for temperature and times or click here for an interactive guide. You can also use an iron to press your material. Just follow the instructions included in the iron-on material packaging.

Step 9

Place your basswood circles on top of your EasyPress™ mat and then preheat the surface for 5 seconds.


Step 10

Place each design, so it’s sticky-side down, onto a circle basswood piece. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed.

TIP: Be sure to iron your designs onto the glow-in-the-dark side.

Step 11

Place your EasyPress™ on top of the design, apply the appropriate pressure for your material and press the time button. Once it beeps, remove your EasyPress™. If your material is the warm peel type, you may go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet. If your material is a cool peel type, let it cool completely before removing the carrier sheet.

Step 12

Place your basswood circles on your working surface and push a large safety pin through the top to pierce a hole. Lift the circle and run the safety pin through the hole a few times to smooth it out and to make the hole big enough to add a jump ring.

Step 13

Add a jump ring to each basswood circle.

TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.


Step 14

Fold the elongated semi-circles on the white card on the score line.

Step 15

Attach the white card over on top of the back card, centered, with a tape runner.

Step 16

Now, thread three bicone crystals onto a hoop earring, slide on a jump ring with a basswood circle and then three more bicone crystals.

Step 17

Slide the straight end of the hoop earring through the hole on the elongated semi-circles on the card above the correct description and then through the loop on the other end of the hoop earring. Use a chain nose plier to slightly bend the straight end of the hoop earring, about ½" from the end, to secure it through the loop.

Step 18

Repeat Steps 16-17 for the remaining basswood circles.
