Have you ever put your drink down at a party and when you came back to it, it’s surrounded by identical looking glasses and you have no idea which one is yours? Well, these practical Wine glass collars which slip around the stem of the wine glass will take care of that First world problem 😉
There’s two cut out styles and a plain one included in the free file. (links below)
Cut the plain design from lots of different patterned papers or simply cut them from a single coloured paper or card to match the party decor. Either Hand write the names after cutting or use sketch pens prior to cutting. Just a tip though, it may be best to do any writing with a permanent ink. If there’s any condensation on the glass and the tag gets wet it may cause the ink to run a little.
If you’re using the cut out styles instead, use a different coloured or patterned card or paper for each to let your guests identify their glasses that way. Which ever option is used, it’s a great way to use up those leftover scraps of card and paper.
I cut mine from plain scrapbook paper which is thicker than copy paper but not as heavy as card stock. I made them at around 2 1/2 inches but they can easily be resized to whatever size is needed.

Thanks for sharing the cut files! I’ll be using these in the future for sure.

Meredith @ unOriginalMom says
this is such a clever idea! I like it so much better than the kitschy wine charms you see everywhere. Lovely!
Thanks Meredith. I had those wine charms once but they all went rusty/corroded in the drawer – must have stored them still damp!
Sam @ DIY Just Cuz says
This is such an original idea & a great solution for keeping your own wine glass throughout a whole party! Pinning this for DIY Party ideas!
Isn’t it a great idea? – alas I can’t take credit for the original idea though. I have seen similar around on web which inspired these.
Thanks for the pin!
Thank you, I love this 🙂
Thanks Nancy, glad you like them 🙂
Angela @Little Blue's Room says
What a great idea! Simple yet effective without dishing out a bunch of money for the kind that can be found in stores. Love it!
Thanks Angela, Economical is always good – even more so a great way to use scraps.
That is an excellent idea! I think I may make some just to keep around the house for impromptu parties…
Ha Ha! Impromptu parties – Great idea – might as well be prepared 🙂
Emily @ Two Purple Couches says
Pam, I LOVE this idea! So very smart, and I love how you could customize them for a special event or party. Already pinned 🙂
Thanks so much Emily. Glad you like it and thanks for the pin!
Michelle from Weekend Craft says
I love a great way to distinguish a drink at a party! Even better when its DIY!
Thanks Michelle. I just need to have a party now so I can use some!
Tracy @theconservativemommy says
This is a great idea! I wish I had these when I was making glasses for my wedding party!
Thanks Tracy, May be make some for an anniversary party instead then 🙂
What a fun idea! I think I’m going to use this for my stemmed water glasses. Thanks for sharing at #homemattersparty
Thanks Kristi. Great way to jazz up the water glassed too!
Karen Marie Kedzuch says
A beautiful way to identify your wine glass. As usual nice work Pam.
