Unwind while doing something practical

You know when everyone has the same wine glass and, at some point, you don’t know which is yours anymore ? Well, this is a fun and very easy DIY project that solves that kind of mixup. Plus it is the kind of project that enables you to relax and be mindful.

Cutting cardboard and styling your handwriting allows you to focus thoughts on what you do and suddenly, you become mindful and you can relax!

Ready to unwind?

To make wine glasses name tags you will need cardboard. The colour is your choice. Here, I chose black so I can use them again in a different contexts. If you want to make them more christmassy, you can choose red or green cardboard. Whatever you prefer.

Then, take a wine or champagne glass, put it on the cardboard and circle its base with a pencil. Do that step as much has you have guests. Draw a second circle in the middle approximately the size of your glasses stand. I used a small coin to contour, so it can be a perfect circle.

Choose either your guests names or words that you find appropriate. I chose words (in French because my family speaks french) that are also wishes; like Health, Joy, Happiness, Love, Peace and Hope.

Choose either marker or crayon of a bright colour, that contrasts with the colour of your cardboard. It will be easier to read. Write the names / words down in the circles you’ve drawn, limiting them inside. Leave a blank space. Use your best handwriting.

Then, cut along the circle lines as best as you can. Take your time and constantly turn the cardboard so you cut evenly.

Cut a straight line towards the center of each circle. Cut the inner circle using the technique mentioned above.

They are ready to use! Aren’t you relaxed yet?
