Redneck Wine Glass Tutorial

I am sure some of you have seen these. I hadn't seen them before but I did an Internet search and you can buy them in sets of two.  I love mason jars, in fact I am hosting a shower for a friend that was inspired by mason jars.  We use mason jars at out birthday parties with striped why can't we use them as wine glasses.  While we were in Tybee Island I saw these glasses in a shop and decided that I had to make them. 

This is what you will need:

A box of half pint mason jars. Walmart sells them, 12 for 6 dollars and some change.

12 (or however many you are making) glass taper candle holders from Dollar Tree


Loctite glass glue (dishwasher safe), found at Home Depot

There are only four simple steps to adhere the candle holder and mason jar together. 
1. Flip the mason jar over and apply glue to the bottom.
2.  Apply glue to the top of the candle holder.
3. Wait 10 minutes for the glue to become tacky.
4. Place the mason jar on top of the candle holder

12 redneck wine glasses can be made for about 20 dollars, or 1.66 a piece

Let me know if you try to make them, I absolutely love mine!!!


  1. Nice to be your friends. Your blog contains useful information. Many thanks

  2. Thanks for the tut. I saw these yesterday at a craft bazaar and fell in love with them... used as a candy dish. on a shelf..

  3. Do they seem to stay together pretty well after they are washed with that glue?

    1. I changed my directions from the other glue and now use Loctite mentioned above, I haven't had any problems.

  4. Use E-6000 or an Epoxy glue and Hand wash- Make sure to take some 100 grit sand paper to the top of the candle holder and the bottom of the jar- scuff it up a little- it will make the glue adhear better
