Wine Charm Tutorial with Free Printables

Free Pintable DIY Mod Podge Wine Charms Cheltenham Road for Mod Podge RocksAs I teased on my Friday Blog Post my latest Mod Podge Rocks Tutorial is up and ready for review.

These wine charms were easy to make (I used Mod Podge’s “Podgeable Shapes”) and I think they’d be a fun project or gift.New York Subway Art Wine Charms Chelteham Road Tutorial available via Mod Podge Rocks

As a matter of fact I’m going to work on making them into an official Cheltenham Road product!

I designed the subway graphics and they are available for a free download over on the Mod Podge Rocks site.  There is a black and white option, a white and black option and then just a set of blanks (all sized for the various Podgeable shapes) so you can add your own text.Tutorial Preview Simple Subway Art DIY Mod Podge Wine Charms Cheltenham Road for Mod Podge RocksBut ideas for other graphics are pouring out of my mind.

I thought it would be fun to do book covers and The Muse and I began riffing on ideas.

Four wine charms to a set. Classic novels would workClassic Book Coversand then, maybe a fifth one, you know, for the Designated DriverSense and SensiibilityI’m excited about this one and can’t wait to get designing.

In the meantime, if you’re keen on making some of your own head on over to Mod Podge Rocks for the full tutorial.

About cheltenhamroad

I’ve been surrounded by amazingly creative people my whole life. My mom can, and does, make anything. The family has on occasion speculated that she just whipped up my dad one day when she discovered some left over fabric and stuffing. My three sisters have mad skills ranging from needlework to cooking to out and out ART. My father’s desk when I was growing up had a model train set going around it, oh, and he made that desk-from scratch. I’m the youngest and, as you can imagine, it’s a hard series of acts to follow. Truth be told, I’ve spent many, many years suppressing the creative instincts I learned at home. But I realized (rather late in life) that few things bring me more joy than making and creating. For the longest time when I went to stores I didn’t think, “I want that” I thought, “I can make that.” And, with a deep breath and a leap, I’ve started on a very new, kinda scary path. I’ve given up my steady, dependable (dull!) corporate life to spend my days happily humming away in my garage designing, creating, painting, decoupaging and sawing and, since this blog will be an honest take on things, there is also a fair amount of tripping, spilling and swearing. Through this blog I hope to share with you the struggles and (hopefully) triumphs of a very non-businessy business person. I also hope to make this blog a resource for people who like to work with their hands and who are, like me, always looking at things and thinking “I could make that!” I’ve lived many places since I left Cheltenham Road; I currently live in Los Angeles California. So, with this preamble- Welcome to Cheltenham Road! Please come on over and make yourself comfortable – the place is always open.

  1. Love, love, love the book ones (of course)! I think it should be fairly easy to remember your title for the night! Great idea for other types of bottle labels too…

  2. And when you cannot remember your book title…well, you’ll have to do with Perrier for the rest of the evening. Just sayin’.

  3. OMGee, I want the book collection–All 5!!!! My favorites!!!

    I’ve made wine charms from modern “shrinky-dink” type of craft plastic, and from colorful craft clay and rubber stamped images on them–and then glittered them.

    • thanks Denise. Shrinky dinks! – brings back fond memories of childhood (another example of why, perhaps, the other children thought me odd) – didn’t realize they still existed!

      • check your favorite craft store–I think you can use them with printers, too! They came back in the past decade or so.

        I found a cute project online, but I didn’t want to share because it’s from another blogger and I don’t know the proper protocol. 🙂

      • I sent a PM on facebook with the link.

  4. They are great as usual, but who even knew there was such a thing as a “Podgeable Shape?”
    P.S, I think you were into the wine, the top pic says “free pintable” LOL

    • Argh! Well, I guess I’m more of a beer-guy. (thanks for the catch – I really need a proofreader or perhaps a dictionary).
      PS: I occasionally worry that, sadly, I have become a podgeable shape. Must get back to the gym!

  5. I, too, want a set of classic novels. In fact I want 2 sets. I will contact you properly before my next book group meeting. You could also do trashy romance novels or other genres.

  6. You nailed this!! I almost didn’t click through the email because all wine charms are, to me, too girly. But then I thought about you and your style and I was curious. Wow, I’m super glad I looked!! I really love these!! I co-own a youth theater and think I’ll create some sets of our past shows for the other crazy ladies I work with!! Thanks so much!! A standing ovation to you!!! 😄
