summer wine charms

Did you know you could iron onto wood? Try it out and make these sparkling Summer Wine Charms for your next outdoor (or tropical-themed) party! What a cute way for your friends to identify their drinks!
Step 1

First, add water to a water brush. Gently squeeze a little water onto a paint pan to water-down the color. Pick up some color with your water brush and paint a wood circle. Repeat for each wood circle in desired colors from the watercolor paint set. Set aside to dry.
TIP: To change colors, squeeze water through the brush as well as wipe the brush back and forth onto a paper towel to flush previous color.

Step 2

Now, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™. Adjust the size of the design, if needed, then click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 3

Mirror the images in the left panel and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 4

Place heat transfer vinyl (HTV), shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select the correct material and follow the prompts to cut out your design.

Step 5

Unload your mat and then use scissors to cut your design from the HTV 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 design so each icon is on an individual carrier piece.

Step 6

Preheat your EasyPress Mini™ to the medium setting.

Step 7

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

Step 8

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

Step 9

Place your EasyPress Mini™ on top of the design, apply firm pressure and constant movement over your design for 40 seconds.

Step 10

Allow it to cool so it is warm to touch and peel off the carrier sheet.

Step 11

Punch a hole in the top of your wood circles with hole punch pliers.
TIP: If you do not have hole punch pliers, you can also use a large safety pin. Place your circles on your working surface and push a 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 12

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 13
Now, thread three bicone crystals onto a hoop earring, slide onto a jump ring attached to a wood circle and then three more bicone crystals.
