Discussion on Redneck Wine Glass

Subject: Craft show report
Survived my show this past weekend. Great crowd, but they were buying small stuff. I made over a $1,000 last year at this show and only $600 this week. HOWEVER, considering the most expensive item I sold was $12, some painted ornaments and a few painted teacher gifts, the rest adds up to to LOT of gag gifts and stocking stuffers. I have a 4x6 peg board full and my booth is on a corner at the door. They stop at my booth first and just ooh and ahh at the gag gifts. They don't mind spending a $1 or two. Most bought a minimum of $10. The man in the booth next to me sold "redneck wine glass" for $10 each. It consisted of a glass candle holder (fron DT) with a mason jar glued to the top. He threw in the lid to make it a "to go" glass. He sold 25 on Saturday, 55 on Sunday and took orders for me. He included a certificate of authenticity (all misspelled). I got tired of hearing his selling spiel. I may make some for next year to sell if he's not there.

seems that the gag gifts are popular and a cheap gift for people on low budget the red neck wine glass is a cute idea Did he have a poem to go with them? if not you can ~ONE JUMP UP ON HIM ~
[> Re: Craft show report -- Mary, 01:59:40 11/25/10 Thu 
He had a "Certificate of Authenticity" with misspelled words. Maybe someone can come up with something cuttier for me.
[> Re: Craft show report -- GeorgiaGirl, 18:54:42 11/25/10 Thu 
These sound soooo cute. I am curious....what size jar did
he use? Also, can you remember anything about the wording of the Certificate of Authenticity? Do you think the mispelled words were intentional?
Sorry for so many questions, but inquiring minds would love to know.....

The Redneck Wine Glass is a pint size mason jar attached to a glass stem and measures just over 9" tall.

Thank you, Mary, for the information. These are neat. I live in an area that suggests "red-neck" styles of living and these would be great for our tourist shoppers.
I am not that big on "red-neck gag gifts" but this one is

Does anyone have a poem to go with the redneck wine glass or can someone make one? These are cute!
[> Re: Craft show report -- Mary, 00:47:02 11/29/10 Mon 
I thought it was a really cute idea. Place the "wineglass" in a plain brown bag and tie with jute, string or ribbon.

This is the link to Mary's thread about the red neck wine glass.
A few were asking for a poem, and I'd love one as well.
Here's the link with a picture.http://www.etsy.com/listing/61008705/sa ... wine-glass

Here is something that may help our poets come up with a cute tag to put on the Red Neck Wine Glass........The Wine Glass comes with it's very own lid for saving, shaking and no spilling!
Pour in your favorite wine, beer or, yes, even iced tea and it's time to get the party started! Drink up!!!
Hand wash only
You don't have to be redneck to appreciate the uniqueness of this great wine glass,

I had thought about making them in sets and crudely etching Bride and Groom on them, but can't figure how to spell in "Redneck".
[> Re: Poem Request Red Neck Wine Glass -- ginnyp, 23:20:39 11/27/10 Sat  bride and groom or couple would be his'n and her'n
[> Re: Poem Request Red Neck Wine Glass -- PattyWV, 23:32:37 11/27/10 Sat  Maybe use it as a vase when out of booze.

thank you ginnyp and JS for the spelling ideas.
[> Re: Poem Request Red Neck Wine Glass -- Mary, 00:40:07 11/29/10 Mon 
The one I saw came with a "Certificate of Authenticity" with all the words misspelled and talked about "this here redneck wineglass......" He sold them for $10, sold at least 80 and took orders for more when he ran out. I would love to sell these next year.
[> Re: Poem Request Red Neck Wine Glass -- PattyWV (), 05:34:22 11/29/10 Mon 
I did a search with no luck.
I did come across where someone added colored yarn to tie on as a glass marker.
I have a pink camo tag and a regular camo tag
ready to go.
[> Re: Poem Request Red Neck Wine Glass -- PattyWV, 19:06:53 11/29/10 Mon 
Still hoping for a poem.
I keep thinking about the don't drink and drive saying.Don't drink and drive - you might hit a pothole and spill your drink.
Not going to happen with a lid.

The 'Hillbilly Glass/Redneck Wineglass is so cute...Do you know which glue a person would use to glue the jar to the base? Would it be E6000? Thanks for your assistance...and happy crafting.

I just saw the one on etsy sold at $5.00
That's what I was going to charge too. http://www.etsy.com/listing/61008705/sa ... wine-glass
Also saw a redneck wine glass holder.
The working end of a garden rake hung on the wall and the glasses in between the tines....lol
[> Re: Hillbilly glass -- Shirttails, 14:36:06 12/02/10 Thu 
My lucky day! I was in a flea market store and they had the candle holders that said they were 2 % crystal..haha..but they were only 50 cents each. I bought 14 and there were lots more. Wish I knew if they'd sell out or not. Now I'm on a treasure hunt for the jars. This will be a round to it project for spring...
[> Re: Hillbilly glass -- PattyWV, 14:50:24 12/02/10 Thu 
They are really simple to make.
I put together a dozen in no time.
Use E6000 glue to glue the candlestick to the bottom of the pint canning jar.
I'll post a pic later.
I added some embelishment to mine.

Subject: Is there a Redneck wine glass poem yet?
I've been trying to check back to see if anyone has come up with a poem for the Redneck Wine Glass. I would love to have a tag with poem for it.
ALSO, what glue would be best to use to connect the two pieces of glass?
Re: Is there a Redneck wine glass poem yet? -- PattyWV, 08:55:01 12/01/10 Wed 
No poem,but a tag was shared..
Check here (deleted Voy link since tag will be included in this thread).
Re: Is there a Redneck wine glass poem yet? -- Craftmaster, 10:02:50 12/02/10 Thu 
This is what I've come up with so far.............
I found some small rounded jelly jars with grapes on the sides that I used for the top. They also have the lid and screw top with a "fruit" motif. For the wine glass "charm" I was thinking of using a bread tie with a button.
Can someone help tweek this?? It's early in the morning and my creative juices aren't flowing yet - but I had a start......... Redneck Wine Glass
This here’s a wine glass jest fer you
y’all can drink your vino or some brew.
Attached is a tag to let ya know whoz is whoz

Subject: My Hillbilly/RedNeck Wine Glass and Tag for Hillbilly Wine
I have a show tomorrow but wanted to share how mine turned out.
The ladies version I added the half marbles in pin/clear and red, used a pink camo ribbon and tag.
The guys I used the little tree branch circles from Walmart in the same area as the marbles.I used the regular camo tag.
I added a Hillbilly Wine recipe on a bare foot ; ) Photos:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v727/ ... tcard2.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v727/ ... 260640.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v727/ ... 260639.jpg

These are adorable! I wish mine looked as good. I also have a show tomorrow, I hope we're not at the same place. Mine have a little tag with a silly hillbilly dog with a pipe in his mouth and I tied twine around the neck with little beads on the end of the twine. I'm charging $5 each and have 10 to sell. I'll let you all know how mine sell in eastern Kansas.
Thanks for posting these pictures - gives me time to develop the idea for next year's shows.

I'm charging $5.00 too.
I'm in West Virginia.
Craft show is in Grafton,Taylor County.
I haven't heard of anyone selling these in the area, but who knows.
There may be others selling them as well.
Good luck at your show.
I have 12,if they don't sell I'm sure my redneck friends will love them : )
[> Re: My Hillbilly/RedNeck Wine Glass and Tag for Hillbilly Wine -- Mary, 17:39:08 12/03/10 Fri 
Like I said before, the man in the booth next to me sold these for $10, sold 80 and took orders for more. He pushed them as "dirty Santa" gifts. Good luck!!

Kakeladee, did you get your wine glasses finished yet? I have mine glued together and ready to glue on the beads but I am still uncertain as to what to tie around the neck so hoping for an idea.
[> Re: My Hillbilly/RedNeck Wine Glass and Tag for Hillbilly Wine -- kakeladee, 10:57:18 12/05/10 Sun 
I have to get a tag made and do some beading. My printer needs black ink so I have to go get some for that.i hope to post pictures soon.

As you have probably guessed I am having problems posting my pics. I could not find any camo ribbon . All I could find was camo duct tape. Being from the south I know red necks duct tape everything. So I figured I'd improvise. LOL Army Redneck Wine Glasses http://i753.photobucket.com/albums/xx18 ... CI0319.jpg http://i753.photobucket.com/albums/xx18 ... CI0317.jpg

Re: my elephant painting -- Carmelita, 20:11:15 12/10/10 Fri 
Great job on both the glasses and the elephant painting. You are so talented and I have never seen camo duct tape. Do you think that is just a southern thing/product? I also love how you personalized them :O)
Re: my elephant painting -- kakeladee, 20:08:18 12/12/10 Sun 
Thank you very much.
It probably is a southern thing not sure I just know when it's broke out comes the duct tape. LOL
I could not find the camo ribbon so I saw the camo duct tape at walmart and decided to improvise.
