Estimated cost: Varies. 

The estimated costs for these wine charms varies greatly depending on which style you make, which beads you choose, and the quantity you need.   For this project, I purchased everything from Michael’s, and the approximate cost was $3-4 per charm.  If you’re making more than just a few charms, it’s better to buy your supplies in bulk.  The bulk cost can be as low as 75 cents per charm! Shop for bulk supplies online from Fire Mountain Gems and Artbeads.

If you have questions about where to the materials, directions, or cost, please let me know!

Thanks!
