I make these every year twice a year, I do a craft show at the Niagara Grape and Wine Festival and for X-mas. This is a grape leaf wine glass holder that sits atop a bottle of wine. Use up whatever scrap piece you have and it does not even have to be flat 100%. Cut this out with a coping saw, fret saw or on the scroll saw, drill holes for the buttons which look like grapes and drill the glass and center through holes. I stain the leaves green and put the buttons on masking tape so they stay still when I spray paint them purple. Glue the buttons in the holes you drilled earlier. Buy a case of 12 cheap wine glasses at Wal Mart add your favourite bottle of wine. VOILA, a gift for anyone at x-mas and you used up those tiny pieces in your shop that have been piling up and you just couldn’t bear to throw out.

Very interesting. I’ve never seen anything like it before.

This is a unique gift and another nice use for “scrap” material.
